IE 11 20 seconds to load, delays Videos play starting

  • Updated

When using IE 11, mp4 videos have a 20 second or more delay before starting to play.

The metadata on mp4 files can be on the end or in the beginning of the file. When it’s on the end the full video must
be downloaded before the IE video player is ready to play.

MP4 videos play while being buffered in Chrome and FireFox. Use one of these to run MP4 videos.

The delay in MP4 video playing only occurs in IE 11.
