    Just so you know, if you are talking about your Optimus running FroYo, then you'll be happy to hear things have changed. My SGS2 (last year's top model) records video in .mp4 format and plays fine on Windows 7 machines.

    Do you happen to know if Gingerbread, which I can re-re-ugrade to, does your mp4 trick?

    Sorry, I don't remember. I haven't used GB in months. It may also be part of the specific phone rom so you should ask in LG Optimus S - Android Forums to be sure.

    Just get VLC media player on your her PC, its free and plays ANYTHING, even half downloaded broken files as it will fix them.

    videolan.org/vlc/

    VLC Player will most likely play it, and if it can play it, it'll convert it also

    Its also simply the best videos player =p

    It does a great job of playing. But the converting to MP4 was botched; choppy audio, the whole thing ended too soon even though it took forever to convert.

    That there
