Suddenly can no longer play mp4 videos
« on: July 15, 2014, 04:06:45 PM »
Hi folks.  I got a Nexus 10 for MYSELF for Xmas and loved it immediately. I was copying mp4 videos from my computer and taking them with me on the road to watch in all their glory. I was also downloading some movies and TV shows directly from the internet. It was great. Then about a month ago the Nexus stopped playing them. I have tried time and time again since then to transfer or download mp4 files. They transfer just fine,  but when I try to play them I get a message saying that  they must be mp4 files  in order to play. When I look online, all I find are ads for software to CONVERT other files to mp4. The files I want to play are already mp4. They played just fine until a month or so ago.  I did not change anything that I know of to cause this to happen.  My thinking is that perhaps there was an automatic update that triggered something??? Is that possible?

Anyway, this is--was--the #1 reason I got this tablet over all the other choices--so I could enjoy movies and videos at the highest resolution. Now I can't watch anything.  I don't think I should have to buy a third party converter to get back what was originally a normal function.  What do I need to do to make this play my mp4s as it did before? Are there some particular settings I can check to see if something has been changed. I have searched and tried everything I can think of.

Please help.  :-[(This is probably something really dumb).
