Cool, I like the video sound effects☺
But I still think the original jb video player is in it's own league because its more easy to use and the ui is more neater. But thanks I love this vlc player. I totally forgot about it when I upgraded to kitkat.☺
If anybody could still try to get the old jb video player back for us, it will be much appreciated. 😆
And if anyone needs help with any of this kitkat upgrade stuff, I would be glad to help.

Mx player is even better. With the s/w audio decoder you can boost the sound up to number 30 which is exactly 200% louder volume without sound distortion. ☺☺☺

I think that is all to kitkat and it's safe to upgrade.😆☺😆

But on JB's video player there was really great drivers. In my opinion with the Dolby there was awesome bass booster on tablet's speakers, which isn't present on actual KitKat builds video player, especially in MxPlayer which I'm using.

Yea! We need the jb video player! ☺☺☺
Can anyone get it for us?
I tried every player but the jb video player stands out of them all.
Faria? Anyone? Unfortunately I'm not a developer.😢
And if someone can get it for us then everyone gains benefit from it.
Please help us in this regard. ☺

I've managed to get hold of the Video Player from JellyBean if anyone wants to have a go at trying to install it in KitKat.
Please let us know how it goes, and how you managed to achieve it.

Unfortunately it doesn't work.
It first said "application not installed" when the I was installing the apk as an update to the original video app.
When placed it in the system/app, it says parsing error, when trying to install from that directory.
I'm not an android expert but I think someone will have to "port" it for us.
Nice try though, @lin_ux

Thank you for sharing!

I'm not really bothered about the Video apk.

What I'm actually looking for, is the "Dolby" apk that was part of the JB firmware.
Can you share that?
I tried looking for it everywhere in the net, but didn't found any compatible for the Samsung Tab yet...

I don't understand why samsung removed it from the firmware?!

Thanks for the "Thanks"
I'm in the same boat as you guys, I've already upgraded to KitKat so I don't actually have any of the old JellyBean app versions anymore on my T310.
I obtained the file I posted above from asking for it on another forum which somebody kindly extracted from their device. I tried to install it myself but had no joy, but thought it worth posting here for others to try just in case.
It looks like we are not going to be able to revert to the old video player, and getting the Dolby function back again will be a struggle, maybe not even possible, which is a shame. Having the Dolby feature made media playback using the built-in speakers sound so much better.

Other than the missing Dolby, my installation of KK is running pretty good, I'v made several system tweaks and removed a huge number of the Samsung apps to make it leaner. The first thing I had to do was turn off the stupid KK permissions for the SD card so that it is accessible fro all apps and works like it does in JellyBean.
