.Mov & .mp4 videos (again)
I just picked up an N7 a couple of days ago. It's a replacement for my venerable iPad 1st Gen, which has served well but is now unsupported, and I deem iPad Mini 'Retinas' to be too pricey. The N7 is a 32GB, wifi only model. Never used Android before, but so far, so good in getting up and running. Quite fun experimenting with the flexibility and so on that iOS doesn't include, but no doubt I have only scratched the surface so far. Love the sharp screen!
My question (and I know there are threads on this topic, but I don't think they answer my specific issue. Apologies if I have missed something and this is a straight repeat):
I have a MacBook Air, plus a BlackBerry Q10 (surprisingly, Mac and BB talk to each other very easily via BB Link software, including media uploading and syncing). My wife also has a BB, plus an iPad Mini. I have been able to transfer my photos from Mac to N7 without any difficulties via AFT, and installed QuickPic so I could order my photos by month and year. Try as I might, I cannot get my videos to play! I downloaded MX Player, but whilst it recognizes and appears to play the file (i.e. I can see a time bar working), there is no video! The vids from my wife's iPad are .MOV or .mp4 format, depending on whether they were taken with the iPad or the BB. I have also tried most other video players on the Play store, but without success.
Just to confuse me even further, the N7 will play a vid that my wife has emailed to me as an attachment! But anything imported via iPhoto / AFT is a no go.
Any advice appreciated. Thank you.
