    I have uploaded MP4 and WMV videos into skydrive via PC (files are both viewable on PC). I am able to locate and identify them on the skydrive from Lumia920 but unable to play the video files.

    Is there an app or something i can do to view these saved files? Is it the format or WP8 not able to do so

    Same here. I though it was because they were video files from an iPhone. Is it just a skydrive issue?

    looks like you have to go through the skydrive app not through the group .. for some reason that works .. you would think that they would be linked

    The only way I could get my videos to play was to tap and hold the video. Click share and copy the link to clipboard. Then email myself the link. Then it allows me to click the link and play it. SkyDrive app used to work with these same videos.

    Try this:

    Go to skydrive.com. Find the folder that you're storing the video files in, right click on it and select Properties. On the right hand side under Information, find where it says 'Folder Type'. If it says Documents, click on change and select Pictures. After it gets all synced up you should be able to play the video right from the skydrive app on your phone.

    Mine was already set to Pictures. Still no luck in playing the video I upload from the phone. I have the same problem if I email the video I took on the Lumia 920 to myself or my wife who has the Lumia 920. After downloading the attachment it cannot play it. Friends with an iPhone on the other hand can play the shared skydrive video or the email attachment. Embarrassing...
