Xoom 1: Can't change default external movie player (1 Viewer)

In the Movie section of ampDroid 1.1, on my Motorola Xoom 1, I set the default external video player and now I can't change it. How do I do this?

I've unchecked the "remember settings" box, closed ampdroid, restarted, but I can't get it to forget the default player setting. It always loads the default player, without asking which to use.

There must be somewhere to clear all the defaults, but I can't find it.

Any ideas?

    had the same prob with the same device, never found out how to change it so i uninstalled the external player (in my case mxplayer) and next time i was able to choose again the player.

    Dont know if you are able to uninstall the default player, you can also try to reinstall AMpdroid

    aMPdroid is using android intents for this. You should be able to undo this by clicking "Clear app defaults" in Settings -> Apps -> mxPlayer/vPlayer/..., if not then it sounds like a device bug...
