We have an iPhone 4 with the latest iOS (4.3). When we receive MMS text messages from certain people containing a video, the video and audio are sent as separate files - in short, either the video or audio can be viewed/heard separately, not together.

What needs to be done to correct this? Are there certain video formats that the iPhone does not play/display properly?

Your not able to change how this works, It's just how the message formatting of iOS works,If you get a video which contains truly separated audio, I suppose (provided your on a 3GS/i4) you could use iMovie to combine the two back together and play them in sequence.

Ios supports the following video formats: H.264, MPEG-4 in .mp4, .m4v, .mov
Iphones can't play 3GP files which most other phones do play.

A solution would be to ask people to send you files in one of the above formats.
