    When I get an e-mail with a video sent from another android phone,it starts to download but then all of the sudden it says can't play video.if I go to website,starts to play video and all the sudden stops and says can't play video.am I doing something wrong? Do I need to download a app? I got flash player,YouTubeanything else.you would think if it comes from a android phone you would think I could play it.this is bullcrap. Thanks

    try long pressing the file and download it to your sd card first, then play it from there.

    ok i tried the long press and nothing happened. on the email it shows i have a download and to the right there is a tap that says preview so i touch it and it starts but tells me cant download. now i would think if the guy is looking at it on his incredible and sends it to me,mine should be able to show it. this is not the only time,i just wait till i get home and look at it on the computer. it happens enough that its really getting old. just a thought,could it be the browser?? im using the stock one??
