MP4's won't play though the picture folder but will play when I click on it directly.

    I just received an MP4 video that plays really well on my Hero. But it is not visible in the photo gallery of my phone. It's grayed out. When I go into my SD card with a file manager and click on it the movie will play perfectly but it won't play though the photo gallery manager. Any idea's ??

    My real issue is that I have to go into a file manager to find the file and play it instead of using a widget to call up a program that will play it. There is obviously something in the phone that can handle the MP4 format and I just need to know what program to use..............

    Thanks for your help............

    Could also be caused by one of the apps you uninstalled, since you are rooted now you should your questions in the rooted section

    Well when she rooted she deleted a bunch of apps and maybe she deleted something for the image in the gallery, MP4 should be showing up as an image in her gallery
