Nokia :: 5800 XM / Video Playing For Ten Minutes Only
Jun 10, 2010
Video for about ten mins then screen freezes but audio continues, does it with dfferent videos that work fine on laptop.its really winding me up. had no problems with my old 5320, but this thing has been a nightmare. using an 8gb micro sd card that is empty except for 2x 1 hour long videos, both of which have this problem. please help before the phone gets slammed into a wall!
Since upgrading to firmware40.0.005 (custom version 40.0.005.224.09) videos get stuck after a few minutes, even knowing the sound still plays.I have made some research and spotted people complaining of that issue after upgrading to that firmware but it was a few months back, and surely Nokia wouldn't have text me last week to let me know about a firmware update if the problems with it havent been resolved.Any help would be much appreciated as I am using my phone to watch video a lot as it normally does the trick to keep my hyper active toddler quiet while out and about.Even a firmware downgrade would be accpetable, the videos being so important to avoid the little one destroying places (it was a god sent in A&E)
I have the problem that when I am playing any type of online video when i reach 24 minutes, the screen freezes but the sound keep running, and I tryed deleting cookies and buffer and all these things, and I also reseted the phone.
i have a problem with video playing. i put some video from my pc via nokia pc suite and convert it to my n97. iit`s playing only few seconds and then the video stops but sound is still playing. i tried put the video without converting in mp4 formate but it`s the same. if i try to play some downloaded video from ovi or some carptured video it plays with no problems. i`ve already tried to reinstall my frimeware but it didn`t solve the problem...video : http://www.Internet.com/watch?v=ebhub4qetys
Here I wish to post the problems I have been experiencing after I bought Nokia 5800, maybe, someone even has a magical solution for any of them.I own it since last year's November and I've spent more time re-inserting the battery and restarting it than actually using it, so I guess I sort of regret buying this smart piece of **bleep**.
So here's the list.. (any help, tips and fixes highly appreciated. Thank you!) The video recorder often spoils the video with lags (which are file-written).An incoming call often cannot be picked up (nothing happens, it just rings. no key response)
Often the envelope symbol for new messages remains even if all messages read.The alarm clock has failed to wake me up 3 times because of the phone hanging up, and 2 more times just because of not ringing. (This is the worst part because I can't rely on this phone. What if I'm taking an important exam tomorrow? Hanging alarm clock is not an excuse, so I'm going back to the 20th century with a green-light alarm clock besides my bed, lol.)The screen rotation is so bad. I takes 5 seconds to turn the screen and often it gets confused whether to turn right or left.
If I install a new theme and set it as default (even if it's in Phone Memory), the chance of any of these bugs occuring multiplies twice.Often starting the menu or dialler pad causes the phone to hang up and nothing happens, can't even turn it off with the button. I have to reinsert the battery.The web browser often disappears without warning. A crash I guess. This **bleep** me off.The e-mail client causes problems when I set up a mailbox. What's the point of it if I can still use e-mail after uninstalling that Nokia E-mail afterwards. weird...Accessing Settings is risky, because it often hangs up and does nothing..
The media player once was unable to get rid of already deleted files. FoRtUnAtElY I found a fix (was i supposed to do that? No!).Once I couldn't access the installed application list, no matter what. Had to do a hard reset.And many more of these Sadly I knew what to expect when I was about to buy it, because I had experience with Symbian phones. In terms of reliability and satisfaction they haven't changed a bit since the first ones.
It's sad that the Nokia 5800 in spite of having a huge screen and an awesome resolution doesn't play movies in .avi format. Although you can convert the videos to another supported format, this is really not the solution. This is because of two reasons:
1. AVI files are the most common to find.
2. They are small/compact in size when compared to mpeg4.
I tried installing divx but clearly Nokia 5800 is not one of the supported models for this software. The divx player opens on the phone but you really cant see any controls, so it is basically as good as being non-functional. I have read about some ways to make the divx player work on 5800, but none of them sound convincing.
Is there any player out in the market that can help you play .avi files on Nokia 5800? Or are there any codecs for the phone like the K-lite codec for PCs to make avi files playable?There has to be some way!
I cannot play .mp4 videos on my new Nokia 5800 I have tried using OVI and mass storage connections. Some files will play but most will not, I have checked everything ie codec, res. frame rate etc it all seems OK. I have looked at the files on the memory card and they all match the pre-installed flies, cannot understand? Please help
I bought my mini just 10 days back and today I thought of playing some videos. To my surprise whenever I try playing a video it says something like. "playing partial video .....and only shows a black screen with sound. Not ony it happens with stored videos that it came with, even the new videos taken from its own camera behaves same way. No video only sound. Is anything wrong with my firmware or soething I'm having v10.0.20. I chose this phone for its multimedia capabilities
I am unable to play Windows Media DRM files with Nokia Belle. This feature did work perfectly and without any issue on Symbian Anna SP1 that I was using. This time around I get no picture, just frames and garbled screen. The DRM license is valid, I did re-copy the files to Nokia N8 again since the DRM license was not preserved when I did backup my Nokia N8 before the update to Nokia Belle. There are no issues playing non-DRM files.I already regret upgrading to Nokia Belle due to the technical and user interface issue it already has (why are there two clocks on the main screen ?).I wish that I could downgrade securely back to Symbian Anna.
I am getting memory full error while playing movie..... it plays for abt 5 minutes & then the error message pops up and the application shuts down.....I have checked C:, D: & E: & they have enough free space
I am having trouble displaying SkySports video on my TV in widescreen/16:9. I am using the HDMI connection to my LCD HD TV. It displays everything full screen but when playing video from the web it displays in 4:3. I have managed to get it to display in 16:9 but I have not got a clue how I did it.
I have a BB 9650 with O/S 5..0.0.975.Main issue is that the voice and video of a video file are not in sync. The video plays slower than the voice. I believe that it is true for all video files. They were all loaded via BB Desktop Manager and all the files have the same extensions (MP4). They play fine on my computer.don't tell me to load O/S 6.0. That OS does has so many bugs that it is useless. I have loaded it twice over the course of 6 or 7 months and both times it simply fails to function properly.
When I try to play a youtub video (or any video from a website e.g. from FB) it loads and plays for 2 seconds then closes and I get told my memory is full and to close down some apps. But usually the only app open is my internet browser (Opera Mobile).
I got my nokia 5800XM on oct 2009.Videos and pictures in the memory card get disappeared or getting corrupted.Because of this I lost all my valuable photos and videos, I will not be able to get back all those moments again. I really hate this phone because of this problem.I did a reset of the phone then also I had the same problem last week.I want to know whether this problem is because of the memory card or firmware. My music files and other things in the memory card are not affected, only the pictures and videos are getting corrupted.
i turn on my nokia 5800. i can play all videos on the internet and on my phone at the minute.then whenever i go to the camera i can take one picture but when i press the back button it just shows me a black screen an i cant take photos anymore, also whenever i switch to video mode it also just shows me a black screen.whenever this problem occurs i can no longer watch any videos on my phone or watch any Internet videos as i just get audio and yet again the black screen. ive just tried a soft reset and no luck.only way to fix this until i access the camera again is to turn of my phone and turn it back on but this only fixes the problem until i go on camera.anyone have a solution to this problem or had this problem before?
I've been able to set a streaming solution through VLC to my nokia device and can stream netTV, movies, DVD discs, webcam from my personal PC. Through the tests, i've found that the maximum resolution is width=352, height=288 which is 11:9 aspect ratio. Of course i can set 16:9 ratio which again has the limitation of the width=352. Every pixel above 352 makes the nokia response in "Unable to play video clip".So obviously there is some limitation in the resolutions through live streams. When i play a video from the Memory Card, 640*360 is supported without a problem.The problem is, that i have access to several streams , which are live TVs and i can watch only those, that are below 352 pixels wide. Those that are in resolution 448*336 don't play, although the format and the codecs of the stream are the same as with the 352*288.So, is there a way , that i can remove these limitations, or at least allow the Real Player to play streaming links with higher than 352 pxls width?
Is there any way of utilizing the front camera on 5800 XM for video chat, like with web camera on PC, using Skype or similar application? I know Nimbuzz allows chat, but no video chat, as far as I'm aware of it's capabilities. Is there any other application capable of utilizing the front camera for described purpose?
After updating to firmware version 40, I have a freezing video problem.When I play video file (.mp4), it starts playing as always but after a while image freezes but sound continues playing. No way forwarding video, the freezed image is always there but sound plays normally.I have Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, firmware version 40.2.005.263.04.Everything else is working correctly in the phone after update to 40 firmware.Is it a problem that could be solved?
My Xperia Z3 has been absolutely perfect, however it recently has started having issues with video playback stuttering every few minutes. It's like just a small delay that's happening every time I watch a video. It happens regardless of the app, whether YouTube, video unlimited, Google play movies etc. It is not buffering and I've tried different networks and I'm confident that it is not a connection issue. I did a full factory reset and have around 25 go of internal storage free and still experiencing it.
I've noticed that 4K video recording seems to be capped at approximately 8 minutes. I've had 2 separate videos stop recording at this time. Is there a way to bypass it? I have plenty of space on my 64GB 6P, so it'd be great to take advantage of all that space. Is is a processor or heat related issue?
this is an unlocked unit from verizon now being used with at&t.when i surf the net thru wi-fi, the embedded video in the website (i.e. yahoo news) would not play. same with Internet, no video would play. the screen would go black and display a video error message.
i know about flash not being supported but isn't there any option at all to play web videos?all my mpeg4 video files saved in the micro sd card, they all play ok.
2k Video Demo. Why does display dim when playing the demo 2k video? Also awesome screen but i noticed on some apps like instagram or fb depending on some peopes picture quality this screen is not forgiving as it enhances the bad qualit of other users pictures . instagram and fb would look better on my note 3 ..
