Fix- Embedded WordPress Videos Won’t Play in Internet Explorer

If you are having trouble getting your embedded videos to play in Internet Explorer I have done a lot of research and finally found a fix.

Webmasters-

If you are having trouble getting your embedded videos to play in Internet Explorer I have done a lot of research and finally found a fix.

By default WordPress wraps videos in an <object> tag.  Some of your videos may also be wrapped in a <p> tag.

These will not render in Internet Explorer.

To fix this issue you need to wrap your embedded video in a </div> like this:

<div style="text-align: center">

Remember to add the closing </div> at the end of the embedded video.

Your video will now render in Internet Explorer!!

Any comments and/or concerns are more than welcome!
