    Hello Webdesignforum Community!

    I am very impressed with the unity of this site and I just signed up as I have not found an answer to a seemingly simple question. First of all, thank you for reading my post and your willingness to help.
    I have a website and I added a page to it (not public so can not get to it through the site). The page works great on a PC or MacBook, but throws the "404 - Page Not Found Error" when I try to open the URL on my old iPhone 3S.
    also, on an older mac, the page opens but the embedded video does not show, which might be related to H.264?

    Most importantly, how could I make iPhone display the page? Here is my very basic index.html file:
    (I put ******* where the website name is)

    <p align="center"><img src="http://**********.com/cclogosmall230.png" width="230" height="104" title="" alt="" />&nbsp;&nbsp;<font face="wp_bogus_font">presents a video demonstration for&nbsp;<img src="http://**********.com/start/demoCC/cc_logo.png"width="276"height="131"title=""alt=""/><br />
    </font></p>
    <table style="width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; background-color: #000000"summary=""cellspacing="0"cellpadding="0"bordercolor="#000000"border="1">
    <tbody>
    <tr valign="top">
    <td width="100%"><br />
    <center>
    <iframe src="http://************.com/start/demoCC/CC.mp4"width="856"height="480"></iframe>
    <p><font size="4"></font></p>
    <p align="center"><font size="2"></font><font face="wp_bogus_font">Copyright ****** 2012</font>&nbsp;</p></center></td></tr></tbody></table>

    Thank you very much for your help. Again, I would like this simple page to display on older iProducts.

    Cheers,
    Karl

    Hi Karl,

    The page shouldn't throw a 404 based on platform/OS. In this case, what I would suggest might have happened is that you have a transposition error or some other error in the URL on your old iPhone.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    What he said, a device and its client have nothing to do with what the "server" response is.

    As for detecting, why are you picking 1 device ? Point being, the older 3GS IPhone could have several different OS's ... 4.0 - 5.0 version...

    I'm not aware of a particular way of detecting a hardware, or should I more accurately say, a reliable way of detecting a particular HARDWARE version.

    There are however multiple ways of detecting what "browser" and what "browser version" ( which is way more accurate and reliable ), to send a mobile browser to a specific page or serve specific content to a mobile device.

    That being said, search these forums for "browser detection" and you should find an answer there.
