Wink Sorry, this video cannot be played

I recently purchased a htc desire s and have been quite happy with it. I recently bought a sandisk 32gb micro-sd card to store all my media from iTunes. All my music transferred fine but when I try to play my movies (in mp4 format) an error message appears saying 'Sorry, this video cannot be played'. I have tried many different players and the same always happens. Any help would be appreciated.

P.S. I checked on play store and flash player has not got any available updates.

Well, it could be that the file format isn't supported, or that there is DRM on the video. Does it have any DRM?

I'm not sure, I just bought them straight off the store (episodes of inbetweeners and three movies). Do all iTunes movies have DRM?...and I assume there is no way to get rid of it?

If you got it from iTunes, it probably has DRM. Getting rid of DRM is tricky, and it depends on the arrangements you used to acquire the media. This is why I don't purchase from iTunes.

You can buy movies from RealPlayer, and Real Player has an Android app. Haven't tried them though.
