    In Chrome One video works, one doesn't

    I am having an issue with html5 videos I have encoded for two.

    Both videos work in firefox. Only one video works in google chrome.

    My js is here:
    // properties
    var XML_PATH = "xml/config.xml";
    var video_width;
    var video_height;
    var videos_array=new Array();


    // init the application
    function init()
    {
    // call loadXML function
    loadXML();
    }


    // XML loading
    function loadXML()
    {
    $.ajax({
    type: "GET",
    url: XML_PATH,
    dataType: "xml",
    success: function onXMLloaded(xml)
    {
    // set video_width and video_height
    video_width=$(xml).find("videos").attr("width");
    video_height=$(xml).find("videos").attr("height");

    // loop for each item
    $(xml).find('item').each(function loopingItems(value)
    {
    // create an object
    var obj={title:$(this).find("title").text(), mp4:$(this).find("mp4").text(), ogg:$(this).find("ogg").text(), description:$(this).find("description").text()};
    videos_array.push(obj);

    // append <ul> and video title
    $("#mycustomscroll").append('<ul>');
    $("#mycustomscroll").append('<a><li id="item"><strong>'+(value+1)+"</strong><br/><strong>Title: </strong>"+obj.title+'</li></a>');
    });

    // close </ul>
    $("#mycustomscroll").append('</ul>');
    // append video tag player
    $("#leftcolumn").append('<video width="'+video_width+'" height="'+video_height+'" controls="controls"><source src="'+videos_array[0].mp4+'" type="video/mp4" /><source src="'+videos_array[0].ogg+'" type="video/ogg" />Your browser does not support the video tag.</video>');
    // append description
    $("#description").append(videos_array[0].description);

    // call addListeners function
    addListeners();
    }
    });
    }

    // add <li> listener
    function addListeners()
    {
    // loop for each list item
    $('#mycustomscroll li').each(function looping(index)
    {
    // onclick...
    $(this).click(function onItemClick()
    {
    // empty left column and description
    $("#leftcolumn").empty();
    $("#description").empty();
    // append video tag
    $("#leftcolumn").append('<video width="'+video_width+'" height="'+video_height+'" controls="controls"><source src="'+videos_array[index].mp4+'" type="video/mp4" /><source src="'+videos_array[index].ogg+'" type="video/ogg" />Your browser does not support the video tag.</video>');
    // append description
    $("#description").append(videos_array[index].description);
    });
    });
    }

    my css is here:
    body
    {
    font-family: 'Droid Sans', 'Arial', sans-serif;
    color: #6F7986;
    font-size: 14px;
    }

    header
    {
    text-align: center;
    }

    footer
    {

    }

    select
    {
    width: 240px;
    }

    #wrapper
    {
    margin: 0 auto;
    width: 600px;
    background-color:#000;
    }

    #leftcolumn
    {
    color: #333;
    background-color: #000;
    margin: 10px 5px 10px 0px;
    padding: 10px;
    height: 3s68px;
    width: 550px;
    float: left;
    }

    #description
    {
    color: #333;
    border: 1px solid #ccc;
    background-color: #F2F2E6;
    margin: 10px 5px 10px 0px;
    padding: 10px;
    height: 100%;
    width: 848px;
    float: left;
    }

    #rightcolumn
    {
    display: inline;
    position: relative;
    float: right;
    color: #666;
    background-color: #000;
    margin: 10px 0px 10px 0px;
    padding: 10px;
    height: 318px;
    width: 200px;
    }

    #mycustomscroll
    {
    list-style: none;
    height: 298px;
    overflow: auto;
    position: relative;
    background-color: #F2F2E6;
    margin: 0.3em auto;
    font-size: 12px;
    }

    #mycustomscroll li
    {
    font-size: 12px;
    width: 230px;
    background-color: #333;
    color: #CCC;
    padding: 5px;
    margin: 10px;
    cursor: pointer;
    }

    #mycustomscroll a
    {
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    #mycustomscroll a:hover li
    {
    background-color: #6F7986;
    color: #FFF;
    }

    html is here:
    <div>
    <div id="leftcolumn">
    <div id="wrapper">
    </div>
    </div>



    <div id="rightcolumn">

    <div id='mycustomscroll'>

    </div>

    </div>

    </div>

    xml is here:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <videos width="848" height="368">
    <item>
    <title>Tear it Out</title>
    <mp4>http://traumaslave.com/tearitout.mp4</mp4>
    <ogg>http://traumaslave.com/tearitout.mp4</ogg>
    </item>

    <item>
    <title>Answers to Nothing</title>
    <mp4>http://css.flepstudio.org/demo/video_player/assets/videos/Answers_to_Nothing.mp4</mp4>
    <ogg>http://css.flepstudio.org/demo/video_player/assets/videos/Answers_to_Nothing.ogv</ogg>
    </item>
    </videos>

    as you can see, on is hosted at flepstudio.org, one is hosted on my website. I cannot figure out why the videos both work in firefox, but only the one hosted on flepstudio.org works in chrome. any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jennifer Eckert

    PS, I know my coding is very messy, so is my file arrangement. This is the primary stage of development for me.

    you need to set the proper MIME types in your .htaccess file.

    AddType audio/ogg oga ogg
    AddType video/ogg ogv
