Open e-mail attachment

I just recieved an e-mail with an mp4 video attached and it says that it is an "unsupported attachment". From what I understand the playbook should be able to open mp4s. Do I need an app for it or something?

 

Thanks,

Maybe it has the wrong codec.  see this PDF for supported formats. If this is not working for you, please provide more information

Re: Open e-mail attachment

ngiugovaz, the PB can open *.mp4 or *.3gp files but the email message program does not support these files as well as *.TXT or *.HTM attachments. if you download the attachments to your phone you can open them all. you should be able to view video's through bridge. And you can only view *.txt and *.htm files on your phone. In all of RIM's wisdom they opted not to support .txt, .htl attachments.

Re: Open e-mail attachment

I'm trying to open http://www.pdfpictures.com/pdf/download.php?name=NASA-Full.pdf specifically. It works but the video won't play. How can I tell what the codec is on it? if that link didnt work, its the NASA brochure on this page: http://www.pdfpictures.com/ebrochures.html

 

Are Playbooks programed to support interactive PDFs? I think most of them are in SWF format.

 

Thanks so much
