    Ok, going to try and explain this the best I can....

    My phone is an S7 running Android 7.0.

    In my line of work there is a lot of traveling and waiting, so I have been saving movies and shows to my phone to not get bored during downtime. I have VLC on my phone for watching them.

    The problem I'm having is when I add new videos to the Shows folder I created on my phone, those videos will show up in my gallery or even if I open the camera and look back through the pictures/videos taken.

    Its more of annoyance then anything, but I would really like the gallery to not have access to this Shows folder.

    your phone sees the video files as indexes them. so far as I could tell, there isn't a way to "hide" folders natively. don't know if there are other apps that can help you.
