I have a couple of video clips (classical music performances) downloaded from you tube. I've used the firefox download helper to get it in 3gp format (supposedly for phones?)

When I play these different clips from the video gallery they all stop/fail at 1 minute 25 seconds. These clips play just fine with vlc on my linux laptop.

I wonder if anyone has similar issues or if someone cares to reproduce the problem independently from me.

A friend of mine sent me a 3gp today which was recorded with the Sony-Ericsson Cybershot K800i. The video was playing (due to length of it I did not see he problem that the video would stop/crash). But I did not hear any sound. 3gp is also used for mms (which will be implemented in the future). Please fix Sound for 3gp. If needed I can provide the original video file.

I haven't tested the 3gp videos, but my understanding is that they are very low quality videos for old phones. Jolla should be able to play back higher quality flv/mp4 versions of youtube videos. Although the video support seems bit temperamental, because some youtube videos I've tested work fine, but other ones don't show up in the gallery app.
