This android 2.3 G2X is supposed to play MPEG-4 or H.264 streamiong video, but I can't play videos from Vimeo that are that format. It gives me an error message saying my phone is not compatibile. I have downloaded the latest Flash player too, but no help. I installed the Vimeo app and this G2X still will not play any of their MPEG-4 videos.
Are you using the stock rom. I went to the site using Browser and it played fine on my G2x.
Yes, I have done nothing to the phone other then install a few app's. I installed the app from Vimeo which has a player and even that would not play their videos. I tested on a web site that streamed a mpeg4 test video and it worked fine in both Google and Firefox browsers. Something about the encoding that my phone cant decode and the host site says I dont have flash player or no H.264 support. I have verified flash plaer 11 but can't verify that H.264 works
It may be time for a factory reset. Be aware that this will wipe out your apps and settings. Go to Settings/Privacy/Factory data reset. Once done reboot the phone. Log back into your phone with your Google information. Before you install any app open the browser and go to Vimeo and see if it will work. If not maybe one of the mods here can help you out.
Before you go wiping your phone what color is your Notification bar? If it is white you are still on Android 2.2 (Froyo)
Also are connected to the 4G network or WiFi when you are trying to play these videos?
Try to use a different browser, don't use the default
