Allow Video format to play in MediaPlayer

This is a common problem with video format type to play in the web site/web applications if we use the media player.

In this article, I would like to give a simple solution to allow the “*.mp4” format video files to play in the media player in our web application in the IIS. 

This video file format is not allowed in the IIS under MIME type. The following steps are done in the Internet Information Server (IIS).
Step# 1
Start IIS Manager

Select the appropriate website to which we want to allow “mp4” format, then click MIME types

Step# 2
Click on Add

 Step# 3
Enter the video format information
File name extension: .mp4
MIME type: video/mp4

 Step# 4
Restart IIS.
