By far your best bet is simply to use Apple's Quicktime Pro, exporting any movies you want in MP4 format - you'll find the E61 can play them just fine. See for example the MP4s I create as part of the Smartphones Show (http://3lib.ukonline.co.uk/sshow/):

This works fine for playing movies in Real Player, which doesnt allow you to FF or RW (what is up with that)
Hence why I bought SmartMovie, and smartmovie isnt recongnizing .MP4s ... Is it supposed to ?

Of course you can fast forward and rewind in RealPlayer - just hold down the up or down navigator keys.

Yes, FF and RW work fine.

Even my N-gage's real player allows you to do this.
