Problem playing an MP4 video from iPad hosted on SharePoint 2007

Hello Experts,

I have a mp4 file file that is hosted on SharePoint.
I am having a problem playing it from my iPad. I do not get an error, just an broken play button/video icon.
I know my issue is not codec related as I can play that same exact from my iPad if copy to a differnt webserver. Something about the fact that video is hosted on SharePoint is blocking the iPad from playing the video.
Any Suggestions? Thanks!

is sharepoint like a wifi spot or something?  try going into the settings in sharepoint and put like allow full use.  i know on networks you have to go in the properties and allow people to read/write so it is probably teh same thing.

Thanks for you comment, but I may need a Microsoft SharePoint Guru for this one, or a HTML 5 Code Guru.
I would also like to add that I am just clicking a link to the mp4 using a basic run of the mill A Tag.
In other words, It's just a normal link, I am not using any fancy html 5 video tag here.
Something on SharePoint,(core.js?) is causing some confusion on the iPad.
Anyone have any ideas?
I am tempted to look into a html 5 video tag solution, but I could use some advice for formatting a video tag.  In otherwords, Can someone share a complete sample starting with an IF statement so that the IF Browser is Mobile Safari or IF OS is iOS then process the video tag?
Thanks All for any advice.

in your IIS you need to add a mime type
Extension: mp4
MIME type: video/mpeg

now you should have no problems

I am sorry for the delay in responding.  Thank you for your comments.  I am only a site collection admin in share point so I asked my IIS admin to add the mp4 mime type.  That makes sense.  He said he did and the servers were restarted but continue to have the same issue playing the video on share point from iPad. Anything else to look for that can explain this?
