    Hey, I have some videos that I don't want anyone else to see. I've used "App Lock" to password-protect the video player, but the problem is that the videos is appearing in Gallery. Is there any way to hide the video-maps in Gallery, without having to lock it? I don't want to lock Gallery, beause it gets annoying when I'm taking pictures with camera etc.

    I use gallery lock.


    You can hide specific pictures/vids. it doesn't lock the actual gallery, but moves the pictures you choose.to the gallery lock app, which you can password protect.

    Dude just remove them on to dropbox.. thats what i do, whenever i want to feed my ego ill just snatch them from there. Be sure to pass protc that sucker though.

    There is also an app called vault. It was recommended to me by a friend but i didnt like it because it was eating too much battery.

    I have 50 gigs of free storage from box.net just for owning an LG device at the time of the promotion. That's where I keep all my goodies at.

    Why use Dropbox when I have a 64 gig SDcard?

    if you have a file or root browser all you have to do is add a period before the folder name and it will no longer show up...

    easiest way to do it is put all your naughty things in a folder and name it ".private"

    just use your file/root browser to find the folder when you want to take a look at them..

    create a folder with a . at start example ".porn" that folder will be hidden from gallery and most other apps. to view just browse with my files app. make sure you have hidden folders enabled

    I only want to stop the folders from appearing in the photo gallery. I don't want the files to be hid from the video player, only in the photo gallery. I don't like to use third-party apps just for such a little thing. I also think that that third-party apps are slow and ugly, and I like the native player very well.
    And no, I don't want Dropbox, because that requires internet connection. I want my stuff available everywhere.

    You can always unmount your card until you get ready for it.

    They will still play in the stock video player...you will just need a few more clicks to access them...

    Sorry bro there is no way to hide them from the gallery like you want
