    “unable to play videos” error with the video playback on my Galaxy S3

    When I take videos with the camera app then I got error message, I try to playback those videos on the phone. When I try to play these videos from the gallery then I get “unable to play videos.” I have good videos of my old memories. Please help me out this.

    For the Camera video problem it looks like there is software issue, Try to reboot the Device if that does not solve the problem then you have to reset the device but before doing that try the following;

    1)check the SD card for any damage because if the videos are to be stored in the SD card and when the SD card is having error it will display such an error.

    Make sure that the SD card is fine and the videos are getting stored in that else you will not be able to see any videos you have taken. Connect the card to the computer and explore the SD card.

    Hi,
    The problem with the application not able to take proper videos might be due to the fact that the Camera application might be malfunctioning. Navigate to settings and then open the "Settings" menu from the application drawer with that open the option as "Apps" there you will find an tab as "All" select that and scroll down to find the camera application there erase the data of the camera application and Force close it and reboot the phone and see if the problem persists. If the problem is still present then it might be a problem with your memory card of with the internal memory of the phone so either switch to Memory card for video storage or change to phone storage if you are using memory card and take a video if you still have the problem then you should change the memory card if the problem is with the memory or if the problem is with the phone storage then take the phone to a Authorized service center of Samsung.
    Hope this Helps.

    Well this kind of error arises due to the format. Many phones doesnt support all kinds of video formats. There are many video formats like 3gp,hd and many other. You need to convert into the format that is supported by your phone. Then you will have no problem.
