    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.

    No. She sent it to me in an email and it played that way but not by text. Wren its sent by text, its showing up as a slide show. When i click to save it, it gives me the option to save the one pic and the audio like when u click to save a slide show, u get to pic which pics to save
