2- When did you start having problems playing MP4 videos?

3- Are you able to play streaming videos from any website (Youtube and others)?

4- What software version is installed in your ThunderBolt?

5- What troubleshooting steps have you attempted to resolve the issue?

Are you sure the file is mp4 not Flash because usually rge mp4 files dont stream to the device they usually have to donwload to play file, flash has been the only files that streamed directly.


Check and make sure you have the most recent version of Flash installed..
