We have lot of videos that are hosted in our environment and we have used the OOTB media web part to show the video on page ,but the videos are not playing in Ipad .Is there any extra codec does we need to install for the web part to play the video on Ipad

  • try installing Silverlight plugin in Ipad see if it works ? if it does not then you need to create custom webpart using flash player.

  • Flash is not an option for iOS devices. You would most likely have to create an HTML5 player
