    Go to Store, navigate to the Music & Videos category and download the Videos app from there.

    Thanks, that's the first place I went, but couldn't not locate the App - this time I was more determined, and luckily clicked the category heading, and all the Apps appeared. Thanks for you time - I hope it works now as it refused to play some of my downloads from the internet after I removed them from the video folder (flickers in parts) - this was probably caused by ATI 's original video card drivers so I uninstalled the App hoping that might fix the locating bit, and also hoping ATI's Drivers would remove the flickering - fingers crossed anyhow.

    Yes its working again, and has relocated the downloads - there is a little bit of flickering but not much, so I'm happy .

    I'm sorry if the locating thing is a bit misleading - what happened was the mp4 clips I downloaded flickered in the video APP and not windows media player so I removed them from the video folder - then decided I wanted to try and fix this or at least try to, so I put them back and then the video App wouldn't locate them - this could be misleading also cause for some reason when I added my movies to the video folder they ended up in a folder named video 2, but since they were accessible thru the network I ignored this - so I have 2 folders one called video - the default video folder, and the video 2 folder, so I drop the MP4'S in each one and neither of them would show the MP4's in the video App, so thinking I corrupted something I decided to uninstall the video app, fix up the folders firstly so there was only one video folder and then reinstall the app, and hopefully that would fix the problem.

    After all of that muddle I was in - installing ATI drivers - and the above, I may well of left it the way it was, I didn't get anywhere, as I still have the flickering - I guess I ran out of problems, so I started to create them.
