I'm scanning my phone for deleted pic and video files, I would like to know the file format extensions I will be looking for so I can narrow it down. I picked some off the list above, but not sure if I need all of them. Just looking for the ones on my EVO 4G.

Hola Puta!
Of course. You just convert the exported video files to mp4 or other popular formats using our product.
Thank you for responding Christine. Yes, I can export to my PC. But, I can only view the videos through the HTC One sync manager. I cannot view the video in any other Window application. So, if I want to make a DVD copy for someone else, there is no-way they can view the video, unless they have a HTC also. So, can the videos from my HTC One be converted into a more friendly type of applicaiton for others to view?
