    What happens when you try and open then on a PC?

    Try installing a third-party app like DoubleTwist. If they stol won't play, hard reset.

    Are we talking videos taken using your cam?

    Download DoubleTwist (on your phone), pop into your gallery, click on the video, select open with DoubleTwist. Tell me what happens.

    You can try the file on another android device, however, hard reset may be in your future.

    Factory reset. Its a wipe. It will erase everything not on the memory card. You can access it from the privacy section in settings.

    I am having the same problems as the OP. I have videos I have taken with my Droid X andnow they will not playfrom my library. I also tried downloading rockplayer and it wont play with that either. These worked fine in the past but recently flashed the GB rom. Not sure if this could be the reason (I wiped multiple times before flash). I get "Error file cannot be displayed or played." Again these are videos taken with the phone.

    OP if you wipe and it fixes please let me know. If anyone else has any ideas I would appreciate it, wiping is such a dra even with Titanium.

    Note on hard reset, it's good to have your contacts on google. I lost mine with the built in backup sync app. You can also save learned words from input source to your card so your keyboard behavior stays steady. Go to a Vz store and ask a tech what you can save to your card before a reset.
