This sounds like the the browser cannot play back the video format.

  • Can you play back mp4 (h264/aac) files at all in IE?

  • Do you have Flash installed (there is a Flash fallback)?

I am also having trouble with the Theodul Player fullscreen in IE (v_11.0.9600).
The video is vertically pushed off canvas, so that only half of the video is showing up.
Controls are completely hidden.

No Flash installed.
Other mp4 seem to work fine.

I see the fullscreen problem.

But I cannot reproduce the main issue that this ticket describes with Windows 8.1 and IE 11 or with Windows 10 and Edge or IE 11 (also IE11 behaves a little strange - opening in Tablet Mode - and different than with W8.1).

The full screen issue is solved and I had no problems with the player with IE 10 (simulated), 11 and Edge on two different machines.
