    Hey guys,
    I just downloaded ss 5.4 and I've got one issue that I can't resolved. I can't get videos from my gallery or the browser to play, I get an error that says can not play back video. Any recommendations on how to go about fixing this?
    Thanks!

    If you record a new video, will it play? Will the vids play on your PC?

    If your talking about wma or wmv videos, you need an app from the market to play those. For some reason, the stock player for gingerbread no longer has the built in codecs to play them. Any other video format should be playable though without issues.
