    I downloaded a movie, and the format is .mp4 I though the iphone i would play the mp4. That was a no go. I was unable to play it with quick time. I tried to get a s/n to register it as quick time pro. But that didnt work either. Got some bad s/n from waffles.

    My question is, how can i get this to play without using VLC? Is there a converter that every one likes to use due to its simplicity?

    You can also use VisualHub. If you have an iPhone, you really should have VisualHub. Converts just about anything to just about anything else. Works great.

    VisualHub is not free but well worth the $24 for it.

    Yeah Perian is great. Perian and the DivX codecs are about all you need.
