I assume you mean H.264 when you say MPG?

In the last 24 hours, I have surfed the web on four different devices:

 - IBM Thinkpad laptop running Ubuntu
 - Sony Ericsson K300i mobile phone
 - Nintento Wii games console
 - OLPC XO laptop

Opera runs on all of them (Opera Mini on K300i). However, none of them
can play back H.264 natively. The SE K300i has a video player that
accepts .3GP files, but only with H.263 video content, AFAIK.
