Most likely, your video is encoded by the H.265 codec, which is not supported by most browsers, including Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

What should I do now? #

At the moment, the only option is to convert the video to the H.264 codec and upload it again into a page.
You can do this through this online service – https://anyconv.com/h265-to-h264-converter/
You can also use the Freemake desktop converter – hhttps://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter/
