Anyone know about serving MP4 over the web?

I put a movie on our server saved as MP4... but if I set the file name 
of  the player to it's URL, it doesn't work. We don't have QT streaming 
yet, but I was still hoping our broad band users could view this on 
PORT 80 with HTTP and start seeing it as sson as enough got buffered... 
(yes, i know that's bad... but all we got right now, won't be that many 
hits) It also doesn't work from a web page or from QT player either. 
The movie is fine... if I set the file name of the player to the same 
movie sitting on a server on the LAN, it plays just fine. Does the 
server need to be configured to serve MP4? if you know anything, please 
email me off list. I also posted to the quicktime-talk list at apple. 
But thought you wizards might know... btw... there's an OT thread going 
on that list about about iShell vs Director...maybe we should jump into 
plug Rev? (or wait until 2.0 is out and is really solid?)
