Xbox Video receives minor bug fixing update for Windows Phone
If you are into watching videos on your Windows Phone, you will want to go and grab the Xbox Video update that just went live.
Version 2.6.284 is now live for those who want the practical details. However, there are no new functions revealed, just "minor fixes and improvements". But wait, there's more!
Xbox Video 2.6.284
- Improved status messages during content downloads
- Fixed an issue that caused HD purchase to be unavailable for some content
- Polish fixes and general improvements
*Correction: An earlier version of this article used the Windows app changelog instead of Windows Phone. The new changes are shown above.
Not bad at all. As you can see, the full changelog reveals that Microsoft is still hard at work updating their Video app, and it is coming along nicely. Nevertheless, I'll leave the final verdict to you in comments.
Remember, if you have a feature that you want, suggest or vote for them at Microsoft's Xbox Video User Voice! You can find the site here.

The changelog from the website
I like the player called "xVideos". (dont go over the name. :P it plays videos from memory card or phone with ease.)
Another player, is QuickPlay. For music, you may find several apps like muzik player, cool music player, find my music, etc. etc. But I believe that the default player is good enough. And for video downloads, use U.C. Browser.
It works for audio too. But if you want to download songs, use the apps called Music +.
Yeah. They are two apps with same names. One downloads from its own browser, and other downloads from mp3skull. Both save songs to the music folder and so you can listen them from default music player. And Daniel, can we just call you "Dino"? :P suits your dynamic personality and its derived from your name! Daniel rubINO. :D
And for playing flv and mkv files, there are apps. They are mkv player and the other is flv player. :)
The thing is that the videos app is no more in my app list. Yes, it is gone. This had happened while updating the last time. I thought another update might solve the problem, but it hasn't.
It shows the same old message... "cannot install the app. If its the first time this message is being displayed then try again, or else go to settings and check for updates making sure you are using the latest version."
And the thing is that in the app store, it shows that the videos app is installed in my phone, but it doesn't show up in the app list, nor in the storage sense all apps installed list.
What do i do? Recently same thing happened with me while updating asphalt 8. After downloading, I was installing, and suddenly, the app is gone. It shows installed in the store, but its nowhere to be seen. And it is still using my 1.6GB space. Please help.
