Where to store video files?

AlexRutherfordAlexRutherford GBUniversity ✭✭

Hi guys,

Just a quick question, where should I be storing my video files for my application? I have about 45 videos (800MB all together). Im not sure where to store all of these and cannot seem to find a straight answer anywhere else for some reason.

As far as I'm aware there are 2 places I can store them: "raw" folder in resources OR "Assets"?

At the moment I have them stored in "raw" and they seem to run from there but now for some reason the "android player" (simulator) crashes the app after splash screen (but works on a real device). When I remove all of the videos it will launch just fine, this is the reason why I'm asking this question.

Any help would be great.

Cheers all,
Alex Rutheford
