MP4 video in IE

I have an html5 video tag with a mp4 and ogg sources. It works well everywhere except on IE 11/10/9/... but if I open the .mp4 file directly into IE, it play it. After my browsing here, the main advice I've found is to specify the mime-type with

AddType video/ogg  .ogv
AddType video/mp4  .mp4
AddType video/webm .webm

and to be sure that gzip is not activated. But it still won't works. The page can be found here

EDIT As specified in the answer, it was a codec problem. As this video is generated with ffmpeg, here's my corrected command :

ffmpeg -r 10 -y -i ./path/to/%05d.jpg -vcodec libx264 -preset slow -crf 24 -pix_fmt yuv420p ./path/to/video.mp4


The video track in the MP4 uses a codec browsers can't play in the video element (MPEG-4 Visual/MPEG-4 Part 2). I imagine when you enter the URL directly into the browser IE is using Windows Media Player or some other plugin to play it. Other browsers can play the ogg version.

You should re-encode the MP4 using the h264 codec.
