Can I move downloaded movies on my android tablet to the SD card? If so, how?

Re: Can I move downloaded movies on my android tablet to the SD card?

Probably not. They are encrypted and the player will only look for them in 'secure' internal memory. They don't want the risk of somebody popping the SD card into another phone.

 

If you upgrade to Marshmallow (Android 6), it has the ability (if the manufacturer supports it) to format an SD card as internal memory. This lets it be used just like your phone's own memory. The SD card is encrypted and tied to the phone once formatted for that and will be unreadable on any other phone or device.

Thanks for the info...I thought that might be the case.
