This is more a heads up than anything, and I wasn't sure where
to put it, but I saw people had had issues with IE9 and this may be
an overlooked fix if you're using S3 to stream your videos.
We encountered the issue where IE9 wasn't playing videos
properly. When pressing play, it would show the white circle and
not play the video.
It turned out the plugin we used to upload to S3 was not correctly
identifying the content type of the file, so when IE came along and
tried to use the mp4, it exploded (as IE9 tends to do
The solution, was to explicitly set the content type on the S3
store function. We use ruby on rails, so that's what I've pasted
below, but I'm sure the same solution would work for others:

open(current_path), 's3.address.com', :access => :public_read,
:content_type => 'video/mp4')

many thanks for pointing that. you saved me hours of work!
if you wish to change the Content-Type using S3's web interface,
you can do it under Properties>Metadata (you can select from a
list of MIME types or just write your own)
