    If the video you want to play is on the external SD card, and VLC is installed, then tapping the video should bring up options of video players you can use.

    Or just simply folllow this tutorial

    apoc9 blog: VLC beta for Android - SD memory card scanning problem

    1. Open context menu by pressing button left from home button
    2. Go to the Settings (en) - 2nd option from bottom
    3. Open folders/directories settings in media library section of the settings - 1st on top
    4. Click on add custom path - on the bottom
    5. A dialog box appears with text input. In my case I have movies on SD Card in directory Movies.
    Therefore I had to specify path like this: /storage/extSdCard/Movies
    If you mess up, you need to clear/delete the application storage. There is no other method to remove invalid directories from the application.
    I entered this path and it works. I can place my movies where i want in my SD card.
    Code:
    /storage/extSdCard

    Thanks a lot.

    As I am on a LG G4 the path name is slitghly different :

    /storage/external_SD/****

    the *** is the folder you put your vids in.

    Yeah the information offered below didn't help me at all... I'm using a chromebook... and when I tried entering the directory path it just kept saying the directory path could not be found... so... yeah...

    Try starting the path with /, and use a path starting with / - if the folder you keep your videos in is 5 folders down from there, you have to put them all in. Some systems start with /sdcard, some start with /emulated, some may even start with /mnt. You have to learn how to specify an unambiguous path. (There are tutorials all over the place.)
