    I have recently upgraded from and s4 mini to the s7edge. On my old phone when using showbox I was always asked what app I wanted to use to play the video,whether it be all cast vlc player or mx player. On the S7 edge when I select the player to use it then automatically uses that every time as a default. Is there anyway of changing the settings so it always asks me what to open with other than having to go into the settings every time and removing the default application.

    Thanks

    Go to Settings/Applications/Default applications/Set as default.
    On the screen that opens up go to the appropriate setting and tap on it and then tap on CLEAR DEFAULTS.
    The next time the option opens up to play the video, just tap on the choice only. That way your S7 should not automatically set your choice as default.

    Unfortunately, the OS system might be set up so that if you make the same choice repetitively, it becomes default. I am not sure about this. Have not faced this issue myself.

    Best of luck

    Samsung removed the choice 'Always' and 'Just once' for 'Complete action using' ?
    A work-around could be the free app 'Better Open With' on Google Play
