You may need to install a different video player app from the market.  My guess is that Apple would not allow Google to include the codec for quicktime natively within android.  I did a quick search of the market and found a couple apps that claimed to play any format video, including .mov, so that would probably be your best bet.

Whoever told you that the xoom could do anything the iPad can do is an idiot. That is the same as telling you that a PC does everything that a Mac does.

For a list of compatible video formats see http://developer.android.com/guide/appendix/media-formats.html#core

As others have already mentioned, there may be apps that will help, but if you want an iPad, you should buy an iPad. They are really about the same price.

In theory computer can do what any other can.  All that matters is the development support.  The problems lies with licenses if something does or not :smileyhappy:

@Tidbits conceptually I agree. Unfortunately base on current licensing standards and legal issues the concepts don't mesh well with reality 😄

There are currently things that an iPad can do that a Xoom can't. There are things that a Xoom can do that an iPad can't, and there are things that both can do, sometimes with varying levels of effort or success.

In today's world if you want to do everything that a Mac or iPad can do, you purchase hardware from apple.

Anyone who is selling a Xoom based on the fact that it can do everything an iPad can do is misrepresenting the product.
