You might check to see if the folder starts with a period. MX Player "hides" files and folders that have a period in front, unless told not to in Settings.

MX video player should be able to see your data folder. You may want to check your permissions.

Any reason why you don't just move the folder?

u need to make ur data folder read for all types of users.

if u have a file browser such as es file explorer or root explorer you can change permissions, make sure to check all the read checkboxes and apply the changes.

mx video player should detect that folder and all subfolders...

Something I just noticed. If the videos you want to play are associated with another app, MX Player will not list them for playing.

Clear any associations you may have applied to other video playing apps.
