    I've got an LG phone with a memory card. I can move a video file over to the PC, but what stupid format is it in? I've tried renaming it to AVI, MPG, etc. but can't get it to play.

    Or is there a program to change the format?

    They might be 3g2 files (3gpp2)

    Both Quicktime and RealPlayer can handle them.

    I think some phones are mjpeg,"motion jpeg" also called "video jpeg".Not many things play it.It's related to webcam video.

    It shjows as a 3G2 format, but neither Quicktime nor Realplayer would run it. Now I gotta get rid of that stupid RealPlayer. Again...

    I updated Quicktime to 6.5, and now the videos work. Thanks for the input.
