mp4 files wont play on iphones

Post by razzera » 2014/10/13 10:46:50

I own a VPS server running CentOS release 5.10 (Final) with Cpanel WHM where no one can watch videos i post on any apple product.

For example take this video http://content.bitsontherun.com/videos/ ... 364766.mp4

That file plays fine on iphones when watching it on that website. BUT if i download that mp4 file and upload it to my own server, anyone with any iphone cant watch that video on my own server. i do now modify the file in any way. It plays fine on a PC or android phone / table but not Ipad and iphone

Here is an example of hosting the above file on my server and linking it extarnaly on my server.

Do anyone know why this would happen?

Sometimes, it's necessary to re-transcode it. You could try using HandBrake, or HandBrakeCLI, or ffmpeg with parameters from the conversion matrix.
