    You can cut a piece of the video and save it as a whole. Then you also have an option to save it to you photos.

    Play around with it, you'll get it.

    What were you viewing it on?
    4k video takes lots of power.
    Make sure you have enough free memory - Firefox and Chrome have nasty memory holes.

    What are you viewing it on? What program are you using to view it? Is this uncompressed video or is it edited and compressed. Makes a big difference.

    Look and see if you need to update the firmware - if it's a new phantom for sure u will need to update the battery firmware as well.. (VIDEOS TO PHONE) --- when u are in the Dji go app press the play button on lower right had side ️ and it will take u to the menu off all videos & pics .. Select your video and then ️ button on the lower right hand side. U will see a green line @ the top indicating the process. Hope this helps & get back out there flying!!

    When I finish a flight video I usually poke the sd card straight into the Samsung tablet to preview it. Use VLC Player app. Always runs silky smooth and stunning definition. Then I'll do the same with my laptop and it will sometimes lag... Still using VLC Player but other issues could be at play such as other things in the background taking up processing power.
    If I had tried the laptop first I, like you would be wondering what's up with the video.
    Sometimes it's because I'm streaming direct off the sd card. If I drag/copy the file to the desktop first it usually clears up.
    Try different devices and different players. It's not normally a dodgy video, just a dodgy player.

    Yes that's right. You need to copy the video from the card to the pc. It happens to me as well, I use a iPhone 6. The video format is too high for the phone. Copy via a cable or card reader then you can sync it back to the phone via iTunes.

    Judging from your post I'm going to say it is likely your SD CARD. Some are extremely fast and can transfer the files fast enough to play video without hiccups. Check the card speed. You can obviously get around that by transferring the file to the internal storage on the computer/tablet.
