    Cannot get video to play from a website (giants.com). Can download audio and there seems to be
    no problems with other video (eg You Tube )

    Any help to get this to work would be appreciated.

    Sounds like the format of streaming video they use is not iPad friendly, ie. not supported by the iPad and safari.

    The website probably uses Flash video, which is not supported by the iPad.
    If you read this thread, there are some recommendations of apps that can convert Flash content into a form that's playable on the iPad.

    If you go to Giants.com from a mobile device, you end up on their mobile site and videos play without a problem on your device. I just tried it with my iPhone.
