    I can watch Apple website videos just fine on Windows/Chrome browser (or IE, Firefox) but can't on Samsung Android/Chrome browser (also tried Firefox, Opera, Samsung browser).
    Other websites embedded videos are working (i.e. youtube, vimeo, forums etc.) so far it is only the Apple website embedded videos that are not working.

    Any idea why?

    If it's any help, here is what Samsung Support says:

    Please wait for a Samsung Agent to respond.

    Alberto: Hi, thank you for reaching out to Samsung technical support. How may I assist you?
    Alex: Hi there
    Alex: Why I can't see Apple website videos on Samsung tablet? Used many browsers, same result...
    Alex: I can watch Apple website videos just fine on Windows/Chrome browser (or IE, Firefox) but can't on Samsung Android/Chrome browser (also tried Firefox, Opera, Samsung browser). Other websites embedded videos are working (i.e. youtube, vimeo, forums etc.) so far it is only the Apple website embedded videos that are not working. Any idea why?
    Alberto: Hello, I understand that you want to see apple website videos on Samsung tablet, is it correct?
    Alex: correct
    Alberto: Thank you for the confirmation.
    Alberto: What is the model number of your tablet? It starts with GT/SM which can be found on the rear panel.
    Alex: Don't have it with me but it's the Tab S 8.4
    Alex: Same goes for my phone, Galaxy S5
    Alberto: Okay,Do you see any error message while browsing?
    Alex: nope, no error, it just won't play any video on apple website, ALL other websites videos are plaing OKare
    Alex: playing Ok is what I meant
    Alex: and this is the same for my tablet AND my phone
    Alex: devices are updated to the latest software bla, bla
    Alberto: Alright, please restart the tablet once.
    Alex: scale of 1 to 10 on tech advance level, I am at 7-8, just so you don't take me through power recycle and such
    Alex: you just did
    Alex: it's not that
    Alberto: Could you give me a few minutes while I gather the information for you?
    Alex: you can grab a galaxy tablet or a phone and try for yourself and yo'll probably notice it won't work...
    Alberto: I appreciate your time and patience.
    Alberto: As you are able to see other website's embedded videos on your tablet, it could be an issue with the compatibility of Apple website.
    Alberto: There should be no issue with the trablet as other websites are working fine.
    Alex: Can you transfer me to your Guru tech person to see if I can get a more elaborate answer and maybe a fix for this?
    Alex: Then why the apple videos work fine on windows PC and the ONLY ones not working are Android devices?
    Alberto: I have rechecked the information.
    Alberto: As you are facing an issue only with a particular web site there should not be issue with the Samsung tablet.
    Alberto: Also tablet is working fine with other web sites which indicates that there is an issue with that particular web site.
    Alberto: There is no separate setting on the tablet to access any particular web site.
    Alex: This much I figured, problem is what is causing it and how it can be solved? Again, issue is only on Android devices. PC Windows and iOS devices work good
    Alberto: I am afraid; Samsung do not have information about the issues with a particular web site.
    Alberto: I would have surely helped, if there had been information available with me.
    Alex: Yes, I was afraid you'll say this...
    Alex: Do you have an android device there? Try it yourself and see it will not work. Whatever it is IT IS A PROBLEM!!!
    Alberto: I understand your requirement; however, it will not be possible for me to check this from here.
    Alberto: You need to contact the web site support for further assistance.
    Alberto: Is there anything I might be able to assist you with?
    Alex: yeah, it went as expected, no fix for this... do you have a level 2 or 3 or 4 tech there?
    Alberto: I will transfer this chat to my supervisor.
    Alberto: Please be online while I transfer this chat.
    Alex: sure, thanks
    Alberto: Not a problem.

    Sammy: Hello Alex. I am the supervisor of Alberto.
    Sammy: I am going through the previous chat session.
    Alex: Ok, thanks
    Sammy: You are welcome.
    Sammy: I appreciate your time and patience.
    Sammy: I see that you are unable to access Apple website videos on your tab.
    Alex: and on my S5
    Sammy: As you are able to access the videos from all the other web sites, it is not an issue with Samsung tab and Samsung do not have any control on this issue.
    Sammy: It is an issue with that particular web site and you need to contact the web site support for further assistance.
    Sammy: There is no separate setting on the tab to access a particular web site.
    Alex: Yes, I need to do that. At this point it's the technical aspect that bothers me, not that I can't watch the video, I can use my iPhone or my PC to watch the video, but why the Android can't?
    Alex: Thank you Alberto
    Alex: or Sammy
    Sammy: I understand your requirement; however, we do not have any information about this issue.
    Alex: Ok, thanks
    Sammy: I apologize for the inconvenience.

    Welcome to Android Central! Apple videos are in Quicktime format, which are not compatible on Android browsers. You can watch them on your computer because the computer probably has the Quicktime plugin (which is only for browsers on Windows, not on Android).

    A workaround may be to save the video to the device, and play it with a video player app that is capable of playing Quicktime (.MOV) files.

    Thank you for your response. Makes sense. I'll try to download to see if it works this way.
