MOV video decoding supported on FireTV ?

Does FireTV support decoding MOV files (videos that was recorded on an iPhone) ? Here is an error log on FireTV when I am playing such a stream in my Android App using VideoView/MediaPlayer classes. 10-13 12:40:50.736: E/MediaPlayer(6642): Uri is http://192.168.1.119/test_movie.MOV 10-13 12:40:50.736: D/MediaPlayer(6642): Couldn't open file on client side, trying server side 10-13 12:40:50.966: E/MM_OSAL(277): ValidateAACFile failed 10-13 12:40:51.167: E/MM_OSAL(277): FileSource::FileSource 10-13 12:40:51.167: E/MM_OSAL(277): MM_Thread_CreateEx::set thread Prio to 0 10-13 12:40:51.167: E/MM_OSAL(277): MM_Thread_CreateEx::thread 0x410f8a98 created with stack 1048576 bytes 10-13 12:40:51.167: E/MM_OSAL(277): FileSource::FileSource m_bEveryThingOK 1 10-13 12:40:51.167: E/MM_OSAL(277): MM_File_Create File Name /data/mmosal_logmask.cfg , Mode 0 10-13 12:40:51.167: E/MM_OSAL(277): MM_File_Create failed .Efs Error No -1 , File Name /data/mmosal_logmask.cfg , Mode 0 10-13 12:40:51.167: I/NuCachedSource2(277): new range: offset= 258413864 10-13 12:40:51.187: V/AudioFlinger(277): releasing 37 from 952 10-13 12:40:51.187: V/AudioFlinger(277): decremented refcount to 0 10-13 12:40:51.187: V/AudioFlinger(277): purging stale effects 10-13 12:40:51.187: V/AudioFlinger(277): remove track (4098) and delete from mixer 10-13 12:40:51.187: V/AudioFlinger(277): PlaybackThread::Track destructor 10-13 12:40:51.187: V/AudioFlinger(277): removeClient_l() pid 952, tid 736, calling tid 277 10-13 12:40:51.297: I/NuCachedSource2(277): ERROR_END_OF_STREAM 10-13 12:40:51.317: I/NuCachedSource2(277): new range: offset= 0 10-13 12:40:51.397: I/ChromiumHTTPDataSource(277): Reconnecting... 10-13 12:40:51.547: I/NuCachedSource2(277): retrying a previously failed read succeeded. 10-13 12:40:51.557: I/NuCachedSource2(277): new range: offset= 258413864 10-13 12:40:51.657: I/NuCachedSource2(277): ERROR_END_OF_STREAM 10-13 12:40:51.677: I/NuCachedSource2(277): new range: offset= 0 10-13 12:40:51.767: I/ChromiumHTTPDataSource(277): Reconnecting... 10-13 12:40:51.777: I/NuCachedSource2(277): retrying a previously failed read succeeded. 10-13 12:40:52.057: I/NuCachedSource2(277): new range: offset= 258413864 10-13 12:40:52.148: I/NuCachedSource2(277): ERROR_END_OF_STREAM 10-13 12:40:52.178: E/MediaPlayer(6642): error (1, -2147483648) 10-13 12:40:52.178: E/MediaPlayer(6642): Error (1,-2147483648) 10-13 12:40:52.178: D/VideoView(6642): Error: 1,-2147483648
