Problems Accessing Video Library

Post by Dubbedown » Sat Apr 13, 2019 2:10 am

Every time I try to access video list the app keeps crashing and restarting. Is this a known bug or should I delete and reinstall?

Using latest iOS on iPhone XR...

This can be an issue with too many videos in photo library. I have seen that access to media library can generate crashes if one has hundreds of clips stored. Try to disable access to Photo library in iOS‘s Settings. LapTimer will store overlaid videos in LapTimer‘s documents area (instead of Photos) for this configuration.

Please change the title of this thread. It should point readers to a specific problem, not “we are all doomed“. ;-)

Thanks, and in a scenario if I copy videos directly using SD card adapter (via lightning cable), can I then copy the external video to the Lap Timer documents area or does that require iTunes? I would really like to avoid iTunes if possible :)

The SD Card reader will not be allowed to access LapTimer’s sandbox. Videos will always go to Photo app. Try housekeeping the Photo app, crashes can occur as written, but this is rare.
