What Android phone model do you have? Did you give the app the necessary privileges to access your gallery?

LG G6 and yes I gave it the ability to access my photos and videos. To me it looks like a demo video of some sort but Im not sure as I can't find it to play it.

It's the HDR demo video from LG, and no...you can't delete it.

It shows up in the gallery in the "preload" album. You can play it from there.

If you open the gallery and back out of the camera folder, you will see the other albums you have (including that one).

You don't see it in the gallery app? Hit the back arrow at the top left when you are in the camera folder, and it should show you all the folders.
