droid 3 won't play .mov I've downloaded several apps to try and they don't play it. Any ideas?
mx video player plays almost every codec and it is free.
Cool I'll try that one
Nope that doesn't play it either.
If you have a computer, open the movie with Quicktime .mov is the native file format.
I can do that but I wanted to be able to play it on my phone and show the video to grandparents. They don't have a computer to play it on
I downloaded VPlayer and it worked. Thanks for you help.
I found that even the big named players such as MX Player, BS Player and VLC would not play .mov files correctly, especially those that had been recoreded on my wifes iphone 4s.
The playback was very choppy on my Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 and totally unwatchable on my HTC One (M7).
The player I found and installed that will play old and new iphone movie clips (.mov) flawlessly was found here and is freely available from the Google Play Store.
Here is the best player I have found and believe me I have tried lots:
