Hey everyone, long time ios user and recently switched to a gs4 because of larger screen. Im wondering why after I dumped an avi into the phone its now in the gallery as well as my video app is this normal? I would def prefer it just in my video app thanks

I was surprised to find the same thing when I put my first AVI file on my Note 2. I guess that's just how Samsung has chosen to organize things, personally I find it quite handy.

this is the default on android, the gallery app shows all media files

If you have a file explorer app, create a blank file in the directory where your movies are, called .nomedia (the dot is part of the file name)

the gallery app will then ignore this folder
