    Reading numerous posts I understand VideoView MP4s can not be saved in the DirAssets but in an external folder such as DirRootExternal. How are the MP4 files saved to the DirRootExternal and is that done when the app is packaged?

    If you are distributing the MP4 with your app you have to add the video to your assets, then, when the app starts you copy the video to DirRootExternal (or DirDefaultExternal which is preferable).

    Thank you NJDude. Of course, that make complete sense.
