Someone sent me a video under, like he did for all any other short videos under.mp4

Normally I can save it or export it on itunes / imovie / to edit, share, etc my file.
This file he sent me does not open with quicktime, it says: File is not a movie file. So I opened it with VLC but I cant export it anywhere, I cant do anything with this file.

Can u help me find what is wrong with it and how to export it to quick, imovie, itune ??

What is the extended filename? (including the letters after the ".")

And, you say you were able to view it as a movie using VLC?
