I had this problem over the weekend. I went to a carnival and took a bunch of videos. I came home and noticed they were all quiet. I think it's related to the bug where the voice commands occassionally don't work.
If you use the headphone jack, the phone will sometimes mute sound for voice commands and I guess recording video. I think it's assuming the headphones are still in and you've got a mic on there. You can reboot your phone and the problem will go away.
Hopefully this gets fixed in the NoDo or Pre-NoDo update...

Yeah, same issues here.
It seems like the Mic in general will **** out....for instance, when I do voice search, it won't do anything, and I've had the video problems before too.
Rebooting fixes it, but hopefully, by "AUDIO" problems in the Focus specific firmware fix deal with these issues.
Also, my phone fails to open the Marketplace quite often.

Damn, wish I knew this before I went to the circus! Just started a 14 day pass and used it to play music on the way using the headphone jack. Came back home to play the videos and no sound. Never had a problem before. Now I know what happened, just wish I knew earlier. I must have missed this post when it was first posted:(. Hopefully a fix is coming with "Nodo".

I've got Nodo via the hack and it doesn't fix the headphone-voice search bug. Very annoying as it hampers my ability to rely on voice search, whoh is actually quite good.

The official NoDo update does seem to fix the mic problem. From what I gathered if you used the headset that came with the phone that has the mic built-in and plugged that in and out, you'd have no problems. It's when you use a regular stereo jack it would mess up the mic (doesn't switch back). So you can plug in the original headset or the alternative I use (rebooting is not cool) is to dial a call and then hang-up. This will reset the mic.
I got the NoDo update last night (btw, no notice from the phone itself, but when I plugged into Zune it told me). Gave me the Feb update, then after that, did an update search and found the March one. After listening to a podcast in the car this morning I snapped a video to see if the mic problem was fixed. It was! That was more important to me than copy and paste.

I don't think it was the NoDo update that fixed this, but the new Samsung firmware update. I've had NoDo for a few weeks (used the de-brand, VPN trick to get it) and was hoping that it would fix this issue. But it still happened. When I heard about the firmware update, I reset my phone to re-brand it, and then the firmware update appeared for me to install. Since I've had the firmware updated, I've connected headphones and then tested the mic and it appears to be good now.
It also appears that the firmware has improved the GPS accuracy as well. My RunKeeper app used to show my jogging path with a lot of zig-zag in it, now with the new firmware, by RunKeeper app shows a path that is much closer to the path I took.
