try installing the Khan Academy iOS app on the iPhone instead. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/khan-academy/id469863705 You should be able to play the video streams right from within the app instead of using the Safari or Chrome apps.
Unfortunately the use of such software has a pre-requisite of AirPlay Mirroring, which is not supported by an iPhone 4 at any OS level, hence teh requirement for an iPhone 4s minimum. If you had a device that supports it, then it's pretty straightforward (take a look at this answer elswhere on AskDifferent) but with an iPhone 4, you are out of luck unless ...

The official specification of MP4 do not allow the AC3 format for the audio channel, but the H264 format is possible for the video. Thus, you can convert ...
According to a post on VLC's own forum, there is a "known issue" with streaming directly from a NAS. Here's what they have to say on the streaming from NAS issue.
