    I need help.
    I cannot play any video on my phone. When I try to play a video this happens:
    black screen / freeze for 5 sec -> back to main menu :thinking:

    Here the videos I tried:

    1080p (1920x1080) Codec: H.264/MPEG-4 AAC (Profile: High)
    1080p (1920x1080) Codec: H.264/MPEG-4 AAC (Profile: Medium)
    1080p (1920x1080) Codec: H.264/MPEG-4 AAC (Profile: Low)

    1080p Wide screen (1920x800) Codec: H.264/MPEG-4 AAC (Profile: High)
    1080p Wide screen (1920x800) Codec: H.264/MPEG-4 AAC (Profile: Medium)
    1080p Wide screen (1920x800) Codec: H.264/MPEG-4 AAC (Profile: Low)

    same with 720p (full and wide screen, all profiles, H.264...)
    and finally with 480p (...)

    nothing at all plays

    Greetings PseudoGirl7,

    You can try moboplayer or vital player. I'm not sure if they will run on your phone or not.

    You can try handbrake to convert your vids. I've never used it , but have read that its what a lot of people use to convert videos.

    Good luck

    i just tried HandBrake and it works
    the phone only plays videos with MPEG-4 Video Codec
    the MAX resolution is 480x360 (landscape res of touchscreen)

    MoboPlayer force plays videos with H.264@480p but the video is very very low than
    and MoboPlayer also gives me a warning message before playing the file
    480p is recognized as HD by MoboPlayer :rolleyes: :thinking:

    for me HD begins at 720p!

    problem solved thanks
