    Hello. I recently started using an embedded video player for my desktop app. For rendering purposes, I found using WebKit worked the best on Windows. Through testing and even after deploying the app, the videos played well. Today I am seeing the following message on the Windows app (Mac is still working fine)

    Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available. Click here to visit our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video

    Any thoughts? Is there something that needs to be downloaded?

    Update. So I searched that message and watched a read a couple of articles saying to make sure browsers are up to date. I didn't even do anything differently (update browsers or make any changes) and went to watch a video on Windows, and they play fine now. Weird.

    Could this just be an unknown glitch that corrected itself? Or is this something I need to concern myself with on an occasional basis?
