    Every time I go to open a picture for full screen or to play a video, I get asked to enable WiFi. Why? And how do I make it stop. It doesn't matter if I have a WiFi connection or not, is has to be enabled for me to view anything:

    are you rooted?
    are you using something other than the stock media viewer?

    good chance you downloaded a media viewer & every time you go to open up a picture/video, that app is attempting to connect to the internet via wifi to download some type of metadata for any videos/photos you would view. try resetting your defaults for such programs.

    make your stock Video player your default player & see if you can open the videos.

    Not rooted and I have not downloaded anything as a viewer, but I will give it a shot. Thanks!

    FIXED! I was using "connected Media" instead of Gallery to view my pictures. Thanks.
