Nick changes his HTML from bridge.mp4 to bridge-audio.mp3 and you need to change the type from video/mp.4 to audio/mp3 … maybe this is the reason … if you wrote a bit more about the problem … would be good, regards, Jan.

The same thing happened to me. What I did was I added the alternate source, the .ogg file and it worked!
