Is it possible that you selected encoding options that the decoder 
couldn't handle? That is to say it's not - might not be - that Sorenson 
isn't compatible per se, but that you have to select options which are 
compatible? This has always been an issue. There may also be issues with 
the container. You have to select a conservative profile and the right 
audio format for maximum compatibility. I would encourage you to look 
into this. Obviously, this assumes these devices have some kind of h264 
capability. Many flaming hoops to jump through...
