Instead of the normal embedded Media Element video player working properly, on Safari Desktop and Safari/Chrome/Firefox on iPhone, the video player does not work. It's black and provides the actual video download beginning with mejs.download-file: https://cdn.elitesportsny.com etc. ...

Please help. Thanks.

Are we sure this is the same issue? In my case, the videos are also not working on Chrome and Firefox on the iPhone. They work find on an Android/Samsung, but not iPhone (which is extremely concerning and group of many readers for our site).

Are we sure it's the same issue? Thanks,

... there MUST be something I can do to patch this up for the time being. I can't let this go on any longer. Thanks,
