    The vids I make on my Samsung phone play fine on the phone itself but they won't play on my pc. I've transferred them via usb cable, which doesn't work, tried lots of ways; then I tried emailing them to myself as attachments from my phone and opening them on my pc, that didn't work either. I have spent about 2 hours with some fixing thing that I'm not even sure is straight up. Can anyone help?

    What Video player are you using on your] PC? VLC is a good one. https://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you recording in HEVC format? That format helps save space, but it might not be playable on all other devices: https://www.sammobile.com/news/galax...0by%20default.
