    You will need to convert/encode the files that don't play to a format supported by the player.

    Note that the 'problem" is that mp4 is just a container. It can contain files using multiple codecs. So you need to know which codecs are supported and the specs (ie: resolution, bitrate...and audio specs) for each codec.
