H.264 MP4 on project web stopped playing on only some browsers

On our project web SF hosted website suddenly mp4 (H.264) video is not playing on iOS Safari/WebKit browsers anymore. The videos on those pages
are playing in Safari on Mac and they were playing on Safari on iPhone or iPad some days ago, but now they are not playing on iOS anymore. It's not the video-embed tag, because those videos are also not playing when linked directly: http://www.safeexambrowser.org/Media/SafeExamBrowser.mp4
But when I download them from your server to the iPad (using for example GoodReader), then the video plays locally.
Then I tried to copy the whole website to a local server and the video to another server, there this same video is playing on Safari iOS without problems.
This page hosted on project web has first the local saved MP4 video embedded, that is not playing. Below the exact same file is embedded from another server, that one is playing without problems:
(video direct link http://digital-lifestyle.ch/media/SafeExamBrowser.mp4 )
For me it looks like some server setting (maybe something with MIME types?) on your project web server causes those videos to not play anymore (as mentioned, they definitely were playing on iOS Safari when I tried it some days ago).
Were some settings changed recently? Do you have an idea what could be the problem and how it could be solved?
