    Is there a way to display the names of videos or pictures when viewing them in the gallery? Alot of my videos have the same beginning screen shot so to find the one I want I have to literally watch them to figure it out. There has to be a way to show the names without having to go through My Files > media > videos. I want to know what the names are when I go to view them

    Yeah this kinda sucks. If you mean stuff on the sdcard. I have put several dvd's on there but all it shows is a blank box on most of mine. Its not actually attaching a label for viewing but if you go to gallery and sdcard HIt Menu>More>Check a movie/file and then hit details it does tell you what it is. But man thats a 4 step process granted it takes 3 seconds but labels would be lovely

    Yup... it's very hard if all thumbnails look similar...
    however, i have never heard that there is a way to showing file name on gallery.... sorry....

    anyway, almost same way of "saps", press and hold any thumbnail you want until you reach the selection mode... and click "more -> details"
    then, it will show you the file name....
    even though this way requires you to check every video files at most, it requires 3 times of click for getting the name....

    i hope it will be helpful to you....

    I also had the same problem, until I figured out something inadvertently. If you put each movie file you have converted into its own folder, the folder name DOES show up in the gallery. Name each folder with the name of the movie, then transfer to your sd card. Hope this helps.

    It's rubbish, isn't it ?
    I'm not particularly an Apple fan, but even since buying my HTC Desire phone, I still carry around my iPod Touch with me, as viewing videos is so much more convenient.

    On my iPod Touch, I can see the names of the videos, so know exactly what videos I have available (rather than a list of "20th Century Fox" icons!!), and if I stop watching a video on the iPod, next time I run it, it'll continue playing from where I left off.

    These are common-sense basic requirements, and Android just doesn't do it right at all...

    When you first attempt to play a video it should ask you to choose a program that you want to use. When that screen comes up, at the bottom should be a checkbox that says "Make Default" or something. That should do it.
