    I just recently noticed that I cannot play any of the video clips I have saved on my Driod.

    Used to play all with no issues.
    Now I get the following error message:

    Cannot Play Video
    Sorry, this video cannot be played

    Can someone help me figure out what happened? and get it fixed?

    Thanks

    Maybe you need an update? If you are not able to get it fixed, I would take it in.

    Try rebooting the phone. If that doesn't work if your rooted try running fix permissions in your rom settings or if not a feature of the rom you can use rommanager then reboot again. If that still doesn't work then reboot into recovery and clear cache ( you can also use cache mate from the market*rooted phones only*). If that doesn't work then back up all apps with either astro file manager or titanium backup and then do a factory data reset. If that still does not work then smash your phone with a hammer (DISCLAIMER:I am not responsible if you actually smash your phone with a hammer). Take it to verizon after unrooting if necessary.

    Let me guess, the last time the videos worked was before the Froyo update? If so, Stagefright (Android's new A/V decoder) is to blame.

    Are you rooted? If so, it can be fixed.
