video file format on phone

I've got a g2 handset and the video camera on it, whilst being very good, appears to do the files in 3gp format. For some easing these won't play on my Vista laptop. Any reason for that or am I missing something?

My phone records with MP4 and that would not work untill I installed Nero 8

This will help and doesn't require you to install nero.

Tried a few things from there. Can't seem to get anything to work - I'll give it a shot in the morning...

It seems to cope with most file formats.

Just tried that VLC player. Either I'm doing something wrong or missing something really obvious. Nothing seems to work.

I've tried all these programs suggested and installed them.

I go through the cnmversion process and all looks good. Then I try and play the damn thing in WMP and get the same error message appearing.

Annoying!!!

Bizzarely, the videos work fine if I upload them straight to YouTube, which I worked out yesterday I can do directly from my phone. All is not lost then, and will save me a bit of hard disc space.
