View Full Version : Why can't these 2nd init roms play videos taken while on previous roms

Regardless of whether the previous rom was 2nd init, the videos taken while on that rom do not work on newly flashed roms that are 2nd init like cyanogen and liquid smoo. I first thought it was something to do with video format, until I proved that theory wrong by converting video files from .3gp to the file type created by 2nd init video, .mp4, and came out with the same "video cannot be played or displayed" error. Would like some theories and explanations. Thanks

.3gp is moto's camera's software proprietary file format. Use a video player like MoboPlayer from the Market, that should play them.

I had no problems using another video player or converting to another format
