How can I play my iPhone SE’s .mov videos on Samsung S8?
“Hello everyone, I changed my old iPhone SE to a new Samsung Galaxy S8 about half a month ago. I’m very pleased with it. But today I have an issue when trying to play my old iPhone’s .mov videos on S8. My new phone seems doesn’t like .mov files at all. Does Samsung S8 support .mov files? How can I play my iPhone SE’s .mov videos on Samsung S8? I couldn’t figure out a way, can anyone kindly suggest a solution? Thanks.”

I use MX Player. I’ve yet to find something it can’t play (except Dolby related files do to licensing), and it allows for volume, brightness, and scrolling functions from swiping on screen.

Give MX Player Pro a shot. Not sure if it will play old iPhone SE’s .mov videos but for me it has played almost everything I throw at it. If this still won’t work, then I would recommend converting MOV files to Samsung S8 preferred MP4 format. Here’s a guide displaying how to do the conversion.
