WAS it recorded on th phone? If so it will be 3gp

HTC Video supported formats:

* Playback:.3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .wmv
* Recording:.3gp

VLC will play it and just about anything else as well

The newer versions of Nero will play them.

Thanks guys I got it playing on VLC, however the video has been taken sideways is there a way in VLC to rotate it?

I will go back and look to see if I can find it,but thought someone here may know.
