    "Video Cannot Be Played" ???

    Since going to Sapphire 1.0 I have noticed this issue. Video runs for about 20-30 seconds, shows it loaded way past that, but then just stops with a window stating "Video Cannot Be Played" (or something close to that). Been bugging me for a while, did a quick search here and don't see much.


    Any ideas?

    I can get YouTube to work but if anyone posts a video to Facebook or sends me a video, I can hear it but no pictures play. Anyone got any ideas??? Its the same on hubby's phone as well.

    Are we sure this is a ROM specific bug?

    For me it only started when I flashed 1.0 (on both mine and hubby's phone). Prior to that they were working just fine.

    Not sure if I noticed this on YouTube or not...I don't watch too much of those, this is on various other videos on the web I have seen. The last video was off of a gaming site for DC Universe Online.

    The video format is obviously OK, as it plays and loads. And, after some research, I did find some similar issues with video in older posts whereby you can click on the video again and it will play....so possibly a download/queue issue. Sometimes I have to click 4 or 5 times to get it to continue playing, but even that usually fails.

    Almost any video I watch has this problem, and don't recall seeing this before. I will try and capture the exact error message and post here, as others have stated slightly different error message, on other threads here.

    After a few weeks of this, finally decided to post....

    I've had this problem as soon as I upgraded to FRG01b (Before I even rooted). Video starts to play then stops & error message. Video worked fine before upgrade. Other videos seems to work fine. I was wondering if it has something to do with frame rates. Haven't tried switching rates...yet.

    I have this issue with mp4 vids, i never had an issue until recently. I am using UD5 i was on UD7 thinking it was the upgrade however the issue exists in UD5. I tried installing various types of video players to no avail. I have a vid of my son taking his first steps and i can't view it on my phone. I get a lot of droid doesn't comments. I know this has worked before...not sure the issue.

    I've had this problem playing video through the YouTube app. Tried a couple of different videos, so pretty sure it is affecting all YouTube video for me. Didn't try it on Wi-Fi or using HD though, so still need to do some testing. The same YouTube videos played fine in Flash though...
