@kookie66 

It will be something like " Share it with people that got the link"

You have to share the file and give us the link to access to it.
I try to translate in English but not sure of exact terms

As I stated before, it plays fine on PC wth VLC (or any other player), through the USB port on my tv, or Bluray player.

But, on the tablet or cell phone, it starts playing fine and a few minutes later, it won't play.

I am confused.  I just don't understand why this is happening.  They played fine on my old Samsung Tab A tablet.

It doesn't always play with the built in video player either.

Do you think you can figure out why this is happening?

I really appreciate the help you have given me.

Hmmm... 

 

Just to clarify: @Cassidy007 , when you play a video that @kookie66 has sent you, it only plays in your tablet's stock video player but will not play at all in the VLC app on your tablet?

 

Also, I found this oddity about granting storage permission or uninstalling updates on Google+: https://blog.fonepaw.com/cant-play-videos-android.html

It is my tablet we are talking about.

One of the problems is that, when I download a video onto the tablet, sometimes it plays right at first, but after an hour or a day, it won't play, again.

What is the probelm?

I never had this kind of problem with my Galaxy Tab A, so why am Ihaving such a problem with this Galaxy Tab S4?

It's definitely a weird one. I'm assuming it's happening in Safe Mode too?

 

If so - and it's only a guess - but it may be some kind of DRM issue in relation to the newer firmware version for the media playback for some files. (Codecs and the like shouldn't be the problem if the files are being converted and/or using VLC; and if other media of the same file types are playing fine on the device.)

 

I know that both you @kookie66 and @Cassidy007 are based in North America, but if you're able, it may be worth sending an error report with log files via the Members app  immediately after it happens so your local software teams can more closely analyse the issue. Or perhaps visit your nearest Samsung Support centre to see what diagnostic info they can get.
