How to hide video files in Playbook

I want to hide some of the videos to hide from my kids. There is no such option that any particular video file doesnt show in the videos list. Insted, if there is any option to hide the icon of the video from the menu, just like option in the Bold 4 smartphone.

There's an app called "my file manager" that secures and hides files.

Re: How to hide video files in Playbook

There isn't an option per se.

However there is an app in AppWorld that will let you do it.

Personally, I just use the Air Browser in AppWorld to rename the file extension from .mp4 to .mp4.me.

This hides the video from the player until I name it back again.
