Default iPad Mini won't show movies

Well this is weird. I've got one of the original iPad Mini tablets. Suddenly, as of a day or three ago, it won't show movies. Not from Netflix, not from Amazon Prime, not even from Google videos/YouTube.

There's been no iOS update ... they stopped updating this thing some time ago. It's still on 9 point something and tells me it's got nothin' if I ask it to check for updates.

It's certainly not the internet connection speed; SpeedTest gave me > 25mbps the other night when I checked it, and I was able to play movies over the same wifi connection on both the Mac Air and a recently updated iPhone 5.

Apple's shoving me toward a new iPad, is that the deal?

Don't Apple have on line / phone support?

I think Apple charges for phone support. You can go to their web pages and ask questions in the support forums or go to a store and ask at the genius bar.

I've called the store and they had no clue. Besides, this model's from 2012 or so. Googling's turned up nothing, even on the Apple sites. A real mystery. Or a real push to get Steve into the New iPad Store?
