      Description

      If we upload video files (such as an mp4) into Hippo assets, and reference it in an HTML5 <video> tag, the video can be played in all browsers except Safari (9 and above). The reason is, Safari Web Browser requires the web server to support HTTP byte-range requests if it's an audio or video file [1][2]. The binaries servlet does not support byte-range requests now [3].
