    I am developing a web application with which user can view files in the iPad (Safari browser). I am able to download and view .pdf, .doc,.ppt files. But i am unable to download and view MP4 and 3GP files. I have added correct mime type in the IIS. I am getting following error in Safari (iPad) "BYTE_RANGE_ERROR_MESSAGE". I am using IIS 7.0 in Windows Server 2008.

    Note:I am able to download all the files in PC using IE, Mozilla and Safari.

    for play MP4 file in ipad, use HTML5 Video tag.

    thanks for quick reply. Actually the files are not static and user can upload any file type and not necessarily an MP4 file type. Because of which i can't use the HTML tag.
