    hi i was wondering if someone can help me i have a galaxy s2 phone that i created a 40 minute video with but when i transfered it to my pc i could not watch it it plays fine on the phone just not on the pc so ive done some investigation and the issue arrises only when the file size exceeds 2gb any videos under this size work fine
    i have tried

    REAL player

    it would appear to be a limitation in file size within the codec but could do with confirmation the file information i have gathered is below both were recorded using the same resolution and both play ok on the device
    any help on this matter will be much appreciated many thanks in advanced

  4. Thanks MrHawks..
    solved it.
    1. download file manager from market i used file manager joydao
    2. locate the video on your phone press and hold the icon and select copy from the pop up list
    3. hit the phone menu button & select LAN sharing
    4. enter the ip address of your computer and then select "access"
    5. (you will need file sharing in windows turned on and have a shard folder with read and write permissions turned on)
    6. select your shared folder where you want to save your video
    7. hit the phone menu button and select paste
    so i have to go thru by another way of sending file instead of direct sending from cables?

  6. guys, my video files play ok in S2 but once i transfer to my notepad(ASUS emachine...WIN XP), i am unable to play the video.. looks like it plays for 1 frame then stops!! Even it does the same for any size of files. I tried with VLC media player 2.0.1 (downloaded yesterday).. still no luck.. Can u please shed some light.. oh just remembered the video file did same once tried to open with another desktop(XP i guess). Do u have to make any change to any settings either in phone or player to play these files in full? Thanks in advance
