    Default Black screen when playing video on 5800XM

    I experience quite often, that when I restart playing a video after it's been paused and I've exited the videoplayer, then the screen is black. There is sound, but no picture and only when I skip forward or backward, the picture returns.

    Is this a known issue?

    Is there anything I can do about it other than skipping forwards or backwards to get the picture back? Because that is quite annoying.

    That seems like quite a hard resolution for a somewhat small problem.
    Why such a harsh method?

    @Funkmeizter,

    Convert your videos aiming them to be as simple as possible.
    Try Format Factory for example. Most of the videos created using the standard 5800XM preset should work without much of an issue.

    Already using Format Factory 2.20. Have been trying the standard 5800XM preset, and other settings.

    Could it be influenced by fps or bitrate of the video?

    It only happens when I go back to a paused video after, for example, reading or sending an SMS.

    @Funkmeizter,
    Those conversion settings are pretty standard and simple.
    Things you can do:
    * Keep an eye on memory management and remove apps that you don't really need. If RAM is low, it can cause issues when switching among apps and video playback (tip: use RAMblow to clan memory).
    * Sync your data and multimedia files with PC and format the memory card at least twice a year.
    * If you have a chance to change the memory card (for example upgrade to 16GB), go for a HQ card.

    Thanks...
    I'll try to keep an eye on memory usage, perhaps use a RAM cleaner.
    The phone and memory card is only from november last year, so hopefully it doesn't need a format already
    However, I've ordered a new 16 GB Sandisk memory card. Perhaps it will make a difference since I've heard the one that comes with the phone is trash.

    In continuation of my original question, is there any way you can make sure that the video starts where it was paused when you return to it?
    Sometimes it does, other times it starts playing back from the beginning again

    a typical problem for buffering videos. The phones way to handle memory management might be the cause. The thing that your experiencing is normal

    I play videos only via Video Center (not directly via RealPlayer).
    Select Last watched and it should always continue from the moment you stopped it last time.

    Might be this is happening due to other application install..not sure though.

    Some application conflict with each other.

    Do let me know if this issue resolves.
