Well, the wiki claims:
    If you want your videos to have highest compatibility with ancient devices (e.g., old Android phones):
    -profile:v baseline -level 3.0

and regarding iOS compatability of these options:
    "All devices"

Is the wiki page really that far off? (Yes, I can actually confirm that
I have issues playing this file, but I haven't figured out why.)
