I'd suggest performing a reset or software repair using Xperia Companion, you'll need to backup your data first.

Welcome to the community,
I'm sorry to hear about this issue, however. I am having some trouble understanding what video player you are referring to, is this related to Videos taken with the camera, or do you mean you cannot play videos online?
I am sorry for this inconvenience.
Please let us know.

I am experiancing the same issue. videos taken from the phone as well as downloaded video from my GoPro Hero 4 does not play. File format is .mp4. Already tried running in safe mode but still the same issue. My girlfriend is using an Experia Z and she is experiencing this too.
Let us know what to do.
Thanks in advance.

I had the same problem with my phone and all I did was to restart the phone 📱 and it worked fine.

Same issue with my X Compact. Videos won't play in Instagram or even the videos I took with the stock Camera app.
Issue still persists in 2018. Why is your software so buggy Sony? Will have to shop around for my next phone.
