    how do I open a video downloaded from my mobile?

    I've downloaded a video of my son off my mobile onto my laptop but when I try to view it on my laptop its asks which program I'd like to use to open the file?? I've tried a few of the options but each time it fails, what do I need to do please?, rep for helpers (now going to school so won't be able to read until a bit later) thanks in advance xx

    tried win media player and it says it doesn't support the format? I've done something wrong haven't I :oops:

    download VLC media player, plays almost everything
    videolan.org/vlc/

    Media player doesn't support a lot of mobile formats.

    Try downloading Gom Player, I think that'll play most things. I use it instead of media player.

    Most phone videos are in 3gp format. You'll need this

    It says no adware or owt, but probably worth doing a check first etc...

    This is what you will need. One of the best media players, will play almost anything you chuck at it.

    WMP is crap, don't give the OP bad advice.

    It's not the WMP as you know it but more of a modified version.

    what phone did this come from

    Try downloading K Lite codec pack, a search in Google will bring it up. I've had no problems playing any type of file with sound with this!! Hope this helps!

    upload it to youtube! you can make it private if you want to
    they worry about all the conversion and stuff, and you can play it easily

    open it with Gspot to find out what codec you need to download
