Galaxy S6 Edge :: Video Playback On Windows Computer Not Correct Orientation
Dec 18, 2015
My phone has no problems recording video and the auto rotate function seems to work fine as well. However, if I take a video in portrait mode on my phone, transfer it to my windows 7 computer and play it, it plays in landscape mode (sideways). I've tried VLC player and windows media player and they both play portrait taken videos in landscape.
When I try to play videos from my S6 on my windows 10 computer they start out running smooth but then get jerky. They play fine on the phone. When this computer was running Windows 7 I had no problem viewing videos from my Galaxy S3.
I have a C902 mobile phone. I have a video saved on my computer which I have converted to a 3GP file and an MP4 file. I copy and paste the video into the "video" folder on my phone using the USB cable. But then the video does not appear on my phone. What am I doing wrong? I have managed to save the video on my phone now in 3GP format. It shows as a thumbnail, gives the correct length etc. But when I want to play it, it says "playback failed".
Today i've purchased an Iphone 3gs, and this is my first time using an Apple Product. I downloaded itunes and figured out how to a very painful method of trasferring my audio music files to the phone, but i still do not know how to transfer music videos?
Starting last week I noticed when I watch a video that my controls are gone when I have playback. I found out that the phone locks the controls away so I have to press the power button to unlock but my question is how do I turn off the lock all together. It's really starting to annoy me. And save the why don't you install a 3rd party comments.
When trying to play back a video recorded on my phone, I get the error message "Unable to play video. File has incorrect data." I am trying to play it back with the stock video player. I have downloaded the MX player, and it will play back there, but not with the stock player. How to get it to play on the stock player?
Whenever I playback videos on my S5, with headphones on, the audio cuts out after a few minutes, but the video continue to play.
Like the volume automatically mutes itself randomly. And I would have to restart whatever media app I'm using and start over from where I left off. This only happens when I use headphones and I have tried several different ones. I usually use the in-ear samsung ones that came with the phone or my sony ones. Both are standard headphones. I don't have any wireless or bluetooth headphones. It never happens on loudspeaker.
It happens with media on my phone, sd card, whether I use WIFI, 4G , 3G or Flight Mode. It also happens when the phone is charging or using the battery.
I have done a soft reset, factory reset, and also removed every 3rd party media player app.
It doesn't happen when I play games or when I listen to music on the Music App.
Phone Model: SM G901F Apps affected: MX Player, VLC Player, Soundcloud, Youtube, Video Player.
This has been annoying me for the past several weeks, I've had a Galaxy Ace, Ace 2 and Mini 2, and never had this problem before. My brother has an S5 Mini, and we have the same 32GB sd model, and he has no problems with his phone. So it's not the memory card. I watch a lot of movies and stream a lot of tv shows, when I'm home and when I commute.
I have a Galaxy S6 edge on T-Mobile and juts noticed this morning that whenever I attempt to record a video I get a warning stating "The video codec is currently being used by other applications..."
Is it possible to determine which application has it in use? I've closed all running applications which didn't resolve the problem. Restarted the phone without starting any other applications before the camera and that failed. I'm not seeing any information about this issue in the couple of searches I've done so far but wonder if it's an isolated issue or something common.
Short of a Factory Reset, which I'm not fully opposed to doing, is there a potential solution?
Does anyone know the effective battery life time when playing 720p h.264 mkv files with 100% screen luminosity and almost all the other features off (wifi, bluetooth, internet, etc)? Also, is there support for subtitles? I am debating on what to buy, the Galaxy S or the IPhone 4. I need 3.5 hours of video playback between charges. I want to eliminate the video conversion step, so if the Galaxy S can eliminate it, that would be perfect.
I've done everything from resetting my computer, uninstalling and re installing everything, downloaded the drivers off of the Samsung website, tried a bunch of cords other than my own that came with the phone and debugging my phone, I've about had it with trying to figure out why it wont work.. all i want to do is download my music file on to my phone.
I've been noticing this happening for awhile now.. for some reason my app windows will close randomly- no warnings, no errors, i tap the Recents key and apps that i had open are now gone.
There doesn't seem to be any pattern or consistency to this, i'll just eventually notice after doing things in other apps, that when i tap the Recents key, one (or more) have closed- in some cases i've had multiple apps open and they've all closed- ie, tap the Recents key and it's blank.
For example, just recently i had the Facebook app open (along with a few others), and when i went back to open it from the Recents key, it was gone. i've also noticed the same thing happen with the Instagram app, but i believe there are others..
So I'm assuming this isn't supposed to happen? my only thought was maybe apps are crashing when too much stuff is open at once, thought it's a pretty high end phone, and i typically only have 3-4 apps open at the same time, at most.. or maybe apps are closed automatically if they're open for too long with no activity? i can say that in some of these cases the apps had been open for hours or in some cases days by the time i noticed they were closed..
So I took a video of me shooting a paper ball and slightly missing a trash can from my Galaxy S6 using the slow motion feature. I took that video and transferred it to my computer to edit it and put Chariots of Fire as the background music. I saved that file, keeping the exact same file type (MP4) and transferred it back to my phone. However, now when I view it on my phone, the video is the fraction of the size even though the dimensions still say 1280 x 720. When I press the full screen button, it enlarges but only vertically. I've tried converting it to H.624 and I'm normally pretty good at figuring this stuff out but I've hit a wall.
Just to be more specific, the phones charges, but if I want to use it as media device, I'm told you have to unlock it, fine, but when I finally get to see my storage on my PC screen, after a couple seconds it disconnects, meaning I don't see it anymore, anywhere on my PC, but phone still charges.
Couple of seconds afterwards, back up again..as you imagine, backing up photos/videos is impossible, I don't have the time to transfer huge amount of data before I'm prompt with a message telling me it has been cancelling due to not finding the file anymore..
I just got a new samsung s6 edge previously an apple user and really annoyed by this phone, all I hear from friends is apple is so crap well I've never had an issue with iphones for me they worked how they were meant to work, now I have the s6 edge and problem after problem doing the most basic of things, the most annoying of which is photos.
I'm trying to drag photos from the dcim folder of the phone to my windows 8.1 desktop, obviously connected by usb I have the drivers installed etc have used both the mtp and ptp options in phone, neither option works each time I drag to desktop all the windows close screen turns grey like explorer crashes and the desktop refreshes, also done copy and paste does the same thing.
I don't want to use software as only way to do it which is slow and laborious is like google photos etc. surely if its treated as a storage device just copy and drag, really annoyed as it should be so simple.
I recorded by son's school concert with my Stock verizon S6 edge video camera. and realized that i could zoom in on the video to make my son look closer. My question is , is there any way to save the zoomed in video. I want to share it but i would rather have the video i share to by close ups on my son..
I have a new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge which is using android lollipop 5.0.2 and suffer from the following problems.
Video problem: I could not watch any video in my device. In Facebook application and got this error “failed to play video an unknown error has occurred". YouTube app. got this error "there was a problem while playing touch to retry". Gallery video even if it has been recorded by the camera earlier.
Audio problem: I’m not able to play any music, got this error “sorry, the player does not support this type of audio file." and this file is the "Over the Horizon" song which came with the device. When i go to the settings to change the ringtone I am not hearing any sound for all them. I did not put the phone in silent mode but no sound for any received calls, notifications or SMS.
I tried everything i know to solve this issue, I done all of the following but it does not works: Clear the cache memory. Uninstall all the application from the device. Factory reset. Update software.
The only thing work with me is to restart the device but it will not solve the problem permanently, it will happen again after few hours.
When I try to send multiple photos with my new s6 edge it will only load one of the pics to be sent via txt. When I try to send a video it says it has to resize video so I allow it to do so. But then when I send the video it is half the length and very blurry.
I have galaxy s5 and the photos and videos i take with camera stored in extrnal sd card. but when i wanted to transfer these to my computer the computer does not see the video files in that sd card folder, and it only sees the picture files. how can i also see and transfer video files to my computer?
