    Realplayer on N95 wont play mp4 files, how come?

    Hiya,

    Ive downloaded a rather boogie music video from youtube. I used keepvid and saved it as a high quality file. It works ok and opens in apples quicktime player.

    If it put the mp4 file on my n95 it wont play, it just says playing Partial file and i just get sound.

    I thought realplayer in N95 could play mp4 files?

    I have total video convertor and xilisoft convertor. If i convert to 3gp the sound quality and video is awful even on the highest settings.

    What format can i convert it to so that my n95 plays them in thier native high quality?

    xilisoft has about 3000 different video options but its hard finding out which one lol

    thanks

    after much research, here's what i found out. Realplayer can play Youtube videos, provided the resolution 320x240 (4:3). this seems to be the maximum resolution supported for the codec used (AVC). i've downloaded a couple of vids, and Realplayer won't play those weird resolutions
