firstly i have not used freedom app so i cant say anything about it !! but u can flash gapps once and see if its works or not !! if that dont work then flash stock !!

and for video player MX player is the best !! and for mx player u have to download and install two files 1.mx player 2. MX Player Codec (ARMv6 for galaxy y)
i think u've installed the codec and thatswhy u can find it on ur phone !! i gave u the solution !! try it...

if it is an mp4 encoded with the x264 codec then no - not in its current form as the galaxy y does not support hardware accelleration


you have two choice

1 - download videos in avi encoded with xvid
2 - use your pc to convert the video into avi encoded with xvid

no if it is encoded in mp4 x264 - the galaxy y is not powerful enough to play it as it has no hardware accelleration

there are apps that convert video but I wouldnt bother with them - it would take days on a galaxy y
converting on pc or downloading avi in the first place if possible is the only solution


cm7 does support hardware accelleration with mx player but as we dont have full working libs the chances are if you turn on hardware accelleration in mx player your video will not play at all

It's better to convert it on PC and transfer to your phone

About your problem with the Google Play Store:
Install Root Browser, navigate to system/etc/ and delete the hosts file. Then reboot your phone and your Play Store will be working.
