    Hi,
    I have a problem while playing video from Gallery.
    I received the Error "video format unsupported".
    The video is in mp4 format and the problem append Only with System video app.
    With this app I can play Only video maker with the smartphone.

    I have ROM 6.11.3 dev by xiaomi.eu.

    Can someone help me?

    Thanks

    AFAIK mp4 (like avi, mkv etc.) is a container for one or more audio or video streams.
    Every audio or video stream need a codec depending on its type.
    Maybe your mp4 file contains a stream which is not playable by the app because it miss the required codec.
    Some players use codecs from system, other like - I think - VLC use their own codecs.
    Try downloading mediainfo from
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/mediainfo/files/binary/
    and run it on a pc against your file to know what it contains, then you can convert the file to different formats using ffmpeg.

    Is not problem of codec.
    Il I runtastic the video from the app (locale video), the video is played successfully.
    If I run the video from the Gallery or from WhatsApp I can't play it :-(

    My problem not is to play the video... I have many apps that can play all format of video.
    I want to know if this problem is a bug of this version of miui or is only my problem.

    With my MI3 with ROM from miui.it I can play the same videos with System app without problem.

    Thanks

    Maybe they removed support mp4 from Gallery app, like it seems they did for m4a with Audio app?
