    Video playback issue

    My Droid is giving me fits when it comes to playing video. Some will not play at all ("sorry, this video cannot be played"), some play sound with no video and some will play just fine.

    What am I missing?

    Which media player are you using? Act 1 (.mp4) or YXflash (.avi)?

    It might be encoded with an incompatible codec too... I'm not sure which ones the phones can use, I know they exist only because my... <ahem> Home videos were encoded with a codec that is no longer used and is a PITA to find
    HTC Rezound... Stock for now, with the Tag Home launcher...

    I'm no Droid wiz, OK?

    I am trying to play them through astro and I don't see a stand alone video player. The phone is bone stock, Android 2.1. I just assumed that there was a native video player in the phone. Perhaps I am wrong there?

    thanks for the responses, by the way.

    What type of video is it?
    You can use SUPER or DVDCatalyst to make compatible 720x480 mp4's that'd play on the Droid... and use the free NSW media player...

    Yeah...just various videos I have saved from emails and such over the years.

    It's not a huge deal but I would like to be able to play them on the phone....

    You could use the free program SUPER or DVDCatalyst Free to convert those WMVs to mp4's... should then play with no problems

    I'm having the exact same issue. Audio and no video on files that played fine on my stock and cyanogen roms. Problem is new to my Froyo rom's now.
