I have a Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. I cannot locate my default video player in this phone. If I have videos that needs to be played, I'd have to go to "Gallery" and play the video from there, but if I were to open the settings from the Gallery, I could open it with "Video player", but I cannot locate it anywhere on my phone.

 
I Saw a link to download the samsung video player but it said it is not compatible. So basically this means my phone DID not come with a default video player, I can only play my video through the Gallery app. I don't want to install other video players because they contain in ads. 
 
Any thoughts suggestions? Or other video player apps I can use without in ads.

This is the stocked video player on every Samsung device since One UI launcher was introduced. You may need to add it to app drawer if you don't see it.1701528451461_1701528451452_0.jpg

I believe that they announce that they got rid of the video player since it wasn't being used by most people.

Go to the Google Play Store and find and install the VLC Media Player. It plays just about anything regardless of the source or file type, and it's free.
