Samsung also shared the reasoning behind discontinuing the Samsung Video Library. Despite garnering a significant following and receiving ample customer interest, the app’s discontinuation has been attributed to two primary factors. Firstly, the app struggled with low usage and activation rates, indicating a diminishing user base. Secondly, distinguishing Samsung Video Library from other similar apps became increasingly challenging, potentially causing confusion among users. As a result, Samsung has made the tough choice to cease the service while appreciating the support and affection of its dedicated customers.

The Samsung Video Library offers a versatile platform for users to effortlessly explore and enjoy video content. Featuring a clear and intuitive layout, this application streamlines the video-watching experience. When you opt to use Samsung Video Player to view your video clips, it promises a seamless and user-friendly interface, ensuring that your multimedia journey is both accessible and enjoyable. Whether you’re looking to browse or play video content, Samsung Video Library strives to deliver a convenient and satisfying experience for its users.
