    I thought a white theme would make it easier for themers and I think it looks good. I plan on adding more transparency in the future.

    how do you get the physical video player to show? when i click videos from the web it shows up on the list but theres no physical app to click from my drawer to see my vids
  14. ARocker

    ARocker Guides Guide

    Your vids should show up in the gallery. You click on them from there. Also the videos should show up in the "my files" app under videos. Lastly, you can download and use an explorer app to launch your videos.

    yea i knw but im talking about the stock video player app
  16. ARocker

    ARocker Guides Guide

    I may be wrong but I dont think it works that way. Were you able to when you were on 100% stock? I don't recall being able to.

    i was able to.. its the video app that show ur video thumbnails actually as gifs before clicking one
  19. ARocker

    ARocker Guides Guide

    Looks like the app your talking about got caught in the debloat (SamsungVideo.apk). I was under the impression that it was a Samsung crapwear for downloading videos you buy from Samsung and so it was deleted from the rom (its on the debloated list in the rom specifications). If there's more to the app than that, perhaps Ill add it back in the first update. Let me look into it.
