    That surprised me. I mean I know it's an Apple format, but everything uses .mp4 these days.

    It just seems like the option should be there. Most iPhone users I've known have Windows PCs. I guess people who like the iPhone interface but currently have Windows would be more likely to look at Macs the next time they upgrade, though.

    AFAIK, Windows PC's have no problem dealing with iPhone video.. But, i havn't dirtied my fingers on a Windows PC in years, so I could be wrong.

    I was thinking things like smart TVs and such sometimes play .mp4 off of thumb drives. YouTube also prefers h.264 mp4 files. Windows can play it, my point is most things other than computers prefer .mp4.

    To be clear, I'm not knocking Apple, I was just surprised is all. All corporations do stuff that doesn't make sense. Microsoft is no exception to this, they've left me scratching my head plenty of times. Namely, everything after Windows 7.

    I think apple has always preferred to use .mov but I never had a problem with it running on windows, even if I use mac I have move some .mov files to my windows and I am able to see them on Quicktime and WMP soooo yeah most things are .mp4 but .mov still works well

    Sounds like a "Windows problem" to me!
