Too many apps

Is anyone having issues with playing videos? I'm having errors stating too many apps opened and need to close some.

 

I have the standard number of apps preloaded but I checked I have 79 apps? Is this due to having apps loaded to QNX and andriod player? How can I resolve this?

 

Thanks!

Re: Too many apps

Do you have the video issue after the 3 button reset? I'm assuming too much memory is being used up and restarting it would flush the memory.

Re: Too many apps

Do you have any issues with playing the demo video that comes with the PlayBook? There may be a problem with the codec used in your mp4 file. I'd try converting the file.

Re: Too many apps

Thank you for responsing.

 

I don't have any issue with the demo.

 

I'm confused when the error said too many apps opened and need to closed some.

 

I don't have any opened. Is there a way to show what apps are installed as I don't think I have 79 apps...

Re: Too many apps

Do you have any other video files you can transfrer and try too? I'd say try a different video format and maybe a smaller file size too. I'm confuzzled as to why that error is appearing too. You can check what apps you have installed under My World section in the App World.

Re: Too many apps

I guess there maybe a size limit on the video file.

 

I did look at the my app world and have 4 apps but take at look yours.

 

Go to "about" on uper right and general..

 

Under model, OS version and Serial #.. you will see the # of apps which is more than what you see at my app world..

Re: Too many apps

I have 120 apps installed. Yep, it's more than what's listed in My World. I'm assuming it's including all apps integral to the OS etc.
