    Hi
    We are developing apps for android. One recent app has links that play videos hosted on amamazon servers. We have fromated for 3gp and or mp4.

    When we run app, we get error,

    Video file cannot be played

    This happens on wifi, 3g, and 4g connections

    Samsung epic, (galaxy s)

    Do we have to intall some media server on the server perhaps? The iphone version of the app works fine.

    Download MediaInfo onto your computer. Open some of the video files in there, switch to Tree view, and copy the results here.

    First the profile should be Baseline, not Main@3.1. Also the resolution may be too much for other phones to play, it should be 800x480
