Embedding Media in Confluence page - WMV files not working on Chrome or FireFox with multimedia macro

Has anybody else experienced issues with this?

Add a a wmv file as an attachment and use the multimedia macro to display it on the wiki page.

IE 9 shows the windows media player control and plays the video

Chrome - shows the windows media player control, says connecting to media then just goes back to ready :(

Firefox - does the same as Chrome

Tried on on Confluence 3.5.7 and 4.0m-27 and from different machines and different wmv files.

Get same result if add a link to the file which tries to open in full window. Is this a confluence, WMV, or browser problem?

I've noticed this to be a little flakey for .mov & .mp4 files on some different browsers also.

For an issue such as this I would suggest opening a support ticket at support.atlassian.com

Will do, just wanted to get a feel if this was a generic or specific issue

I have the same problem with wmv and mp4 on my wiki too!

I have similar problems. Also with .avi files.

Has there been any solution provided from Atlassian on this?

I see the same issue with mp4 on Firefox 16.0.2. Did anyone raise a ticket with Atlassian on this?

I believe this is not a Confluence issue but rather a "browser video support issue"; google "mp4 does not play in different browsers" or similar you will find a lot of issues related to generic browser support for the different video formats.
