What is up with Windows Mobile 5 Video?

So, Microsoft made an Operating System for this phone..

The standard Windows video recording software on the phone lets you take small videos by way of the camera on the back. By default it stores these videos in this format..

Unfortunately, this format cannot be viewed out of the box by this..

Having tried this..

and this..

it was moderately amusing to find out that the only software on my computer that could play the video with no problem at all was this..

Of all the digital video formats available, why in the world would Microsoft have ever released a mobile product that took videos which could not play on their own desktop operating system out of the box?

Oh – If only there was a format Microsoft had access to that worked on their desktop and could even be played by Windows Media Player by default …oh wait…
