    I have had lots of problems with stock playing. I think it's just that stock player does not support as many formats as what rock player has. I use rock player all the time now unless it's on line streaming video then by defaults goes to default player.

    Have you noticed any certain format which has more issues? For example there is avi mpeg mpeg4 etc. Try converting to a different format.
