As long as the user has the flashPlayer and the video was encoded with H.264 they will be able to view it. File format doesn't matter.
Thanks for this. Unfortunately, iPhone's don't seem to have the
flashPlayer installed. I guess they just need to download them.
Ah yes - the iPhone does not, and likely never will, have the flashPlayer on it, nor any other plug-in (outside of Quicktime of course). Though, if that mp4 was encoded using H.264, then the iPhone should be able to load and play it natively.

I have noticed recently that MP4 videos encoded in H264 by Premier Pro for example, will not play on an iPhone unless it is encoded by one of Apple's own tools, such as QuickTime Pro. This appears to follow the news that Apple is preventing "3rd party tools" from being able to produce material to playback on the iPhone, iPad, etc. Initially, I did not realize that MP4 (or MOV) videos would be impacted but it seems they are.
Have you noticed any other discussions along this line or if you have observed this also?
