Im thinking on getting this basic4android for programming but actually im am just interested on programming a simple media viewer from sd card or usb hdd device.Sound just like all i need is apps from apps store like explorer,manager etc.

My prob is like this.I am collecting dvd and bluray movie and i copy or ripped it from my disc.I bought Noontec A9 Android Smart TV sometimes in February but i found that the DEFAULT explorer to view file from my USB HDD or SD Card is not good looking.Ive try a lot of free explorer from playstore but most of them dont support file from usb hdd.So i am planning to program a neat looking viewer for my usb hdd device and open the file with any choosen video player apps.I have a little bground in programming(im from BlitzBasic and NuclearBasic community)

My plan:
1.Create a file explorer that will view only Movies file in my USB HDD Drive(normally subtitle file also view)
2.Sort the movies inside it alphabetically automatically
3.Maybe if a put a picture the same name with the movie file,the explorer will show the pic(not the actual movie file)
4.When i touch the pic that represent the file it will bring up android "Open With" so i can choose which player i want to play the movie

So, the explanation quite easy but i dont know how deep the knowledge i need to create this in basic4android.Is this doable as beginner?Or any thing that can help me get started?

Thanks in advance
