    Problems playing video sent from iPhone on my MBP
    Im currently Mobilizing to go overseas and my wife has been taking videos of my daughter with her iPhone 4 and emailing them to me. The first two, I opened my email and downloaded them to my desktop, no problem. The last three ive tried to download have started downloading but when the reach about 1mb of 5 or 6 they stop and a window opens saying "The document “IMG_0407.MOV” could not be opened. The movie is not in a format that QuickTime Player understands."

    Can someone please let me know what is going on...

    Could be something to do with the large video files -- email is not the best way to send video files unless they are very small.

    I would suggest that a much more efficient route would be to have your wife post the videos to a PRIVATE YouTube account (yes, videos can be marked private and passworded). All she has to send you is the URL then.
