RevSlider Video not playing in Safari

Recommended Posts


Hi there,


I'm using WP 3.8, DMS2.0.4. This post is regarding page: http://massmosaic.com/stories/new-paltz-reuse-center/


On Firefox and Chrome, the top RevSlider plays the video correctly. However, on safari all I see is the black background color.


I've added m4v and ogg files to the slider. They are loaded into both the slide itself and in the background video area on the right. See here:



For the "slide background image" of slide 1 (which is required), I've added a 2px transparent png, because leaving that blank resulted in the video not loading.


I am stuck on how to fix this for safari and am unclear if I've set things up correctly.  Any ideas for troubleshooting? Is anyone else having this problem??


Thank you,

Hello massmosaic


Could you forward us download links to the videos so we can try to reproduce this issue for you please? 


If you could add them to dropbox or similar and send the links to hello @ pagelines dot com along with links to this forum topic 

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Your issue is related to how you have created your videos, your mp4 file isn't a valid mp4 valid, as it also contains the .m4v extension, which as far as I know is related to iTunes I think.


Anyway, I added your .m4v.mp4 video to HandBrake, converted to .mp4 correctly and the video displayed correctly in Safari. So you will need to do the same.




You can test my copy of your video by downloading it here - http://ge.tt/7b2MAKg1/v/0?c


However, you will want to do a full conversion as I did quick one so the quality is poor.

      We're seeing an abnormal break in widgets in Safari (El Capitan v10.11.4). 3 Widgets set for 4 of 12 columns each breaks correctly in Chrome and Firefox, but the 3rd widget goes to another line in Safari.
      Screenshot attached.
      Hoping there's a CSS fix you could recommend in the meantime, until an update. You can see this on our home page: www.novusweb.com.

      Trying to convert a site over to PL5 from DMS2. Can we use revslider? Can any portion of DMS2 be editable or imported through PL5?
      I'm trying to wrap my head around the new PL5 os, but things have changed so much it like learning a new software. I DO like the new UI! Great job.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      It seems that whenever media is set to be on the left, there is a problem with the way safari displays them. I used to have boxes with media on left when i was using DMS2, but since PL5, I've had to use only media on top. I know there are a few css suggestions that people have offered, but I'm wondering if such suggestions can't be built into the boxes code for PL5 rather than having to add extra CSS. Otherwise, am really liking PL5 over DMS2.
