I have a few media files downloaded directly from Youtube in 1080p, and my N8 cannot play them at all. Of course, I know they will be downsampled to nHD on the phone screen, and to 720p over HDMI, but I would like to avoid having to convert my content, if possible.
The audio plays, but the video is blank, and there is a "broken video" icon at the top of the screen.
Any ideas on how I can get these to play? (Or, where the best place to report bugs to Nokia is...)
