New to html, can't get video to play in browser?

I am unable to get my video to play in browser when I click the "play" button. I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks!

<video poster= "videoposter.jpg" width="40%" height="40%" controls= "controls">
<source src="video/phone.mp4" type='video/mp4'/>
<source src="video/phone.webm" type='video/webm; codecs"vp8, vorbis"' />
<source src="video/phone.ogv" type='video/ogv; codecs="theora, vorbis"'/>

Your browser doesn't support the video element in HTML5.
</video>

Answer

Possible reasons could be :

1). File path of video isn't correct. Look at developer console in browser to get this rectified.
2). IIS in Win 7 Pro does not have mp4 in it's mime types. Must add add the mime type. see instructions for adding mime type in link below.
