How to transfer videos from computer to Samsung j7?

At the very first time I copy videos from my computer and paste in the folder "movies" in my phone, but it doesn't show on my phone.


You need to convert the video format to:

  • The video format supported: H.263, H.264 (AVC), MPEG4, VP8, WMV RMVB.
  • The audio format supported: MP3, AAC / AAC + / eAAC +, WMA, AMR-NB/WB, Vorbis, FLAC, WAV.

Install VLC Player for Android and you should not have to convert the files as the media player will do it for you. Or you can convert the videos yourself but may lose quality or audio. I have used the free trial of Pavtube Video Converter and it did the job perfectly for what I was working for. If you plan on doing this all the time then you will want to pay for the program. The J7 does not support many video formats that other Galaxy phones do.
