successful dowloaded mp4 file not recogniced

I have downloaded some video podcasts from http://media.gamereactor.dk/gadgets.xml
and some other places. The problem is that when I try to watch the video I'm prompted:
"not sure how to handle this enclosure type it doesn't look like supported audio or video"

the file name is: gadgets_creative_zen.MP4
All the files in this podcast does the same thing and are all downloaded in version 338
I have many other mp4 files which plays very well in DoggCatcher.
When I play the my files in other Video Players like "Video Player" they play like all other mp4 video files.

Is this an issue any knows of?
What can I do to fix is?

Thanks for a nice app ;)

Caps

It's very likely that android is not interpreting the media as video because the extension is in all caps - "MP4". I'll take a look, there should be a way around this.

Fix in new version

Update to 357, should be working now.

Thanks for pointing it out.

Video not recognized...while playing it?

One bizarre thing that has happened to me (I'm not sure if it was while watching Cranky Geeks or perhaps Happy Tree Friends) is, the video starts playing, but when you touch the screen to see the playback controls you get the "video type not supported" message (or something to the like, it might be "Unsupported video format" or something). The weird thing is that the video is actually playing.

Not recognized

This error is coming straight from the android media player. I don't think we can do anything here. I'll watch the release notes for the next firmware upgrade, it may be addressed there.
