Samsung Fascinate :: How To Transfer Recorded Videos To PC?
Oct 28, 2010
I can not figure out how to transfer my videos from my SF to my PC via USB. I successfully transferred one video via dropbox, but it seems to be having trouble with the current one I keep trying to move, maybe due to it's larger size, and it seems like it should be obvious to just plug in the USB and transfer it. The trouble I am having is that once my pc finds my SF and I "mount" it, and I have tried this via mass storage and via the media sync options, my pc will only let me view and transfer the files from the sd card, but apparently the videos I record with my phone are not stored on the sd card.
I need to know how to a) make the videos/pictures store on my sd card rather than the internal memory and b) transfer the videos/pics from my phone to my pc via USB. Usually I can figure this stuff out, but after searching all day, and reading tips, and going through the manual, and installing samsung's usb drivers, I have had it and need a nudge in the right direction.
Yamb is a program I've been using to be able to change the .mov container of videos to .mp4. Basically, what I use it for is to download movie trailers off the iTunes store, and make them compatible to watch through my PS3 (or Xbox 360) on my 50" HDTV and my surround sound system. You can convert 720p or 1080p trailers to watch on your HDTV with absolutely no loss of video quality or audio quality. Not to mention the conversion process usually lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 seconds.Now, what do movie trailers have to do with my Samsung Vibrant 720p videos I recorded you may ask?Well, this same program makes your .3gp videos (the format the Vibrant records in) compatible to watch on your TV, via your PS3 or Xbox 360.
I recently took my Epic to a concert and recorded some videos. The picture quality of the videos was OK but the audio was amazingly distorted. There was a lot of bass at the concert which greatly I assume distorted the entire videos sound. I am greatly disappointed as I cannot listen to the songs cuz the sound so bad! Is that normal?
When i connect my fascinate to my pc via USB i can view all the files on my sd card, transfer back and forth, but the videos i've recorded are in mp4 format and my pc only plays them back as audio. Anyone have any idea how i can ciew on my pc?
I've had the phone for about a day now and I'm starting to get the hang of it. I connected my phone to my laptop (WinXP) via usb cable and mounted it and what not and the laptop recognized it. I see it in explorer as my E drive and see the following folders:
Android DCIM LOST.DIR tmp app(which I created)
when I copy files to the app folder and try to search for it on the phone I cannot find it using Astro. I also set the phone to mass storage.
I want to get the input/opinions of some other people on this topic. I have a couple of big events coming up that I will be recording with my (soon to have) Evo. Now I know that Qik is gonna be huge when it comes to 2 way video calls, but my question/dilemma is to either use the native Camcorder/Video Camera app and upload them to Youtube, or to use the Qik app and have it stored on the Qik site. From what I've heard and seen, when a video is recorded/streamed to Qik, the quality that results on the Qik site is NOT nearly as good as what you're actually seeing and recording on your screen (compression, whatever, bla bla bla). However, I have seen videos on Youtube from people with EVO's where the quality is a ton better and it looks really good. So, why would anyone want to use the Qik app to take video recordings, when the end result on their website is of less quality as supposed to using the Camcorder/Video Camera app and posting it to Youtube? Is the only benefit for Qik is that people can watch your video being streamed pretty much right then and there (with only a little delay)?
A few weeks ago any video taken via Hangouts would get automatically be backed up (like photos). I could view them online in my google+ autobackup area.
There recently was a change though so now those videos don't seem to be backed up automatically. (Photos still get backed up fine.) And I can't figure out how to save such videos while within Hangouts.
I have a HUAWEI g300, and while the quality of still images taken with the camera are great, video quality is awful. Or, to be more specific, the audio that goes with the video is very poor.
I believe that this may be due to the file format of the video.
For this reason, I would be interested to know whether there are any ways to change the file format which videos are recorded in. Are there any alternative camera apps that are any good, which ideally allow the user to select their own file format? My device is rooted btw.
I am coming to the SF from a BBStorm. I hated the BBStorm but it did have one feature I really liked. The BB gave me the option of either streaming or downloading videos, I loved that. Could someone please tell me how to download videos to the SF? Please tell me wht apps I may need or what settings to change. I am lost at this point.
I recorded like 5 videos with my inc, but now only 1 is there. I watched all of them fight after I recorded them, and then tried to email them to someone. Since then the videos wouldn't work. It said the video would not play. Now the videos are gone. Has anyone had any problems like this?
I got my brother, who is not very tech savvy, a Samsung Fascinate last month. He was asking me recently the best way to copy his pictures and videos ... I wasn't sure what to tell him. I looked, and I noticed his pictures have a "share" option that you can send them to Picasso. Is that good? The videos however did not have this option. Should he simply connect to his PC with a USB cord and copy the files directly?
I have a Samsung Fascinate and would like to transfer pictures and videos from my phone to my laptop. I try to use the Allshare app but my phone won't recognize my laptop for anything other than music. This is really weird and confusing.
I wanted to know if it is possible to improve to improve audio recorded during a video??
I mean I can record video at 720p 25 fps, but the DAMN audio gets recorded at 12 kbps!!
It's just tinny and annoying sound cuts up all the time.
So it is it possible to increase the bitrate of audio via modifying some system file or changing some parameters in phones hidden settings or something like that?? my phone is a Chinese Zopo PILOT ZP100. .
btw, When I use Sound / voice recorder, it records in 3gppp at high setting with 127 kbps AAC audio.
I got a replacement Fascinate as my old one had some quirks. The guy that did the transfer accidentally forgot to take my old phone back, so I now have my new one and my old one sitting in my lab.My old one doesn't work (deactivated), and the new one is activated. I'm going to return the old one tomorrow, but before I do, is there any way to get all the info on that one transferred to the new one? By that I mean apps, all my contacts, pictures, etc etc?
When I select it a new drive shows up in my computer, f:. However when selected to browse or transfer files it says "please insert disc in drive f:". When I look in the phone the mini sd is detected and has 14.7 gb of free space. What is going on?
I would like to upload videos from my computer to my SF. I'm using Salling to do the same thing with my music but was wondering what the easiest way is for videos? Is there even a video player on the SF? What file formats will it recognize? This is a very important feature to me and I'm surprised it isn't very intuitive.
Is there a way to display the names of videos or pictures when viewing them in the gallery? Alot of my videos have the same beginning screen shot so to find the one I want I have to literally watch them to figure it out. There has to be a way to show the names without having to go through My Files > media > videos. I want to know what the names are when I go to view them
I am tired of my phone loosing connection when I try and use pdanet or trying to transfer files. I get almost all the way with the file then I loose usb connection. My wifes phone does not have this problem for the most part. Only when pdanet. What can be done? I have tried many different drivers and still same issue with my phone.
I want to be able to use/view the video's I record with my phone on my computer. (open from an email or use in window's movie maker)I have a new computer with Windows seven at work and a Vista laptop at home. I can send the video to myself and try to open in from my email or tether to the computer and transfer the file manually. Either way I can't open with windows media player. Video's taken with default "Camcorder" app on a myTough 3G running Android 1.6.I know it has something to do with the codec's the phone uses but wonder why they wouldn't use codec's that are compatible with the most commonly used pc's?Is there any way around this? Some kind of converter for the computer or for the phone?Is there another camcorder app that can record video with a different codec or is it phone hardware specific?So far have been able to use these forum's to sort out most of my Android problems but I'm stumped on this one. It doesn't seem like it should be this hard to do. Should be more user friendly.
I purchased an HTC evo today and I succesfully transfered some music to the evo. But I cant manage to play h264, mp4 or mov videos on the phone. where should I place the video files? root, media, create a video folder, or some where else?
I pluged it to my pc today to transfer some videos that i took with it but for my surprise my pc did not recognize it neither did the window poping up appear to asked me if i wanted to use it to charge only, disk drive, htc sync etc I dont know what went wrong cus it used to work fine the other days I also checked the settings and the ASK ME option is checked.
I've been trying to get a couple episodes of weeds on my DX (great show btw) and I've been having trouble with the playback. I used this guide exactly to convert them .How to convert videos and transfer them to the Motorola DROID X - Know Your Cell.The quality of the videos is great and so is the sound, its just in high "action" areas of the video its pretty choppy and laggy. One thing I should point out is that the videos original files are smaller than the droids highest resolution, but they still look great on the screen.
How do I transfer Windows Media videos to my HTC Evo? Specifically, digital copy that comes when you buy a Blu-Ray movie. The problem seems to be the codec. I used handbrake to when converting but when I tried it, phone said it couldn't play this video. No reason or error code.
