    Recently I discovered an issue with browsing one of my sites on the iPad. Specifically, the radWindow control. So I decided to share how exactly to test on the iPad when you don't have an iPad.
    1. First you'll need to download the Safari Browser. http://www.apple.com/safari/
    2. Install Safari
    3. Open Safari
    4. Use Ctrl+, to open the preferences window
    5. Goto Extensions and disable any Flash extensions
    6. Now go to the Advanced tab
    7. Select checkbox to Enable "Show Develop menu in menu bar"
    8. Close the preferences
    9. In the upper right of Safari, click the icon that looks like a document, it will open a dropdown
    10. Select "Develop" > "User Agent" > "Safari iOS 3.2.2 - iPad"
    11. The page you are visiting will refredh and now you will be emulating an iPad
    12. Now you can use the developer tools for Safari (Much like FireBug) to inspect elements and test your site as if you were using an iPad.
    13. Happy debugging!

    when i itested on ipadpeek.com , it works. 
    i had found your great tips to test ipad looks in safari using you defined above.
    here also the videos are playing very well .
    i changed the user agent sting which client have.( each time the user agent sting which request for video , i am storing in one notepad)
    so i have client's ipad user agent sting. and i insert into safari browser and using your trick, it works... mean the videos are working.

    so may be this is the issue with ipad or some configuration is needed to play the video in ipad???? may be client side device issue??
