I like official TED app which allows me to download videos for later offline viewing. I've downloaded many videos & watched all of them. Now, I want to remove them from my device to regain my storage space. But, I am unable to find option in app for this. I've looked in file system, but unable to find downloaded videos. Please, help.


On the My Talks tab, tap/press options button (you can tap the overflow menu in the top right corner if you are on tablet).

There is a Remove Items in menu. That should do the trick. It puts an x on all the videos and I'm assuming a tap on that will delete them. I haven't done this, because I haven't gotten around to watching them yet.

  • There's no overflow menu in the top right corner. Instead, there's a listen button. Anyway, thanks.. the later objectives are same. – Android Quesito Mar 26 '12 at 3:08
  • Sorry, I was on a tablet. Tapping the menu button does the exact same thing. – that1dev Mar 26 '12 at 3:22
  • Merge my answer in your own, so that I could delete my answer & accept yours.. – Android Quesito Mar 26 '12 at 3:31
  • I've done this.. waiting until its peer reviewed.. – Android Quesito Mar 26 '12 at 4:22

I have found the solution.
While on My Talks tab, press/tap options button to bring menu. From this menu, tap Remove Items which would allow you to selectively remove downloaded videos.


There are two ways you can remove the TED videos in bulk:

  1. Go to the path /sdcard/Android/data/com.ted.android/files/ using your file manager in Android. Delete all the videos directly from there.
  2. In your TED app, go to My Talks menu and then tap the vertical dotted icon at the right-top corner which will popup a dropdown menu. You should tap the Remove Items option which will show x at the left of each of the downloaded videos that you want to remove.

Hope it helps.
