Thank you for this article Christine smith. @Christi_smithe
You can download ArkMC to play MOV format without conversion. Just directly without copying you are able to stream, playback and download a video.
None of these suggestions worked for me......
& the Video Player is free.
Just download ''Video Player for Android'' from Google Play on your Android phone. Takes seconds and then your .mov files will automatically play. Far easier than reformatting. YOU DO NOT NEED TO CONVERT MOV FILES.
