    My phone doesnt play any videos in MMS. I use handcent. BBv1. Smoked glass theme. setcpu. it hasnt played any videos for awhile, even with different ROMs. Ive read things like removing (000)-000-000 parentheses, to makin sure stock mms is in the /app folder.

    The Mms.apk you can find in the OP here should fix your problem (even using Handcent, you need a working copy of Mms.apk). [Themed ROM] NexBeast V1.0 - Blazing Fast! - Android Forums

    I put that mms.apk file and followed this command:
    su
    sysrw
    busybox cp /sdcard/Mms.apk /system/app/
    sysro
    sync

    but still doesnt play the video in the message

    Well, I'm all out of suggestions, then, because it worked for me and was confirmed working by a number of folks in that thread.

    No, I used Root Explorer:

    1. Copy the Mms.apk and paste it into /system/app (replace the Mms.apk that's already there) -- you'll need to press the button on the top right that says "Mount R/W".

    2. Long-press on the newly pasted Mms.apk file and select Permissions.

    3. Change the permissions to User: Read - Write, Group: Read, Others: Read

    4. When you click Okay, you should see "rw-r--r--" in the fine print under the apk name.

    5. Click the Mount R/O button, then reboot.

    I have the same issue; I was unable to receive Mms messages but I followed the directions here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/32682-update-new-settings-stock-messaging-app-17.html and was able to receive messages. However I'm still unable to play videos from Mms. I used the file from here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/32682-update-new-settings-stock-messaging-app.html

    What is wrong? Any ideas?
