    OK, I love my Droid, but one thing that I find very annoying is the video player in the Gallery

    Just yesterday, I recorded a little video of my girl singing, and as I finished recording it, I clicked on the little thumbnail that appears on the upper right hand of the camera, and the video played perfectly.

    Today, I go to the Gallery, select the same video, and that annoying message comes up "Sorry, this video cannot be played"

    But if I go to the camera,go and select the video from that thumbnail, it plays OK

    So, what gives? Why is the video player so inconsistent?

    I've been getting this error for nearly all videos for some time (including - it seems - every Youtube video I try to play). Someone on another forum had a solution so simple I didn't believe it. Take out the battery for 10 seconds, then start back up.

    I worked!
