    Title is self explanatory. I've been trying to identify the correct encoding settings (which I've been unable to do) for the DROID. If it's far enough off, the stock video player just says, "sorry, can't play video" and closes. The Act 1 Video player gives a more thorough message stating something to the affect of 'The media server has stopped working. Please restart application or phone...' or something to that affect.

    After than, I can no longer download from the market. I've factory reset my phone twice now to fix the issue. Any idea on a quicker fix?

    Are you rooted or stock?

    No not rooted. Last app...not sure. I don't think it has to do with my applications. Last time this happened, I tried to uninstall the last couple apps (Camera FX?). This time I hadn't just downloaded any apps, although I did just use Camer FX. I think it has to do with the error and the shutting down of the server.
