    I am not sure how you are starting the cam? If you are using curved paths in Litchi, you can't start Cam by Litchi on the way, you need to set a parameter in settings to auto start cam. That way you will have cam working and whatever you capture will be saved on SD card.

    Are you able to record on SD card with DJI Go app?

    You need to pop the Phantom's SD into a computer. The files will be there, whether recorded with DJI Go or Litchi. I think what you're referring to is the cached video that DJI Go saves on your device during flight. Those cached vids are very low quality and not what you really want.

    and yes i am able to record with dji go i can also see it in the gallery. but if this is just a low quality video of the "real video " that is saved on the sd inside my drone then it could be possible that litchi just can't give me some low quality video of my video/photo

    You need to connect a micro USB cable from the camera mount (check around the sides) to your computer and it will bring up the folder for the SD card. (Note that this needs to be done with the Phantom powered on!) That folder will contain all of your photos and videos. As far as I know you cannot retrieve those files through your phone.

    As for the cached files that the DJI Go app will store to your phone/tablet, but not Litchi, I think that there is an option somewhere in the Litchi menus to store cached files. I think that there is a 10 limit max though...
