    I've only been messing around with my new MID7022 for a day. I've put some videos on it but I can't say their names or a thumbnail picture of them. What can I do to get those two things working?

    PS: The videos play just fine. They are mp4 format.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mvideo Player works great. It will find your videos on your SD card and then list them in a menu with titles and thumbnails.

    I was wanting this to work without adding any extra app, but I will give that a try if there is no other way.

    stock video player sucks for all devices. I suggest trying out some market video players. Along with the ones mentioned I like moboplayer. Allows you to adjust brightness and volume by swiping finger up and down and saves these settings for just when you play videos.

    I use RockPlayer Universal because it plays m-jpeg video from my Cannon point and shoot camera and also files from my Cannon HD cam-corder (if I rename them mpg). This was the only player that seemed to work out of the 3 or 4 I tried.

    Ok, here's my update. I tried every app mentioned here and some other so called "great" ones. Every single one gave me some sort of problem, the most common being glitching artifacts in the video or control misfunction. Most didn't create video thumbnails. Enter Zimly. Zimly Media Player It wins on two points, being an audio and video player in one app, but it is working perfectly for me. I love it! I have thumbnails created automatically for everything. MP3 album art displays properly. They seem very responsive to feature requests and want to improve their app. It's also free. How could I forget that.

    I'm happy to say my problems have been solved with this app. I can't wait to see where they take it in the future.

    The only issue I have with Gallery is it doesn't list the file names. I downloaded a video player simply called "Video Player" and it seems to just be a simple app that lists all of your videos, including file names... then once you select a video, it will open the player of your choice (which I prefer to just use Gallery).

    Would it be a lot of trouble for someone to tell me (in some detail) how to download and install an app like Zimly Media Player? I to have a ton of videos from my Canon Point and Shoot camera that I would like to transfer and play on the Coby 7022. I'm a real novice at this Android world. Thanks

    If you don't have Android Market installed, you can download it directly from Softonic using any browser directly from your tablet:
    Zimly (Android) - Download

    It seems to be available from GetJar as well (highly recommended if you have only AppsLib):
