Some video files have their meta-data at the end of the file rather than at the start. So this makes it impossible for the video plugin to start the video until it gets the metadata.
Workaround to this problem is to remux (re-encode) the video file in question with a tool called mp4box. Look for the doc and download links from this link http://www.videohelp.com/tools/mp4box.
Once you download the tool, run the following command to fix the video file:
Code: Select all
mp4box -isma <video_file>
If you have multiple files you can write batch script or look for some graphical frontends available for mp4box. Search google to find them
