    I had the similar problem. The solution is way too simple.

    Forget reset or restore. All you need to do is:

    Go to search, type the name of another video file that you know you have in your library and click on it. That's it. This will open the new video and close the one that caused the crash.

    Do not open the file that made your screen went blank. Go find it and delete it.

    Hope it works for you!!

    I found an amazingly simple solution

    After spending most of the day restoring factory settings and even bloody downloading a new app and a hundred other things none of which worked I simply used the search facility for one of my films and it played straight away and I could see my library. I tried playing the rogue episode which crashed it in the first place it went black again did the search thing again and all was right with the world of ipad once more

    Use the iPod app to fix it!

    Start the iPod app and play a podcast. If you don't have any, just download one through the app and play it. Once done, try playing a video. This worked for me!

    Quick, simple and no resetting/rebooting/deleting/reloading!

    Come On Apple.

    Why didn't you fix this bug with the new firmware?

    You must be able to do better than this!
