I'm trying to play back .mp4 videos that have chapters embedded in them. They play fine on desktop players like VLC, and on my iPod, but I can't select/choose/jump to these chapter markers on Android. What am I missing?

    What video player are you using? If it's one that came with your phone, you'll also need to tell us what phone you have.

    VLC is available at Google Play.

It's likely because the player app you are using is not aware of the embedded chapters. I recommend searching Google Play Store for video player apps that support this feature.

A quick Google search points to Simple Cinema and XBMC (not on Google Play). I have not tried these personally, but this should start you off in the right direction.


Try to use VLC for Android. :)
