    Just got my new Ascend g300 and so far very pleased.
    I have just put a small MP4 file on the micro sd card and the phone shows the file in gallery,BUT when I try to play I get a message saying ...'Sorry this video cannot be played'
    My wife's galaxy y plays the file perfectly. Both phones using gingerbread.
    Any idea what media player the Galaxy Y uses?
    What is wrong?
    Thanks for any help.

    Have you tried an alternative video player? I use MX Video player and have yet to find a video format it can't play on any of my devices.

    Downloaded and it plays the file. o.k., not perfect but watchable.
    Thanks again.
