    so, as everyone knows, the video from the sd card is MUCH better than that of the DJI Go app. So, what i was wondering was if anyone knew the best way to get videos from a pc (where they'd been downloaded from the sd card) to an iphone, while keeping the good quality of video?

    Not sure if there is a better way but here is how i do it. Depending on your video setting, you might have to covert the existing video to something that is compatible with iphone. I am using video converter where i get to choose which device to upload it to (iphone, ipod, ipad...). After conversion, i would upload the converted video to itunes, plug my device and it automatically sync. Still not the same as the original since iphone cannot handle it without downgrading the quality. Still pretty good.

    i dont have an iphone but i thought theres a microsd card adapter to read your memory card on an iphone. then use the vlc app to play it. no need for pc to do anything.
    $30 adapter: Lexar microSD Memory Card Reader with Lightning LRWMLBNL B&H

    i have an android phone. just slip the microsd card in, open VLC or MX Player to play any video format in the known universe. no adapter nor pc needed

    Download this App. Open ITunes and simply drop the videos into the app itself. Done. [​IMG]

    Try Dropbox - I use it to transfer between both

    Sort of... So far, I've only gotten pictures to transfer, not videos. I'll try BitTorrent sync though...

    Videos to big? BTSync is pretty neat. Dropbox is easier to understand.
    Share / Create secret for the P3S folder
    I make sub-folders like.
    P3S/2016/05
    P3S/2016/06
    I upload my flights picts and vids from the Phantom, to one of my computers in my garage via USB, to the folder of the month.
    As soon as they are copied, they start syncing to my work computer and my wife's laptop. These are the only computers I have that can actually play the videos. I think a gig takes a couple of hours from home to work. But the local laptop is much quicker (local network). When its done I have 3 copies of my picts and vids. I then take my old Ipad 2, download which ever vids I want to view. This would then be syncing with all three computers. No mater where I am as long as I have an internet connection. On a tablet or phone you select which files you want. I use btsync for backing up my phones picts. I just load up the sync on phone, check to see if my pictures are backed up. Then I can delete any pictures on my phone. They are backed up to my work computer and my main garage computer. I think you have to install the pro version, but when it comes for payment you will be back to the free version. I just recently did this on old Win 7, that copies files from my store server, then they get synced to one of my garage computers every night at 11:00 pm. Then I have a copy of the store data out of the store, in case of fire.
    I like it because I'm skipping out on the cloud, no monthly fees.
    Yep, I am at work, to type this much detail.

    I'm about to try it. Yeah, the reason I only did photos was because the videos were too big...

    I'll let you know how it goes!
