    i running out of ideas . to play 3gp files you can use RealPlayer.
    or i found this article
    How to Play 3GP 3G2 Files in Windows Media Player

    but you may have to try this from home..

    if you want to try reboot a a couple more times its worth a try...
    If you want to do a factory reboot that is also an option.

    Im sorry if i am loosing my usefulness here . sometimes its just the phone thats the problem and from the things i have been reading the phone and its software could be the problem.

    Edit:
    vandozer98, Im sorry but im drifting off to sleep its 7am and im out of suggestions tonight.
    I apologize we couldnt resolve your problem.

    Maybe ill try again tommorow/later

    Sorry I bailed for a bit. I did test a video on mine recorded on 720p and it played fine. At this point, it really sounds like the file was corrupted either in the recording or in the storage. There have been a few bad sd cards out there so that might be the issue. I would try recording a short video after a fresh reboot, if that doesn't work I would try a different sd card if you have one.

    This has happened to me quite a few times, and it seems to be because I was getting text message pop ups from handcent or hitting the home button while recording to get back to the home screen. In other words, not allowing the phone to properly go through the procedure that it need to save the file. When I record video now, I make a point to let the phone work its magic when I stop recording.
    Everything that I have tried to do to recover video files that don't play has not worked.
    My advice is to make sure that the phone is through saving the file after it records video before attempting to get it to do anything else.
    Hopefully someone smarter than me will figure something out.

    Great idea! Thanks for chipping in on this one. I tested both on my DX and the file worked fine on the stock player, but that also might have something to do with my ROM as well.

    If the files can't be played on a PC I'm really starting to think that it might be an issue with the SD card or the phone its self. It's prob factory reset time. And if that doesn't work, then I would take it in to Verizon. I know one of my friends had an issue with his SD card and they sent him a new one and he hasn't had any issues since. Sorry we couldn't help more.

    Sounds like it is a combination of sd card and user error. I do recall pushing home button shortly after recording a video or 2. And not being able to open files on win7 has me thinking I never will. I would like to thank all of you who have helped me out. Thanks again

    Sorry we couldn't get this working for you. I would try testing your phone with a few additional videos when you can. If you continue to have issues I would contact or take your phone to Verizon and get a replacement for your SD card or phone. Best of luck to you.

    Just want to chime in and say I have had this same issue with a rooted DX.

    I have had a DX for about 3 months now. It seems pretty random though and I cannot reproduce it. It only started happening maybe a month ago?

    It seems that random videos the phone takes are unreadable anywhere. The phone cant open them and the computer can't either. So it seems somehow the file is getting corrupted in the save process.

    I would think maybe a bad SD card, but no other files give me any problems.

    I had a new thought on this one. I wonder if it's an issue with the class of SD cards that was being used not being able to handle the amount of data being recorded with the 720p. Just a thought. I never used the SD card that came with my DX cause I had one that I had bought for my BB that I used. Just a thought cause I haven't had the same issues.

    That could be it, if the SD card isn't fast enough it could be corrupting the file when it is trying to save it.

    The card in my DX doesn't state a class (#) on it, but it has 16GB and then a (2) beside it. Maybe that means it is a class 2 card?

    I will look at the card in my wife's Fascinate and see if I can tell if it is a faster class and try that out.

    edit: I looked at some new microSD cards, the one in my DX is definately a class 2 - which appears to be the slowest class. I'm sure this is my problem. I wonder if Verizon or Motorola would do anything about it if I called and complained?

    I've also been wondering if those of you that are having issues are recording in 720p. Has anyone had any issues with a lower setting?

    I have only tried 720p video. I will change my settings to SD video and see if it has the same corrupt file problem.

    I never really investigated the SD card class issue I posted about above, but I am on a leaked Gingerbread build and have NEVER had this problem since going to Gingerbread.

    We went on vacation 2 weeks ago and I probably shot 25+ 720p videos with my phone and none failed. That would have never happened on Froyo. I would say the failure rate for HD video was at least 30% on Froyo.

    This makes me assume it is a software issue.

    I am running Gingerbread on a Droid x.

    Version 2.3.4 on Verizon. Took me a while to

    figure it out, but when making a video in 720P,

    If the scene changes from normal (as an indoor scene)

    to a very bright scene, the video will freeze up on

    playback, at the point where the bright scene is to

    be rendered.


    If I start at a bright scene and go to a dim interior,

    the playback has been normal. It is just going from a normal

    or low light area to a brightly lit scene, and the video freezes

    up.

    Sometimes the entire phone becomes non functional, and I have to

    reboot.

    Thanks Android Central for the forum.
