    Default Video player/Netflix faulty playback

    Hi guys, I just picked bought this tablet a few weeks ago and a recent problem arose a week or so after use with the video playback. I can stream from YouTube without issue but when I try to watch a video file from my ext. sd through Samsung's video player it runs into major problems from slowed playback to choppy and line scratchy frames. The same problem occurs in Netflix. I will post some impromptu pictures.

    Try playing videos with MX Player or BS Player:

    BS Player: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...spandroid.free

    MX Player: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...videoplayer.ad

    Hey, I tried bs player and I found the same problem that I should mention when I tried vlc. my media files just aren't showing up. They are in my folders and appear within Samsung's video player but nowhere in vlc or bs. I tried changing my sd card to see if maybe the one I had in the tablet was corrupted somehow but the one I knew to be working from my phone didn't work either.

    Have you tried doing a hard restart? I had a similar issue and hard restart and the problem was resolved.

    Just tried mx and it seemed to solve the problem even with Netflix! That's wild, what did mx player do? It seems strange that the other video players would all of a sudden act up but that installing mx would fix the entire problem. Mx was some sort of cure.

    MX Player and BS Player are really good. Glad it finally worked.

    A bit of a over exaggeration, but no problem. :')

    I had the same but intermittent issue and downloaded my player. It didn't work and I had the tablet exchanged since I was still with in 14 days.

    Changing wont solve issue. I also experienced same thing as many others have also. Hopefully an update will fix this. A restart fixes issue. Mine hasn't done it in over a week. But when it does.. another restart. Annoying.. INDEED. Pretty sure its all of Samsung's bloatware.
