    I used my new ipad to take some video to post on facebook.
    Couldn't work out how to do it so i emailed it to my computer but when i played it on windows media player, it looked like a bad acid trip.
    It plays fine on VLC media player though.
    Why would this be so?

    Edit: OK, I just worked out how to post direct from ipad to Facebook but still curious about the media player problem.

    Sounds like you have a codec missing in WMP, that's all.

    Just to add, VLC contains codecs for just about every video known to man, so don't worry about WMP.
