Problem:

HTML5 Video works everywhere except the iPad / iPhone / iOS devices.

Solution:

Double check to make sure your video is H.264 encoded. Most other browsers will play other formats, even Safari on OS X via the Quicktime plugin. There are exceptions (notably browsers that require Vorbis), however, most mobile devices at this time require that specific codec.
