"Suddenly" the mp4-videos from my mobile phone cannot be played anymore, no matter what player I use: it only shows a black screen plus plays the sound, but no image.

I tried to start from commandline, and maybe the messages say something to somebody of you...:

The first check is execute ffplay videofile and post the output line that starts with :"Stream #0:0(eng): Video:" it may have a different #0:0 numeral.
If ffplay works then vlc should but worst case you can convert it with ffmpeg.

ffplay plays normal, the line you asked for is:

Stream #0:0(eng): Video: h264 (High) (avc1 / 0x31637661), yuv420p, 3840x2160, 48327 kb/s, 29.98 fps, 30 tbr, 90k tbn, 180k tbc (default)

Yes, I could convert them, but I use vlc to look thru the videos deciding which ones I want to convert for web-use etc., to take screen shots an the like. It worked before with those videos...
