Default Video Playback on PC


Hi All,

I have a O2 XDA. I've taken some video and decided to download it to my PC.

However, it will not play in Windows Media Player, Real or anything. The
file is an MPEG-4 and I have Media Player 10.

Can anyone please assist?

TIA - H

I am not sure, but I seem to remember that WM will not play mpeg-4.

If it is an XDAII, the Album application will do it. If it is the first XDA,
you will need something like

Thanks for responding Helio,

I find it odd that a video recording in Pocket PC will not work on XP.
Surely one would expect these files to work across microsofts own
platforms - or have I missed something.

Thanks again.

I didn't understand that your problem was playing on the Media Player at the
PC with XP.

Well, MS did a choice on pushing their own WMV instead of MPEG-4.

However, there are many players for MPEG-4 files, and the best in my humble
opinion is Quicktime.
