The 770 (as well as the N90) supports 3GP which is an MP4 derivative.  
The two formats are
interoperable to some extent, so MP4 files, once visible in the  
dialogs, are apparently successfully
handled by the 3GP demuxer.

As a workaround, one could extend the definition for 'video/3gpp'  
mime type to cover .mp4 extension
as well, or possibly install a new type 'video/mpeg4'.

Something along the lines of  this could be added to /usr/share/mime/ 

   <mime-type type="video/3gpp">
     <comment>3GPP media file</comment>
     <glob pattern="*.3gp"/>
     <glob pattern="*.3gpp"/>
     <osso:category name="video"/>

Note that changes won't take effect until you run "update-mime- 
database /usr/share/mime" as root.

If you opt to install a new mime type (instead of extending video/ 
3gpp), you also need to add that type to
Video player's desktop file under /usr/share/applications/hildon/
