HTC Desire :: Playing Windows Media Video Files On Desire

Jun 2, 2010

I'm new to the Android OS having been a Symbian (2nd phone is a Nokia N97) and Windows Mobile user previously. My question regards a copy of Family Guy (Something, Something, Something, Dark Side) which I purchased yesterday. The standard DVD also comes with a digital copy on the DVD which, when inserted into the drive brings up a choice of transferring the file to my computer to be copied over to my Desire as either a iTunes file or a Windows Media Video (WMV).Ideally I want to avoid the iTunes route as currently I have no use for that program on my system so I would like to be able to use the WMV version. When I copied the file to my Desire, it didn't play and the phone didn't seem to recognise it. Can anyone please give me advice on how to play a WMV on my Desire?

Media :: Playing MP4s On Desire

May 21, 2010

Liking the phone but the video playback is driving me nuts. I transfer Mp4s to the SD card, a new folder called Video and the phone sees them but only plays the audio. These Mp4s all work on my iPod Touch so is there something not right about them for Android? ie do they need reconverting?

They all have .mp4 as extensions and I have tried having the new video file on it's own on the SD card as well as trying it in the DCIM folder as suggested on another forum. Cheers for any help as I'm thinking this is all too much of a faff and I will have to get the iPhone. Shame as the HTC deal with Orange is very cheap.

HTC Desire :: Lock The Screen Whilst Playing Media

Jun 12, 2010

I have a brand new desire and was streaming a file from a webpage in bed last night, but the screen doesn't go completely dark, nor does it 'lock' - you can accidentally touch the screen and interfere with the playback. If I try to lock the phone it kills playback. I would really like to be able to lock the screen whilst media is still playing through the headphones.

HTC Desire :: Playing 640x360 H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Video

Apr 5, 2010

Just got my new desire. Love it. Trying to watch some video on it. The videos came from get_iplayer (if that matters) and are 640x360 H.264/MPEG-4 AVC. I've tried several players, Meridian, mVideoPlayer, PlaysVideo, Media Player, built in player and I get audio but no video. Is it the video codec or are the dimensions too great and need to be scaled down a bit.

HTC Desire :: Playing Music Or Watching Video Using Headphones

Jul 12, 2010

When playing music or watching video using the headphones that came with it, there is a lot of crackling and hissing. If you go back to the home screen, there is a high pitched whistling sound (almost as if you've placed a microphone next to a speaker and are getting feedback as a result.) I can't seem to get any FM radio stations either. I've tried three different sets of headphones as well as the set bundled with the Desire and all have the same problem. Is this a known issue or should I phone O2 and get it replaced.

HTC Desire :: Transfer MP3s And Video Across In Windows Explorer

I have a Desire and I'm trying to transfer MP3s and video across in Windows Explorer. However I can only seem to get around 100MB of files across then I get the error message:

Cannot read from the source file or disk

I'm using a 16Gb card that worked fine in my G1. Windows reports that there is over 14Gb free. I've tried formatting the card via the phone and using other software to transfer the files eg Doubletwist but I still get the same problems.

HTC Desire :: Certain Files - Directories Visible In File Manager - Not Windows XP

Nov 20, 2010

I successfully partitioned EXT3/FAT32, rooted, and flashed Defrost.

Now a strange thing is occurring. I installed an off market app, but I can only see its folder in Android's File Manager, not in Windows XP.

This is going to cause me serious problems because I need to transfer some files into that folder from my PC.

How can I access this App's folder in Win XP?

Media :: No Volume When Playing Videos On Windows 7

May 26, 2010

I have HTC Desire with Android 2.1 and Windows 7 Premium 32bit. I have created some 3GP videos on the HTC and can play these successfully. When I transfer the file to Windows 7 the playback via Windows Media play doesn't have any sound. Same files playback with volume via iTunes. I'd really like to use these files with Windows Media Player. Is this some sort of codec issue? Why are such task seemingly simple tasks made so difficult?

HTC Desire :: Don't Put Audio Files In Media Player

Jul 23, 2010

I'm still trying to get to grips with the folder/filing system of the Desire's SD card. I have yet to put any of my own MP3's onto the phone but have put on a few short audio clips which I created at work. These were on the phone mainly so I could transport them home but I also occasionally play them from the phone. However I don't want them cropping up amongst music in the music player app/widget, but it seems no matter where I put them on the SD card they appear. The only exception is if I put them in media => ringtones which isn't ideal. Are there any other places where i can put them where they won't be found by the media player?

Android :: Playing (M3U Files) With Media Player

Jan 8, 2010

I'm trying to play a playlist I get using the MediaStore provider. However, when I try playing a playlist nothing happens. Can a MediaPlayer play a playlist (m3u file) and do I need to set the first track to play? This is my test code in the onCreate() method:

Uri uri = MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI;
if(uri == null) { Log.e("Uri = null");
} String[] projection = new String[] { MediaStore.Audio.Playlists._ID,
MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.NAME, MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.DATA };
Cursor c = managedQuery(uri, projection, null, null, null);
if(c == null) { Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),
R.string.alarm_tone_picker_error, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
return; } if(!c.moveToFirst()) { c.close();
Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), R.string.alarm_tone_picker_no_music,
Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show(); return; } c.moveToFirst(); try {
MediaPlayer player = new MediaPlayer(); player.setDataSource(c.getString(2));
player.start(); } catch(Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(); }
I have turned on every volume stream.

Media :: Playing A Video Transferred From PC To HTC Hero

Jan 8, 2010

I need to know if there is a way for watching .WMV videos on the HTC Hero.

I already know that it will play MPEG-4 videos without a problem (you can use the RealPlayer Video Downloader to download HQ/HD videos from places like Youtube and it automatically saves them to MPEG-4 format).

However, I want to transfer some files like music videos onto my HTC Hero and having tried several times, using the RealPlayer Converter, to convert the .mpg files to .wmv, I can't watch them on the Hero.

However, I recently looked at one of the threads (I think on a different forum) and he said that he could watch videos in WMV format using 750kbps on resolution 480x320. But RealPlayer only allows for 768kbps and resolution as 480p HD as the nearest possible (which was the setting I ordinarily chose).

The other strange thing is that when I go onto the Albums part of the phone to see if I can view any videos, it shows a thumbnail image of the music video (a preview image of the video) and when I play it, I can hear the music, but the video itself fails to appear.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Playing Wmv Media Files

Sep 13, 2010

This time I wanted to play some media , a WMV file, from FOXDIGITALCOPY, and it seems Xperia doesnt support it - atleast that's what the FOXDIGITALCOPY software tells me when I tried to sync up the media from my PC.

Also, this file doesnt even show up on the mediascape screen though I copied into the videos folder where other videos are saved.

I tried to play a more smaller and simpler file - the wildlife HD video sample from Windows - which is again a WMV file.

This time, Xperia tries to play it, but the video only comes up as stills while the audio plays as normal.

Media :: Video File Formats And Codecs Playing

Sep 25, 2010

This is 2010. I refuse to believe that you can only play movies/video files that have .avi, .mp4, .mpg, .mkv file formats by converting. I remember Sony was slow on the uptake when they started the media server streaming which I use on a daily basis at home now.Is there a program that will decode the files as you stream them? Any codecs to install on the Droid X? I have thousands of video files and "converting" is time consuming not to mention creating two video files instead of one to play on devices. Converting is BS and whoever thought "Let's just have the users convert the video files" needs to take a long walk off a short pier.

i'm big into freestyling. i have over 1500 instrumentals on my phone.i can't figure out how to play them and record myself (either audio or video) at the same time.i figure i'm either gonna have to download a new music player that won't close or a video/audio recorder that won't close the "Music" player that came with my evo.and before anyone goes tryin to be smart, i realize that even if i was able to accomplish such an action the quality would probably be really low due to speaker and mic being so close.my intent is more of a "on the fly lyric composition" rather than a " put myself on youtube to show everyone how awesome i am"

General :: Video / Media Player That Continues Playing When Minimized

Aug 21, 2012

I am new to using Android. I am wondering if there is any video (MP4) player that would continue playing the video even when I use the home button to switch to other apps (e.g. check my email etc.) I have a few documentaries/discussions to watch and sometimes minimize the video player to check other information on my phone and the video stops.

Any Video players that continue playing when minimized. I know that the Meridian Player continues playing when the screen is switched off, but it stops if you press the home button.

(I use a Galaxy Nexus with Jelly Bean.)

Media :: HTC Desire - Media Player Doesn't Work

Sep 12, 2010

I have just got a HTC desire and like many people would like to be able to get rid of my iPod all together and have just my phone. The problem I'm having is that the media player on the HTC desire doesn't work nearly as well as iTunes. I have several issues that would needed to be resolved and wanted to know if anyone had a solution to any of them

1) Audio books, I have many of these on my iTunes and on an iPod they are displayed in a separate folder and are removed from shuffles, not so on the HTC, solution?

2) Podcasts, Again i subscribe to many podcasts on my iTunes and wanted to know if there was any way of adding them to my HTC automatically or having them download automatically (Despite this being very annoying and clogging up my hard drive with duplicated podcasts)

3)Playlists I am currently using iTunes agent to sync from my iTunes but it means that I cannot sync playlists that i can then play on my phone. (I can sync playlists just not then play them on their own once they are on my phone)
