    This Is what I get when I try to play any video. I thought it might just be youtube but then tried several other sites and I get the same message.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    So far, the fascinate has been a disappointment. If I can't play videos I'll seriously be considering a different phone.

    Please help

    I get that on my phone (Fascinate, and Ipod touch 2nd gen) rarely sometimes and what i come to find out if u just try to view the video a 2nd time it usally goes through.. To me it sounds like more of video formatting issue with in the video itself not the phone. Just out of curiosity what else done u like about the FAS besides 2.2???

    I've Tried the same video over and over and still nothing. I'm not sure if this is a related issue but now my music player isn't working.

    As far as other issues that I've had, where do I start. My battery lasts about an hour of moderate usage before its down to about 40%.
    Download speed sucks. When the video player does work, I won't bother trying to watch anything longer than 5 minutes or you'll be here for 30 minutes trying to watch a short clip.

    I downloaded handscent because I get an sms but when I go to open it it says downloading only it never downloads.
    Not to mention the fact that I constantly have to proof read swype because half of the words are usually wrong.

    Alot of small issues but they all add up to one giant pain in the ass

    Dude it sounds like you have a defective phone and you need a replacement, interms of dl speeds i somewhat have the same issue. The speeds are a network issue Verizon's 3g is a creeper so yea Swype is tricky it takes practice. Also if your having lag issues try lancher pro it seems to help with that.

    I've had my fascinate since Oct 2010. I've recently had problems like fire13. I can't play any video's including the ones I recorded with my phone. And now half of my music can't play. For music it says, "Sorry, the player doesn't support this type of audio file." Well, it used to play all my music. And I used to be able to watch all videos from whatever site, or the ones I've recorded. Now, none. The only thing I've done is installed an aCCleaner to clean out the cache. So, did I delete something I wasn't supposed to? Do I need to delete all players and download them again? I'm actually surprised I haven't found an answer to this by just googling it. Any help will do. But I don't think I have a defective phone.

    Edit: Well, I turned off my phone and back on and now everything seems ok. I usually don't turn off my phone since I don't have a home phone. But is it recomended to turn it off once in a while?

    “Sorry, this video cannot be played

    videos uploaded from .3gp file won’t play but .avi, mp4, .wmv does play

    [FONT=&quot]Youtube recommend uploading .3gp[/FONT]
