Allow video and animation on a Web page that uses a legacy media player

This policy setting allows you to play video and animation through legacy media players in a specified zone. Video and animation playback through the object tag may still be allowed as this involves external controls or media players.

A legacy media player is specified by the dynsrc attribute on the img tag. Also, as of Internet Explorer 8, HTML+TIME media elements that refer to audio and video files are controlled by this setting.

If you enable this policy setting, video and animation can be played through legacy media players in the zones chosen.

If you disable this policy setting, video and animation cannot be played through legacy media players.

If you do not configure this policy setting, video and animation can be played through legacy media players in the zones chosen.


Supported on: At least Internet Explorer 7.0
