    It looks highlighted there...just tap on the 1920x1080 to set it.

    You need to have the Phantom connected and turned on to make the setting.

    Any settings made without a connection to the bird will revert back to default. Connect the go app and then make the setting changes and they will stick.

    I can't find the video settings even though connected to my P4. I saw them earlier but now they seem to be gone. I just get a dark screen on my IPad that I use to fly the bird. I am trying to simply go into the DJI editor to view the video and it didn't even record my full flight even though it said it was recording. I am trying to switch from 4K to 1080 or maybe I should even do 720 as it am guessing that is the cause of not recording the entire flight and the small bit it did video is black.

    You probably have the cache setting set too small, limiting how much will be saved in the app, which is low quality anyway. Have you downloaded the full-res video from the microSD card in the camera? And are you still using the card that came with the drone or have you gotten one with a higher capacity? Because if you're using the free one that came with the drone it will fill up quickly at 4K resolution.

    Mr. Salty, that seems to have done the trick. I also reduced the resolution to 1080 from 4K and now I can see the videos on my iPad. I assume since my iPad doesn't play 4K then that is why the screen was black. I didn't realize that the iPad, or my computer, both of which don't play 4K don't then convert on play back to 1080.

    You're welcome! You're right, older iPads won't play 4k video, but I don't know why your computer won't. What kind of computer are you using?
