    Hi Ztruker,
    I'm unsure of extension,
    Videos and photo's (photo's are viewable),were taken on an i phone 4 and emailed to me,the photos are JPEG.
    From my windows live email inbox, I save them in My Documents, and changed their name to say # 1 video...#2 video etc etc. I have since checked them all ( 50 odd vids ) and some are actually working.. kind regards

    It is possible that they got corrupted somehow.

    I agree with bro67, install the great video software VLC, it will allow you to watch any videos that you have stored.

    VideoLAN - Download official VLC media player for Windows

    To see what the file extensions are, open Control Panel then click on File Explorer Options.
    Click on the View tab.
    Set like so:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	FileExplorerOptions.jpg 
Views:	1 
Size:	268.3 KB 
ID:	84145

    Now when you look at any file you will see the full path, filename.ext. The .ext is what I'm interested in for the ones that don't work.

    a) Show hidden files and folders
    b) unticked the next 3 boxes
    c) apply /ok

    C:\Users\Ken\Desktop\Documents\ 2\MOVIE 96.eml ..........This a movie that DOES WORK
