It is not a format issue in the generic case... it is called DRM more or less.
You can only play those files on the original hardware, they are
encrypted with a key that technically cannot be taken out of the chip.
Rumors say, manufacturers can move the key from one chip to another,
if models are the same.

I had to deal with such cases from data recovery perspective, there
are many unique (meta)encryption schemes. Unless it is your personal
video (wedding, etc.), find a torrent and re-download it - many times
