Default "Sorry, Video Cannot be Played"

There's this problem I've always been encountering, everytime I put a video on my SD card, and try to play it on my device, the pop-up box that says "Sorry, this video..." shows up. The video's i put are in .mp4 format. There's this instance that I had someone bluetooth me a video, and it worked. But after I edited the video (added bleeps to censored words), and put it back to my phone, the pop-up box came again. HELP

Is there a required resolution for the default player in order to play videos? A friend of mine can play videos downloaded from YouTube and converted to .mp4 and plays smoothly on her Galaxy Y.

try using kies.. it can convert any video files to a video format that suits to galaxy y inbuilt player... so you dont have to install a video player from the market..

maybe when you friend downloads videos from you-tube and then they use a converter that converts the videos to mp4 but mp4 that's compatible to samsung.
I use a converter that not only converts the videos to mp4 but mp4 that play on my phone . It's the only converter i found that works , i tried android converters ( that convert the video to android compatible format ) but I found the samsung convertor does a better job and the videos play better. I use the software on my pc then just bluetooth it to my phone , i don't think it take alot of effort.
But I do agree with everyone else MX player is only a small app and doesn't take up alot of storage and really you need it because the built in media player is abit rubbish. I wouldn't say installing it is alot effort go to the play store find it & click install 'simplesss'

This issue drives me nuts!

However, I am now investigating apps from 'Samsung Apps' (not google play store) which 'appear' to promise a solution.

I had the same problem. try taking out your battery and putting it back in. That did the trick for me

Galaxy Note 2 running Android Version 4.1.1. Installed a 64GB Microsd card. Copied several video over to phone form Windows 7 computer. Note 2 converts it to it's own format before adding to sd card. Some video will play just fine while other cause this message to pop up "Cannot play video Sorry, this video cannot be played" What is up with this? Has anyone been able to resolve this issue on the Galaxy Android phones? I keep seeing try MX Player!! I tried that and still have the same issues!!!
