    Hi

    Was just wondering if somebody could help me out. I've done some searching around but havent really been able to find a definite answer.
    Basically im trying to play some MP4 files in Front Row, but it keeps saying that it is an unsupported format.
    I have Perian installed, but still no luck. Does this mean i will have to convert them in order to play? And if so what would be the best format?
    Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but i dont know a great deal when it comes to video formats/converting etc.

    Thanks.

    MP4 is just a container format, it depends on the actual codec of the file.

    You'll have to convert them.
