Here's the metadata from a video file that does not work on iPad and iPhone. Does anything about the audio stick out at you?

avprobe version 0.8.17-4:0.8.17-0ubuntu0.12.04.1, Copyright (c) 2007-2014 the Libav developers

Not at all - nothing in that metadata looks like it would be problematic.

  • MP3 support is quite good
  • h264 is one of the preferred codecs for iOS since quite some time.

You may have to check the correctness of the file or transcode it or get a more thorough error confpdition if ones like this fail to play on iOS.

  • What do you mean by checking the correctness? – Rayhan Muktader Oct 1 '18 at 13:45
