    My video player on my 10.1 2014 ( With Kitkat) Suddenly stopped working. When I try to launch it it opens wheel spins and Crashes and I see a VERY brief window that says updating.

    I like the player and would like to use it. I downloaded a new one and it works fine but cannot find a way to uninstall and reinstall the stock one without doing a PIA full on reset. Any Ideas?

    If the "stock" one is a system app you have to be rooted. If not, just uninstall it like you would any other app.

    System apps are in a protected area for a reason. If an app in that area becomes damaged, you may have to reflash the firmware.

    Have you tried uninstalling the updates? menu>settings>applications find the media player and tap clear cache and uninstall updates. Then just to be save, reboot the tab. If media plays after that, try updating again. You may have had a corrupted update.
