Gallery app plays videos.

IMO, Media app should be named Music.

Current app naming is confusing.

Unless, of course, this is simply an example of a Jolla application that has not got all of its features yet. Perhaps the plan is to extend the types of media it can play/display

True, but then I would have expected video playback in the media app, not in gallery. But this is just a minor bug/feature/usability glitch anyway.

Videos made with the jolla makes sense to have in the Gallery. Other films (like Big Buck Bunny) should go elsewhere, imho. Media should be renamed as it is only used for playing music.

11 months later, and Media player still only plays music. How about you rename it to Music player since that's all it does? Media player does find some video files too with default/broken tracker queries, but only plays the audio tracks, but that's a separate bug.

This bug/feature is still valid for SailfishOS (Äijänpäivänjärvi). Media player just plays music and Gallery app videos.
