    QuickTime is already on your iPad.

    As to specific apps, compatible QT attachments can be played

     

    1) Directly in the Mail app

    2) In the Photos app if saved from the Mail app.

    3) In GoodReader or similar third-party apps if saved from the Mail app.

    I have been sent a wmv attachment (QuickTime) in a mail message and I cannot open it by clicking on it.

    WMV is not a "QT compatible attachmet" as far as the iPad is concerned. Any audio and video compression format for which the originators system is configured can be placed in an MOV file container. However, placing content for which your system or iPad is not configured in an MOV file container does not make it QT compatible for your system or iPad. Open the email on a system configured for WMV playback. (E.g., a Mac system with QT X and/or QT 7 installed along with an appropriate Flip4Mac codec.) The attachment can then be played or save and, if necessary, converted to an iPad compatible format (assuming you have the required components available.) You could also look for a third-party iPad app having its own built-in WMV player and somplethod of accessing the attachment, but I don't know of any from personal experience.

     

     

    If I have to save it from mail and the open it in photo's how do I do that?

    As previously stated, the file must be a "QT compatible attachment." If it is, the action list will contan a "Save" option.

     

     

    I also would like to know how to view a 3gp video that I took with my android phone (Samsung) and sent to my IPad via Dropbox.

    I believe 3GP is supported by the GoodReader appp. You can go to their web site and check the list of audio and video media formats supported in that player.
