Is there a way to view .mov movies on Android S6?
“Hi guys, I changed my iPhone 5s to a Samsung Galaxy S6 last week and I am very pleased with my new phone. My problem is that when I try to play my iPhone 5s .mov video recordings on my new Galaxy S6, I have no luck. I installed mxplayer because everybody says it’ll work. Yes it works but the video looks like it is playing in fast forward and has no sound. Can anyone please tell me if there’s a way I could play .mov files on my new Android phone? Thanks.”
