I want to open a certain type of video files with the app "Movies & TV" ?

 

But it doesn't exist at the section "Open With - Choose Another App - More Apps"

 

How to do that?

When you open Default Apps in Settings, look right at the bottom of that page and you will see ''Choose Default Applications by File Type''

 

Click on it and wait for the list to load. Search for your file type and then set  the program you want to open it.

You might have to install some software.

you might need some codec packs installed but you have to be careful what you install as most of the free codec pack's

include some kind of malware/adware.

 

a common one to get is k-lite codec pack.  but make sure you have unchecky installed before you run the install.

 

unchecky is in the download section of this website or you can google it.   it will always select custom install and "uncheck" all the malware/adware boxes & "decline" all

installs of malware/adware that they try to slip by because some people get click happy.  It works very well and is a great prevention tool for some people that constantly

keep installing the same toolbars and other crap.
