    Default Sd card video file question

    Does anyone know if sd cards can only read certain files to play once moved to it? Does it depend on the card? I have the most expensive sd card out there class 10 64 gb but stone videos I move to my sd card are not playable. This kit Kat is a real pain the *** by the way

    You can store any file you want. You have to have the right video player though.

    I suggest you use MX Player or BS Player.

    Yes but if I can't stream to other devices like the stock video player can then it's useless to me so you know if it can?

    ditto on MX, it plays somethings that gives VLC on my desktop issues.

    Use iMediaShare to stream to other devices

    I had the same issue on my s3. It's a codec issue. Some players have the correct codecs, some just don't recognize them. Your best bet is to purchase a video converter (they're usually around $30) and convert them to mp4 and you will have zero problems. I wrestled with buying one, but it's a good investment if you travel and have a tablet. I have over 300 titles as avi and to be able to covert them is clutch.
