That file is deployed with content-type: text/plain - setting it
to video/mp4 might help.

Yes, iPad seems to have problems with mp4 files - not iPhone and
iPod though - your sample file will not play on older small iOS
devices though because of the high profile.

The needed php incantations might vary from server to server.
Deploying video via php will put a lot of straing on your server,
don't do it unless you absolutely have to.
