    I recorded a video on my phone recently but cannot get this video to play at all. When I transfer the video to my computer the file says it's .3gp and 1.89 GB which makes me think something is in fact there.

    When I try to play the video on my phone I get a "Cannot play video. Sorry, this video cannot be played" message. I've recorded numerous videos in the past and they've all played just fine on both my phone and computer.

    Is there any hope to make this play somehow? This video is super important to me and I'll really be upset if I can't make it work.

    When I go to play it on my phone it doesn't work either. Do you mean a third party video player on the phone? It's just super frustrating because I've never had this problem before and I really want this video.
