Help...video clips I take on S5 mini cannot be played

Please help
if I take a video clip on my S5 mini phone and try to play it back with the video player it says "unable to play video! Sorry this video cannot be played....
It would appear the file is corrupted....???
What is happening and what should I do to prevent this....I have not had these issues before. The video file is saved onto the SD card

ta thanks

Welcome to Android Central! SD cards can be problematic, especially on Samsung devices. The card itself might be bad. Try using a different SD card, or saving the video to Internal Storage instead.
