    I despise this new feature where when opening a video or downloading a file...whatever it is your now stuck with one app. I know you can go into settings and application settings and change it but half the time I'm not sure what app is even opening it. I might use many different apps for the same type of purpose 10 different times a day. So I'm suppose to go into settings each time? It was nice the way it's been forever where it let's u choose each time or if ur sure of the app u need that ur going to use all of the time, check the box and make it permanent. Like right now it's really bothering me when I click on an amazon link it always tries to open a video player app and then the link doesn't work but I have dozens of thise apps and don't know which one it is. Is there an easier way around this like it use to be and or is there a way to reset all my apps so I can choose again without factory reset. How fo I contact the android team and complain about this. Somebody's got to feel me on this one...right?

    Hi

    There is an app called "Better Open With" in playstore which is a workaround for this..
