    ^^what he said. I use it all the time and it plays everything.
    VLC for Mobile by VideoLAN

    Also, I used handbrake (on Windows) before and that works well.

    iPhone supports mp4 video. There are many online apps can do the video conversion for you, such as zamzar, Acethinker Video Converter, mediaconverter, etc. They are totally free, and you don't have to download or install anything.
