The pre-installed video player on my Tab A 10.1 tablet doesn't always play different formats (such as mkv files). When I installed MX Player that problem was solved. But I accidentally cleared the default for MX Player and now only the pre-installed player will open when a video is selected. I've gone to settings>apps> and can find MX Player but cannot get it to be the default player, nor can I find the Pre-installed player to dissociate it in order to choose MX Player. I stream video from my pc via the Airstream app.

Solved! I was able to un-associate the video player and now when a video comes up with choices of player to use I'm careful to make sure I use the "Use Only Once" option.
