    Having problems with video playback on my Sony Ericsson Xperia S

    My Sony Ericsson Xperia S just started exhibiting this problem. When I take videos with the camera app, I get error messages when I try to playback those videos on the phone. If I try to playback from the Gallery, I get "unable to play video". If I try to playback from within the camera app, then nothing happens. Any ideas?

    IF you are Facing the Problem with the video playback and the player you are using in your Sony xperia Android mobile then you have to follow these steps :
    First of all you have to View or download the supporting video file in your SOny mobile.
    Then if it does not work to play then you have to must open your play store and then download applications like VLC player that supports your mobile or the Real player so that every video will play in your mobile.
    Either the video is been recorded by your camera or the file which is transferred in the mobile will be very easily played in the mobile.
    This is the easiest way that you can choose to play in your Sony Xperia mobile.

    Re: Having problems with video playback on my Sony Ericsson Xperia S

    hey friend ..

    I would like to tell you that you have to change the format of your videos in your PC first and then transfer it and play in your phone ..
    This is because of the fact that the problem you are facing in playing videos in your phone is only due to that you are trying to play unsupported formats of video ..
    Every phone has got its supported video formats that can be played in it without any problem ..
    But sometimes when we try to play unsupported video formats in the phone then this type of problem occurs i.e the videos wont play
    This is the codec problem...

    Also sometimes it happens that while transferring the videos get corrupted and hence you are having trouble in playing them in your phone ..
    Another reason can be that your memory card has got corrupted if you have saved the files into the SD card hence you are not able to view the videos .. So, if this is the reason then first format your memory card and then use it again...

    So , first check for the supported video formats of your phone and also the above problems and then try to play the video..

    hope i helped ..
    thanks
