  • I have a video player on my Samsung Galaxy III. For some reason it stopped working. I downloaded a new video program and would like to try that. How doI make it the default. The other player keeps coming up. Thanks for the help.

To change the default app to perform an action, go to Settings > general > apps (it could be different, I haven't used that old version of Touchwiz in a while). Find "Video player" and scroll down. Hit the "clear defaults" button.

Now go to where you stored the video and select it. The pop-up should ask you which app to use to open the video. Select the new app you downloaded as the default. Make sure you also select "always".
