Default watching video sent from iphone via gmail

My friend sent me a video that she recorded using her iPhone via email. I couldn't open the attachment through the stock gmail app. I went on the browser to access the desktop version of gmail and when I went to download the video a message came up saying I didn't have a program to march the video. Is there an app out there so that I can view videos on my evo sent through email....especially watch videos from iPhone users. Let me know....thanks.

I had the same issue with a PDF attachement.
I had to forward the gmail to my pop account on my phone, so I could view the PDF.

What file format was the movie?

One would assume that iPhones would record in 3GP or MP4 or something like that but knowing Apple its probably a proprietary quiicktimes format. .mov or something.

Default I had a couple

I had a couple videos I couldn't play that I downloaded. Don't think they where .mov format, but I just renamed them .mp4 and they worked. Not very knowledgeable about video formats and such, but its worth a shot.

I used file expert to rename them. I'm sure astrology file manager will work to.

Edit: qqplayer says it plays .mov
