    Hello friend,

    The video you are trying to play might not be supported by the default video player.
    There are hundreds of third party video playing apps available in the android market with which you can play the video.
    But out of them all, I would suggest you to use MX Player. It can play almost any video format you throw in it. There are also many useful features and the video playback options are excellent. you can also play HD videos but they may not give you the HD quality due to restriction of screen pixels.
    You can down MX Player here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mxtech.videoplayer.ad&hl=en
    But don't try very large files or files with 1080p resolution as they might not run properly and cause crashes.
    It you don't like this player you can also try MoboPlayer and mvideo player.

    Hope it helps,
    Regards!

    The .mp4 formats are very unique formats and normal ordinary players will not run these files with out special codec installed for the version. The easiest way though is to Install vlc player from Google play, the VLC player will play any formats in your Device.

    Certain Music players wont play mp4 files, So its better read the description about the Player well before installing or purchasing from Google Store. Install players which are capable of playing any mobile formats such as players like quick time, VLC Media player, Etc..

    These players are capable of playing all the different versions of Mobile Videos. Good Luck with your Music Files.

    Hello ,
    some mp4 have codec errors and may not work with default player of your device . But you can still run them by downloading apps available on the android market . I would suggest you to go with Arc media because besides playing mp4 it plays other format too .
    hope that helps . Thanks

    Dear,
    Here you have to check the resolution of your mp4 song.
    if you are trying to play HD songs of mp4 format , it definately wont work.
    some kind of music players are not going to play some videos.
    Download a music player called MX player from market. It suppprt
    most of the formats.

    Re: MP4 videos not working in Samsung Galaxy Ace

    Make sure you have converted the MP4 file in 320 x 480 resolution...

    Make the video into parts if you have a large video file to make sure it doesn't suffer a video and audio sync problem...



    Also Try this video player---> MX Player--- link

    Re: MP4 videos not working in Samsung Galaxy Ace

    Hey, i will suggest you to use a Format conversion software..
    Cause mobile devices are very specific about the presets and video/audio codecs..

    so just because you have mp4 file, doesn't mean it would run fine..

    Try using "Format factory".. it has pre-defined codec for conversion to many of standard mobile devices..
    It works fine for me all the time..

    you can download it here..

    http://www.formatoz.com/download.html

    enjoy..

    Re: MP4 videos not working in Samsung Galaxy Ace

    Hi friend,
    This is very easy to solve it.In this case first of all you will delete all the MP4 video from your mobile phone.Then you will download your favorite video through internet.After that you will split your video by ultra video spliter and then you will convert your video in MPEG-4 movie and 3GP movie by any video converter.Next you will keep your convertible video in your phone's memory card and watch it.You can get your converter through internet and ultra video spliter also.This is the solution.

    First, you can convert your PC compatible video on mp 4 format that resolution set on your mobile.
    And that video compatible with your mobile.
    First check your mobile mp4 compatible or not.
    if your mobile not play mp4 video
    then download your mobile compatible video player...
    like...
    • MX player
    • VLC player
    • Real player
    And try Avi format of video, if mp4 not working.

    Thanks
