    My Android version is 7.0. I have been using VLC media player for the longest time. Now it simply will not work. I get a message for one second saying something like "The file at xxx cannot be played." Is there a known issue? Is there a fix? Thanks.

    have you tried to wipe cache for the player? or even wipe cache and data and then uninstall and re-install the app?

    Much as I hate to say it about the faithful Samsung Galaxy S2... the old girl has seen better days.

    • Almost 10 years old
    • 1GB RAM
    • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
    • Exynos 4210 at 1.2GHz dual core

    I very much doubt that VLC even supports the Samsung Galaxy S2 nowadays. try contacting the VLC developers and see if this is the case... videolan.android@gmail.com

    If you do decide to retire your S2... treat her with respect. ;)
