Air play and mp4 files on iPad

Hi All.  I have my Roku Premiere up to date with the Airplay. I tried connecting my iPad to the Roku and was able to play something that was streaming from my iPad so I'm obviously connected which is half the battle. What i'm trying to do though is watch Mp4s that are on my iPad in the TV app. The mp4 I have there now is being called "unsupported".  Because the files are on my iPad, i'm trying to figure out what file will be able to work on the TV app on the iPad (so that it will copy ONTO the iPad and ALSO will be supported on the Air Play.  Any thoughts?
