<video width="400" height="300" preload controls>

Your browser does not support the video tag.
I get a black background for the video tag with a cross image on top of it.

MP4 is a container format and could have been encoded using one of several codecs.
IE9 only supports H.264 video so your video is probably not using that codec.
This thread offers a bunch more info on the subject:
But basically if you want to use HTML5 video you will need to encode it in several formats as the browsers all support different things, and it doesn't look set to change soon as they are scrapping about who will control the video codec of the future web.
It seems to me this is a good solution to get this working for yourself:
If your browser doesn't support the html5 version then it falls back to a flash player.
