we have a user who has both a sony xperia smartphone and tablet. They have attached this device to a windows 7 laptop, and viewed a video on the device via the laptop (windows 7 enterprise). I don't know which OS sony xperia devices typically run, or what if you downloaded a video from the internet would the likely format be, and what would the likely default application that would play the video? I am presuming the video was downloaded and saved to the phone, but could possibly be streamed on the internet service on the phone but somehow viewed on the laptop (is this possible?)
