    Hi...

    First: I'm not english, so sorry for my bad english.

    I have load some mp4 files on my webhost directory. (Apache server)
    If i try to view the file over the safari browser (http://localhost or ip/video.mp4), it shows me many hieroglyphic signs and dont play the movie.
    But if i launch the file from an external Server it works.

    And also if i connect to this video on my ipod, with a other pc, the movie start.

    What can it be???

    Rename the file from .mp4 to .mov then mobile safari will play it
