    I've had problems when iphone people send me pictures it plays like a video, and videos come up like pictures. But otherwise no problem. On the custom rom I'm running the stock video player freezes, do I use mx player instead. So crazy things happen sometimes

    No. Its a software issue of some sort. Like if there is a drop in signal the slightest bit, it messes the video up during download. Because some will work and others won't

    You should be able to select mx player as your default video player. Go into manage apps/select gallery/scroll down to clear defaults/select. Do the same with messaging app. Then go into messaging select the video and see if it gives you mx player as an option.

    The "video" plays as a slide show with audio. It won't play in the mx player
