    Have you tried playing music? Recording another video? Playing videos off youtube/internet? and does she happen to use twitter or have the official twitter app loaded on her phone?

    Download rockplayer from the market and try if videos can be played with that.

    Extremely common problem that nobody has been able to fix. I'm not sure if you're experiencing the exact same issues or not, but it sounds like it.

    My thread regarding it: http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-s/338724-video-music-failure.html

    I ask about twitter because I haven't (fingers crossed) experienced an issue since replacing the official twitter app w/ a 3rd party one (tweetcaster/tweetdeck)

    If you look at these forums, there's a lot of topics about videos, mp3s, and camera not working. None of which are actually solved. So I hope that's the issue.

    thanks gluske, my wife decided to try a different forum and found out if you delete the twitter app and then turn the phone off and back on again to reboot it, it works! her videos and everything are working again fine! some people might say, well videos played when twitter app was on when bought it but i think its actualy if you use the twitter app it happens! anyway guys thank you everyone for your suggestions it was appreciated!
