In the meantime, the iOS app is open source, everyone can contribute or if you wish a special feature make a feature request and can even put some money on it via bountysource.

FYI, I think this is solved when the XSendfile Module is enabled for static file delivery. I got it working and now I can view mp4 files on an iphone via the owncloud website (not the app, the app always worked), plus the download button works on an iphone now too for me. Also playing mp4 files through chrome and firefox works way better.

Here's a thread in these forums about it:

here's a link in owncloud documentation about it, though it doesn't mention that it solves this problem that:
https://doc.owncloud.org/server/8.0/adm ... ation.html

also make sure your core modules are enabled by running these commands (my headers module was not enabled which I believe is required for xsendfile to function)
sudo a2enmod rewrite
sudo headers
sudo env
sudo dir
sudo mime

and the conf file the owncloud documentation tells you to edit is here (at least in my Ubuntu/Apache2 setup)

Make sure to restart apache afterwards.

Hope this helps!
