    It's very possible. .mp4 is a container so audio/video codec within can vary. Perhaps it's an audio codec used there that apple didn't implement support for.

    Have you installed perian? Makes quicktime able to play a lot more formats.

    Still Quicktime player X isn't as thought out as mplayerx, but at least it enables quicklook for lots of more formats.

    The only reason I want VLC more than QuickTime is because you can set the volume to 400%.
