I had the same unstable USB connection problem with my S4. I found that it doesn’t like the 3.0 ports. If you have a 2.0 USB port, use that one instead and I think you’ll do better uploading your videos. I use the VLC media player to view my android videos and it works great for me. Hope this helps :)

Download The first step is to download ffmpeg. It's a standalone binary so you don't need to install it. Just execute it directly. Your (expired) Ubuntu version offers avconv which is missing many features including several concatenation functions.

The problem started after I installed vdpauinfo and libvdpau-va-gl1, because VLC was complaining about their absence. Removing them fixed the problem virtually instantaneously: sudo apt-get remove vdpauinfo libvdpau-va-gl1

The scenario has changed in Ubuntu 16.04 ;-) If you were using the AMD Catalyst (fglrx) driver on older Ubuntu you may wish to avoid upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04.

Instead, Ubuntu "recommends using open source alternatives (radeon and amdgpu)", and say ...
