    You can put the file into any folder on your SD and the next time you open the Gallery app it should appear there. I find that sometimes the Gallery app doesn't refresh properly so I use a free app called SDRemount if I don't see files I expect to see in the Gallery.

    However, you would probably get better results if you install a media player like YXPlayer or Rockplayer. Those will play all the supported video files and also add support for others like divx.
