Even asking about this is probably an exercise in futility… but here we go.
I host multiple WP sites through one install as WP Multisite. When I try to serve HTML5 video, my computer’s browsers see the video and play it just fine, but my iphone will not. After pulling out nearly all of my hair I tried something crazy: I directed my iPhone to the actual (not re-written) version of the URL for the file and BOOM. It played no problem.
So serving it up like this kills the video on my phone but not my computer:
But like this plays it without fail:
I’ll never be able to get my users to put in the full URL path when they want to link uploaded movies. Not nearly user-friendly enough for them. And it annoys the heck out of me too.
Is there a way to fix this? Is anyone else having this problem?
