    I'm not sure if it's a bug or missing feature but I can't seem to play movies that are encoded in 5.1 sound. The Captivate will play high bitrate video fine and that is awesome, but it would be silly to expect someone to encode a movie in a high bitrate and only use a stereo track.

    Anyone else seeing this problem?

    Just to update in regards to playing media files, I tried Samsung's Allshare program and it fails to stream higher bitrate media from my NAS. I can stream low bitrate videos but that's about it. I also can't stream from my NAS using Twonky Media via the browser either.

    A little disappointed that this "media" phone with a gorgeous screen can't really handle media like the iPhone can.
