Where are downloads stored?

Postby mcq1 » Wed Jan 25, 2017 8:26 am

I have downloaded several videos to my android tablet using the LDS Media Library App. I cannot locate where they are stored and I am concerned that they are being saved to internal storage and not my external SD card. Is there a way to make sure that the media is saved to the external SD card? Where are the files stored? Can the downloaded files be viewed by other players?

If you have Android 6, you can go to Android settings and move the app with all of its data to an SD card. Downloaded media is stored as app data – they aren't visible outside of the app. However, there are plans to add the ability to export images, audio, or video files to a user-specified location (for example, if you want to export an image so it can be used as your phone wallpaper, or if you want to download media for use in another app).

Could you give instructions on how to find what version of Android. Also details of how to move. Thanks

That's a question you'll have to direct toward a forum that supports your brand of tablet.

If there was a update for your tablet, I'd expect that you'd see a pending system update. But many tablets sold will never see a update.

My tablet is and Ellipses 8. It was updated November to 5.1. There is a youtube video showing how to install 6.01 but it is a hack and makes me nervous. I hope the the Apps engineers put in the storage location option soon. My wife's tablet has 6.01 and I was able to have LDS Media Library on the external sd card.
