Video format for mobile

I asked this before, looking for the best format for video files on both Android and iOS. Colin 
suggested H.264 as the codec, and MP4 as the file format. I have a video with those specs but 
it won't play in the LC player, and the Mac wants to open it with QuickTime. VLC will play it.

Get Info shows the codec as H.264, AAC. The file extension is mp4. Is AAC the problem (that's 
the audio format, right?) What should it be?

I haven't tried it on mobile yet, but if it needs QT I'm pretty sure it won't work.
