A little P.S to my above post. I can watch Youtube videos. For instance, I had an attachment emailed to me with a video, I was unable to open it. I looked at what is was called and then had to go to YouTube, searched it and viewed it there. There was also an audio attachment emailed to me that I was unable to open. I dont even have the place to click "open" or "save" like I do when a photo is emailed to me in an attachment. Any help will me VERY VERY APPRECIATED!!

Maybe the attached video files have a format that your stock media player can't play.

Players like Mobo Player or RockPlayer can play far more video formates.

The attached media files you should find on the SD card in the folder Download (find with a file manager like EStrongs File Explorer).

Don't you have the Market app (from Google) on your tab?

Start this Market app and with it you should be able to find and download&install these free apps on your tab:
Mobo Player
RockPlayer
EStrongs File Explorer

Hi Harry!

I went to the Android Market to download that app and it told me I dont have an Android phone with this log in (I have a tablet). So, I googled Android tablet apps and found some. I couldnt find the ones you were telling me about so just for the heck of it I tried to download "ANGRY BIRDS"....again, it said I dont have an Android phone and I was unable to download it. I dont know what I keeps looking for a phone when I was under apps for a tablet...on my table too. Im more confused than ever now.

P.S.
I have an app on my tablet to buy apps, I think its called "slide me" and I couldnt find anything similar. I did try to download a free app just to see if it worked thru there and I was again told I dont have a Android phone under this log in.....

Hi Jack, seems to be a problem with apps for the new Android tablets.

For to search your videos you could use any file manager that you could find for tablets.

Then look at the extension of the videos. Then search a video player for tablets which can play video files with this extension.

Do you have a Google account?
To log in with it on your tablet might be helpful to find more apps (payable apps) for tablets.

Good luck!

Harry

To add what Harry was saying, it is critical that you are logged into gmail (like a phone) so that market can recognize you. Usually this isn't the case, but people have forgotten a couple of times, especially if you root.
