    I had confiured the httpd-2.0.54 on imx51 freescale processor board( and trying to display video through
    apache httpd webserver on client web browser through html coding. I am trying to play video files for mp4 and 3gp video codec format.

    I have installed Quicktime player to play video on my window system.
    1) When I am accessing the file from web broser like firefox or IE, than its playing the video on target system ( window system).
    Ex:- by firefox on window working
    But Whenever I am trying to display the same video file through Ipod Itouch (8GB flash) safari web browser.
    than it can'not display/plying and show message video file can not playing.
    Ex:- by safari on Ipod Itouch not working.
    2) For test purpose on my other linux system, I had installed same apache httpd-2.0.54 and accessing the same video file from

    Ipod Itouch than I can access the video and even it's playing the video. I can play all the video codec format like 3gp,mp4 and m4v by this.

    3) For error detaction.
    I saw the log file /usr/logs/access_log and find difference that
    whenever I succeed to access/play video file on web browser than in access_log file I have log like this [ date format ] "GET /fv.mp4 http 1.1" 200 24536

    but when I can't access/play video from Ipod Itouch, than access_log file have log like this
    first try for mp4 file
    Ex:- [ date format ] "GET /fv.mp4 http 1.1" 304 -
    second try for 3gp file [ date format ] "GET /50cent.3gp http 1.1" 206 2
