Hi Jon,

I've recently had issues with MP4 files as well on my Sansa ClipV2.
Strangely, I was able to play them back in a simulator build (on Linux),
so they ought to be supported.

Could you please try playing back your file in a simulator?

You can find simulator builds for Windows here:

And if you're a Linux developer: It's quite easy to set up your own
build environment, see
  http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/DevelopmentGuide

It would be best if you'd log your findings in a bug-tracker entry.
