    I need help playing a large mp4 video file I recorded with the app RecMe on a generation 2 fire stick. Main problem is that I don’t have access to a PC. I’ve tried VLC and a couple other players and conversion apps but nothing has worked. The exact message is “Media error: sorry, cannot play this video.” I only have the fire stick, a very old android, and an iPad mini 2 to work with.

    Based on the error message, there is a "media error". ie: the media which the file is on is faulty or the file wasn't properly written to the media.
