    Does not work for browser. Even with chrome set as the default browser, miui will still launch the miui browser when uding sesrch box

    It looks like Xiaomi have \”fixed it\” so you are not able to change default application any more. The really want to force the launcher, browser etc on to you. I don\’t like their launcher but I can\’t replace it, at least not for long because it will always be their default launcher that will start… Looks like root is not available any more either. Would not have bought Mipad if I had known this…

    Yes, I would also like to know how to change the Video Player??!!!

    Xiaomi mi4c with the miui 6 os.

    Someone recommended using the MX player as the videos will not play in the app I am using.

    I installed mx player and set it as default player, uninstalled and reinstalled HS, rebooted device … It simply doesn\’t work.

    Videos still try to open in the default app which gives an \”error occurred\” error.

    go to playstore searching for \’app freezer\’ and you can freeze any annoying stock app from MIUI…. then just left your favourite app 😉

    You can choose another launcher as default, if you have at least 3 launchers installed. Try it.

    So, I install a messaging app via the app store of redmi and i am using a redmi note 2, my problem is the messaging app that i installed doesn\\’t show up in the default messaging app list, it only shows up the facebook messenger, hang outs and the default messaging app of redmi i thought once you download any kind of messaging app it should show automatically but it didn\\’t. so when i use the new app that i install it doesn\\’t allow me to send the messages it says sending but it never get through and the previous text i sent couldn\\’t even appear on the screen so i have no choice but to use the boring default messaging app that xiaomi installed i hope you can help me figure out how this thing works then that would be very awesome if xiaomi can do that since i am aiming for an iphone look a like messaging app at the moment.
