What version of Android does it have now ? Go to Settings > about device and you will see the android version there.

Android Device Expert: Ashik, Android Tech replied 2 years ago

The latest update that your Tab can handle is version 4.2.2, but some carriers have not released the update over the air yet.

If you are not on version 4.2.2 yet, then go to Settings and tap about device

Tap Software Update and if there are any updates available, then you will be able to do it from here.

To update your apps, open Play Store. Tap the three bar at top left, tap My Apps and if there are any updates available, tap Update or Update All.

If you face any other difficulty with your tablet, please let me know.

it's 4.2.2. I'm furious cause this is the 4th tablet I've bought. At first I had the Windows wasn't satisfied cause no google play. The 1st android didn't play my purchased movie. The 3rd didn't even connect to internet or play my video. This one doesn't want to play it either. They keep saying that an updated android is needed. I ain't going to sweat it anymore. I have my cell and laptop. I'll learn to download videos manually to tablet and install apps.
Android Device Expert: Ashik, Android Tech replied 2 years ago

That is strange. 4.2.2 should supports everything without any issue. There is no update than 4.2.2 for this mode. These are low powered tablets, so you will have difficulty streaming or playing HD videos but SD videos should be fine. If you want a reliable tablet, you should consider getting an iPad Mini (3 or 4) or Google Nexus tablets. If you are able to replace the tablet, then replace for these ones.

I completely understand your frustration. You don't need to sweat for a thing that you bought with your money which is supposed to work.

Have you tried factory resetting this tablet ? If you have nothing on this tablet, then I'd recommend to try a factory reset. Factory reset will delete everything from it and install a fresh version. Go to Settings > backup & reset and do a factory reset. After factory reset, setup the tablet again. Does it work ?

I'll try and let you know tomorrow. I'm tired and about to go to bed.
Android Device Expert: Ashik, Android Tech replied 2 years ago

Try it. Resetting and setup will take less than 10 minutes.

We can continue tomorrow if you want. I will be here if you need any help.

Still didn't work.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Will it just be best to get one from my mobile provider?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Good evening. I've resolved the issue by downloading the video. I'm not going to sweat it anymore.
Android Device Expert: Ashik, Android Tech replied 2 years ago

Hi there, Sorry for the delay. Had to go offline since it was very late in here. Is there any way you could replace the tablet ? The Tablet should be still under warranty.

Ask Your Own Android Devices Question
Android Device Expert: Ashik, Android Tech replied 2 years ago

If you are able to replace it, I'd recommend to replace it with a Samsung A or S tablet or with a Nexus tablet

Another way is, open Play Store on your tablet. Download Dolphin browser. Open Dolphin browser and you should be able to watch video directly on Dolphin browser. Try this and this will work.

Ok
Android Device Expert: Ashik, Android Tech replied 2 years ago

If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please don't hesitate to ask.

You should replace this Tab as this is more of manufacture issue as all sites and videos work on 4.2.2

Or give it one last try on Doplhin browser, or in Chrome if you have not tried in it. If it still not working, then you can replace it with a more powerful tablet.

Best Regards,

Ashik

Did Dolphin work for you ? If not, I'd recommend to replace the Tab as it is under warranty.
