Not Solved RE: Mp4 file is not playing after hosting in iis7..
hi Gopal, if mp4 are working fine on local but not on server, there are most likely two possibilities, either your host does not allow to play multimedia or your did not set the mime type properly

to set the mime type please follow the below steps

To correct this issue, you will need to add an MP4 MIME type to your server. Here’s how:

Right-click the site in IIS and select Properties.
Select the HTTP Headers Tab.
Select File Types.
Under the MIME Map section, select New Type.
Type “.mp4” as the associated extension and “video/mpeg” as the content type.
Click OK.

Your MP4 movies should now play when viewed from the server. If you use a hosting company to host your files, it is best to check with them about adding .MP4 as a supported MIME type.
