My wife and I both purchased Infuse 4Gs on day one and have both experienced the media problem you are describing. The issue affects all video and audio media on the device. For instance, when the issue starts, even the youtube app will no longer be able to play videos.
Sure enough, I removed the official twitter app from both phones and we have now been going on two days with not single hiccup. Before, I would have to restart my phone 3-4 times day when trying to play any type of media. I have switched to Twidroyd for my twitter use and it has been rock solid.

For those asking, as you can see from the responses above, it appears to be only the official Twitter app. The third-party apps seem to be fine.
By the way, this is not limited to the Infuse. I actually have a Captivate. It appears to affect Samsung phones in general. I don't know why.

Re: Music/Video files can't play
I just uninstalled the official Twitter app. I sure hope it works. I was considering returning my Charge because of this issue. I'm missing call all the time because of this. And it does seem to be isolated to Samsung phones, my wife's Incredible 2 doesn't have this problem. Plus I've never encountered anything like this on my Nexus One.
Of note: The official twitter app does install a notification sound onto the phone. Maybe that file, or the location or method in which it installs (or something related) is at the root of the issue. If uninstalling the Twitter app doesn't help, I'm going to look into other apps that install sounds to the device.
Don't know, but if I can't resolve this issue before my return window closes, I'mma have to exchange this phone. Samsung just doesn't have a good enough reputation for standing behind their products to be left on the hook with a phone that doesn't ring reliably.
But I'm glad all you helpful folks are here to diagnose these things.

Re: Music/Video files can't play
I don't have the Twitter app and I'm still having the problem. Sorry to say, that isn't the fix.
Music files won't play in the factory music app, music won't play as a ringtone or alarm so I'm missing calls and alarms.
Taking the battery out and putting it back in fixes the problem for a few days.

So, I was experiencing this problem with my samsung infuse 4g, I went into the google play store and downloaded an app called MX Player... Almost no configuration needed and I was on my way watching all of my videos with sound.. I know we shoudlnt have to take this route just to make use of our expensive *** phones, but it works and is a quick fix... Hope it works for you all! Good luck!
