    Wow thats different; all my mp4 stuff plays just fine. You just using the stock video player for playback? Do the videos play OK on your PC just fine? Also are these like DVD's you converted? Im just trying to figure this out; all additional info is helpful

    Had the same issue this week but someone posted on my thread to use VLC player and it worked. Not the best video quality but it worked.

    I'm trying to view the hd videos I recorded with my fascinate on my pc. All I get is audio in an mp4 format.

    I will try the vlc player. So what good is recording hd videos if wecan't play them back in hd quality?

    Can these mp4s be uploaded to youtube or do the files need to be converted?

    All I know is that Youtube supports mp4. So it may be as simple as just clicking on the upload icon on youtube.

    My bad I misunderstood you there. Yeah I just tried this out myself. I took a short 3 second video from my SF camera and uploaded to you tube via the stock app. It went fine. No conversion needed. However, note that the camera seems to record stuff as 3GPP but you can upload that straight to youtube and it plays ok enough

    So having discovered that Im wondering how you got them into mp4 format. Did you convert the vids you shot with your camera. I cannot find in settings an option to record as mp4 on the camera/camcorder. Perhaps it was your converter that borked your vids?

    I got mine as mp4 but it could be the resolution setting which I have set to 1280x720.

    So true. I also never use the camera. I mean I bought it launch day Sept 9. So what 40+ days ago and I have taken only 15 pics with it.:( I suppose I like my Panasonic camera better, which I do

    I am having a similar problem. I used dropbox to get the video I took to my computer, but my pc is only playing back audio, not video. This is about a minute worth of HD quality video. How do I get it to youtube? It's too large to send, I don't have wifi, and can't figure out how to play it on my pc so I am not sure that I should try uploading to youtube and just hoping for the best.
