What formats are supported for video?
I'm really not sure if this a bug or not, but I cannot get the media player to play anything... I've tried half the formats that VLC can export and nothing works so far. All I get is a message that 'this format is not supported'

Yes, there are some issues with video playback nowadays, for example https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/1092
What device are you using and which UT channel are you running?

You can also try rebooting. Sometimes that error is persistent until a reboot.
This is on a Nexus 5 on RC channel updates with latest release updated this morning.
I also have a 1+1 on stable (daily driver) that I will test too.
I have tried .mp4 .avi .h264 .mkv, all with the same message. I've also tried different formats within the wrappers. I have a bit more time to test today, but thus far a reboot changed nothing

There are some issues with the default media player on Nexus 5 but UTMedia works for me.
UTMedia doesn't open files at all.
I tried all of the same files on my 1+1 but didn't have time to try other formats. So far nothing will play on either device. I'm going to search for some reference video files for testing this evening.

@Giiba - something strange might be going on with those files because my OnePlus One can play mp4 with no problems with the core app Media Player - and can play webm using the UTmedia app. Perhaps you can post a public download link to those files so we can test them out as well?

I found some h264 reference files and those play on my 1+1 but not my nexus 5. Seems reference spec is .mp4 wrapper, mpeg4/mov encoding, 48khz aac audio, and that works.
Armed with that I was able to convert and play the files. Weird thing is the files are the same spec from above but in a .mkv wrapper, but that seems to be unsupported.
I'm dreaming of VLC for Android ported to UT at this point
