    Hi all, I just purchased a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and wanted to download movies to watch on the plane/road/bus.
    I tried accessing the movie w/o being connected to the network and it doesn't work. Is there a way to move the downloaded movie somewhere else say to the Gallery to be able to watch it?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Sorry, meant video hub

    Hello JTH006. Welcome to Android Forums. I've placed your query in the Galaxy Tab 2 area for exposure to more users of that device.

    I have the media hub on my Tab 2, but refuse to use it for various reasons, not the least of which is the poor reputation it has on the Tab as well as the S, etc.

    When I searched around the net for info on the hub, I noticed a plethora of issues, and very few remedies.

    Anyway, I want to help you, but in this case it will be best to get input from those in this area who've had success with that program. :)

    If the movie or tv show hasn't expired, i don't have any problem viewing it without a wifi connection.

    As soon as I go into Video Hub and try and start the movie it says I must connect to the network first.

    What movie is it? Rented, or purchased?

    purchased Abe Lincoln through a voucher the first time I started video hub. It will play if I start it then pause and come back to it. If I have to go through the hub to start it again I have to be connected (I believe it connects when I browse the video hub )

    Have you configured Settings in Media Hub to use the SD card for storage? You may have to enter your password in order to check those settings in Media Hub, Settings, then Memory Management.

    If you've already done that, browse the card from the My Files app:

    extSdCard/Download/.SamsungMediuHub/contents/[some number]/HD or SD/the movie.pyv. If the movie does not appear in this folder, the Tab may be using the internal memory to save movies, and if there isn't sufficient space available, it may be trying to download the remainder of the file.

    Likewise, if your SD card is low on free space.

    You can also start a video file from the My Files app.
