Can't play video on g1

  1. I've converted a movie to MPEG1 to view on my G1. I couldn't find it in the Gallery section, nor under MixZing's Video tab. So I went through Astro to find it.

    Sure enough, I see the icon for it, but when I tap the icon to view the movie I get a warning saying, "Cannot play video. Sorry, this video cannot be played."

    So I converted to MPEG2. Same result.

    Am I doing something wrong or can mpegs not be played on the G1? (I'm pretty sure they can...I once watched a downloaded TV series on it.)

    Only MPEG-4's (MP4) can be played in Android. Its pretty much a standard in the mobile phone industry now.
