    I just got a 64 GB microSD card for my 1520 and I thought I'd move a big movie file on my Surface Pro that I bought and downloaded from the Xbox Video store. When I move it, a dialogue box saying "The file (name) has properties that can't be moved to the new location" shows up. What specific properties can't be moved, and does that mean if I put it on my SD card and put the SD card in my 1520, the movie won't show up on the WP 8.1 Xbox Video app?

    video sucks, tell me what is the extension of the movie. video only supports .mp4. download files from the store and movie the video through it.
    FILES is a file manager by Microsoft. good luck :)

    It's a WMV file, but I downloaded it directly from the Windows 8.1 Xbox Video app, so wouldn't that mean the WP8.1 app should also support the video? I know about, have, and use the Files app a lot, but I haven't put the movie on my SD card yet because I'm trying to figure out what permissions I'm losing when I get the movie on my SD card.

    I copied my movie file to my SD card and put it in my phone. When I try to play the video this happened:
    (and retrying didn't work)
    How do I get my movie on my SD card to play on my phone?

    Try playing the video through some other app? Like Moliplayer Pro?

    Please let us know if you get it to work. This is one of the things that's making me abandon WP.

    The movie I am trying to play was originally downloaded to the Videos folder on my Surface Pro and I moved it to my SD card. When I had the movie in the Videos folder and played it on the Windows 8.1 Xbox Video app, it worked fine. When I moved it to the SD card and tried to play it through the Windows 8.1 Xbox Video app, it gave me an error; however, when I still had it in the SD card and played it through Windows Media Player, it worked fine.

    From what happened, I'm thinking its an owner file property/DRM issue, because the owner file property changed from my username to "Everyone" after the file was moved to my SD card. Since the WP 8.1 Xbox Video app can download videos to play offline, I'm assuming it also downloads them as a WMV file like the Windows app. So I don't know if playing the video through moliplayer would change anything because Xbox Video also supports the WMV file type.

    Similarly to this, I would very much like to be able to directly copy TV recordings that I've made on my Media Center PC to my Phone for watching on the train. Up to know, I've always had to convert them to MP4.

    Was wondering if 8.1 offered any light at the end of the Tunnel...? IMHO, Microsoft are missing a trick to make a compelling reason for folks with Media Center PCs to buy Windows Phone!
