Samsung Galaxy S :: Can't Play Videos From The Internet
Oct 29, 2010
how is it possible this hd samsung galaxy s cant play videos from the internet for example no built in flash player cant seem make divx web player even work on this phone .......what a waist of a big screen .....good job SamsonG that was me being sarcastic btw
For instance: when I click on a video on cnn.com, the phone goes through the motions of downloading it and then I get a message: This content cannot play on this device.
When I go to the YouTube app and click on any video displayed, the message is Cannot play video. Sorry, this video cannot be played. The videos that I took with my phone and are stored on my SD are playing OK.
I'm having a problem with my internet connection on my SGS. It used to lock to T-m*bile, I unlocked it lastweek then use L*bara instead cause got free internet service hehe. somehow, everytime i try to use internet service it says unable to connect to internet/ network unavailable. but I tried the simcard with another phone and it was working. some friends suggest me to re-unlock it. but i donno how to re-unlock it.
I was directed here by the Google Android Devs Group. I'm still not sure if this is the place I need to be. I've been on forum after forum and asked the same question but no one seems to know the answer or will tell me the REAL correct place to find it. I have a Samsung Moment with Android 2.1. I can not get videos that DID play on Android 1.5 to play on 2.1 now with very few exceptions. I'm not just talking about different videos with the same format, I'm talking about some of the exact same videos that did play in 1.5 will no longer play in 2.1. These are almost all AVI files. If Android doesn't support AVI natively with it's own stock media player then why or how was I able to play these videos flawlessly on 1.5? The way I always played the videos was viewing my SD card, tapping the thumbnail of the video I wanted, and it would automatically open up in the phones media player right away. Now the phone locks up and then eventually gives an error message.
I am using the dolphin browser to connect to the internet. when I watch videos IE. you tube it lags pretty bad. Is there a way to get it to play videos more smoothly? I have a 3g connection.Is this normal for android phones?
I am using Galaxy S i9000 for over a month now and have noticed that videos getting automatically deleted from the phone. This has been happening for quite sometime now, earlier thought it might be overwritten while transferring but there on always made sure that the data is copied by browsing phone as a mass storage.
I'm considering getting me one of the sexy Galaxies, but have been wondering if it is possible to play videos (of any type and quality) with soft subtitle, such as .srt, .txt, .sub, or any other subtitle that is not hard-coded on the video. Or can closed captioned m4v or mkv videos be played with soft subtitle on Galaxy? That would be great if anyone knows how to do so or those already doing so can share us the how-to.
I've had my Samsung Galaxy X for a whole of about 3 hours now, just tried out the internet on it. Awesome. loved it.Sorted my wi fi out etc Only problem is, I've turned Wi Fi off now but the 3g internet is still on and uploading and downloading when I am not even on a website. Can anyone please tell me how the heck I turn it off? I cant afford a massive bill
I've searched both my card and phone memory to try and copy some videos from it to my PC, but I can't even find which folder is storing them?! I've checked all the video/movies named folders but nothing there..

Since I updated to Froyo when the official one was released for the UK my Gallery has been almost useless, it now sorts photos based on where they were taken which I don't want and it doesn't show any new photos/videos I take, possibly because the phone saves them to the external SD card now instead of the internal one. Is there anyway to fix this? I've looked everywhere for some gallery settings but I can't find anything, to change the sorting etc.. Or can anyone recommend a half decent gallery app? I just want something that shows the recent photos I've taken...
I have a Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, with a 64GB Micro SD card. I would like to play back videos I have stored on my SD card; however none of the videoplayers I've tried will do it - they all say the file cannot be played. The videos all play fine when stored locally, so I know there is no issue with the files themselves or the transfer process of getting them onto the SD card. Currently, if I want to watch a video, I have to use the My Files app to navigate to the file on the SD card and move it to the internal storage. This works, but its clunky and not very nice. Is this a bug feature of 4.2.2, or of my handset in general?
Is there anyway to connect a PC to the web using my Galaxy's data connection? Do I understand correctly that I have to use NPS?Is it the only way? Even after downloading the latest version it still says my "Device is not supported" and I can't access that option.
Anyone know how to set up the phone to share internet via bluetooth? I've been using the Wireless AP mode which works really well, but I think the bluetooth mode will use less power.I've been able to pair the phone with my macbook, but I'm not sure what settings it needs on both sides. On the phone I'm assuming just enabling bluetooth is enough for it to be a modem, but on the macbook I need to fill out:username, password, apn and cid. I'm not sure where to find this info.Please god tell me I don't have to call Bell to get it.
I recently purchased a GTI-i9000. GPS on it is terrible and I have ready many forums with other users experiencing the same problems. I was thinking, and wanted to clear up a cloudy understanding. On my previous phone (iPhone 3G), when I was not connected to WiFi, I was still able to browse webpages etc, albeit slowly. Is that called GPRS? The form of data?
On my Galaxy, I cannot do this at all. If I am not connected to a WiFi connection, I have 0 internet. I'm just wondering if this is the cause of my dodgy GPS. Is there a setting i need to change or does the SGS not do internet if you're not connected to WiFi. I live in Australia if that helps at all.
I just got an unlocked samsung galaxy s. I have centennial but this phone was thru At&t. I cant get it to connect to internet except wifi when I am around it. I also cannot download picture messages. I have tried several apn settings and nothing has worked. I have a data plan thru centennial as well.
I will be traveling and would like to connect my Galaxy S to by Laptop to use it as a Internet connection.Galaxy S ==> Laptop (wired) ==> Internet..I've searched a bit but so far only found out how to use my phone as a Internet gateway but not the other way around. The reason is that I don't want to incur expensive roaming changes on my data plan since my laptop is connected at my office.
I have a Macbook Pro, its connected to Ethernet & I want to share the internet connection with my Samsung Galaxy S. I enabled Internet Sharing on my Mac, selected Airport under ports & provided a WEP password. On my Galaxy S, I select my macbook on the list of WiFi n/w, provide the password, but it never gets connected & there is no error msg either. Has anyone else tried this? Any ideas on why this is happening? BTW, I'm able to connect my Galaxy S to my wireless router at home.
I have a strange problem with my Galaxy S. I have unlimited mobile internet(3G), but not all Apps work. For example when I am on the mobile internet network, de standard Internet browser does not work. It just displays a white page whatever I'm trying to load.Other programs say there is no internet connection avaible or just don't respond. However there are 2 programs that d� work. Opera Mini and eBuddy can work with Wi-Fi and 3G. Other Apps like to check if it's gonna rain, or a News RSS viewer etcetera does not work.They only do with Wi-Fi.I have no clue what to search for and also no idea if it's my mobile phone or my provider(it's named 'Hi', it's dutch).
I'm a complete newbie to all things android and mobile internet so please help and humor me.Just got my galaxy s yesterday-absolutely fantastic phone, really pleased with it.Two perhaps dumb questions if anyone can help please?
1. How do you tell if you are using your wifi connection or connecting through your mobile internet?
2. Is there a way of choosing which one you want to use? Any help will be greatly appreciated thanks
I was trying to use my PC's LAN Shared Internet on my Samsung Galaxy S using bluetooth internet connection sharing. The settings are correctly provided on my laptop. However, Samsung Galaxy S's bluetooth doesn't seem to be able to recognize this. i.e., Galaxy S doesn't have a network profile, due to which it always connects to my Laptop for headset service. Is this a limitation of Galaxy S? Can't Galaxy S connect to bluetooth for network sharing services?
When I tried to download a mp3 off the internet on my Galaxy, it said that file is not supported. Is there any way to be able to download a mp3 directly to the phone without the need of transferring via the cable?
