    Go to settings and then to application manager there you would find app preferences. You can change there accordingly.

    I don't see what you are talking about. There is no app preferences. There is app defaults, but it doesn't having anything about video player.

    Now you have to play your video files thru the MX app or whatever player you choose, or thru the "my files" icon.
    Just can't play them thru the gallery any longer.

    Then don't open from gallery, open from the other app. Or convert it.

    hello all

    its funny how many people have given advice when they don't have the phone,

    but you need to go to the video player and clear the "set as default"

    then when you go to open the video it will ask you what to open it with

    you select

    then this is set as default!

    please go to video player to clear as default not the app!

    i've been looking for four days and just figured it out

    hope this helps

    Go to settings - Applications - Scroll down to Oculus Videos Which will be Purple colour icon - Click on it - Scroll down to Set as default - Click on that option and set as None set as default.

    Next time when you try to open video it will ask option of apps click and choose app you want and click on always to set default to open each time

    Hope this helps

    Mine does not have Oculus and none of the video or photo apps are set as default. I can't seem to set MX player as the default.

    Direct from my S7:

    Settings>applications>default applications>set as default>video player>Clear Defaults!

    You may also wish to change this setting:
    Settings>applications>default applications>default app Selection>Ask Before Setting Default Apps

    I follow those steps, however, the video player says not set as a default.

    Settings >> applications >> 3 dots (menu) >> default applications.
    Now there's a menu "default app selection" it should be on "set default apps automatically" .
    Change it to "ask before setting default app".
    Clear the default apps and the next time you play a video you will be asked if you want to set the app as default.
