    Hi all, I have been using this stock "Videos" app that came with my LG Volt. It's actually very handy and does everything that I want. I would like to install the same app on my tablet, but I can't find any info on the app or find it in the play store.
    I thought I was on the right track earlier because I found in \system\app, a file called videos.apk. But turns out that's the google video apk.
    In case it helps, I am still running 4.4.2 and it says my software version is LS740ZV5.
    Anyone know anything about this app and how I can install it on my tablet? Looks like there is a companion "Music" app also installed, though I haven't used that one yet.
    I did some searching here and I see alot of people were removing it (or possibly they were removing that google video app).
    Thanks!!

    It's an LG app, you won't find it anywhere unless someone has uploaded it some where. You can use Titanium Backup, or some other backup app to get it and try to install it on your tablet, but it may not work depending on its dependencies.

    Have you tried VLC? It's a very good media app.

    Ok thanks for the info. I may try titanium then.
    I do have vlc as it's always been a solid player, but my one complaint vs this other app is the swipe action to ff or rew doesn't show preview on vlc whereas this app does. So you don't know where you're at until you take your finger off the screen. Not a big deal, but it's handy.
    My other option may be to just try a few other players and see if I like any of those. There's a ton out there.
    Thanks!

    Yes, I ended up going to mx player. I might buy the full version to get the ad off the screen as well.
    Thanks!
