Video file too large to copy to cameraroll

Post by johmei » Thu Aug 01, 2013 2:01 pm

Hi,

I have an interesting problem. I would like to export the full length video from a long stint. The video file is 5,9GB on my 16GB iPhone5. The problem I run into is that I cannot make enough space for the video to copy (move) 5,4GB free and I have only left apps smaller than 30MB. Is there a way to really move a video to camera roll, deleting the file in the Laptimer app? Or a way to export such a large file to my computer bypassing the copy process? I was thinking about purchasing more space at iCloud but is not really impressed with iCloud and really doubt that it will be able to handle a file of this size at all.

Or are there any other way to free up space than using Settings - Usage and deleting as much as possible.

Thanks,

Johan

Try iExplorer to move the file directly from LapTimer Documents folder to your desktop. For the future, please make sure to record shorter sessions, or at lower resolution - a 16GB iPhone is filled very fast. Once you fill it completely (LapTimer will stop some 100KBs before the device is filled up), you run into deadlocks like this.

Thanks for the advice. I actually found a similar yet faster and free application called iFunbox. Works like a charm! =)
I'm heading out for a 2 day track event this weekend and will bring a computer for downloading video when I get time. I mostly use VGA resolution but the iPhone 5s capture some great HD..too bad there are no memory card options. Might have to migrate to Android for HLT eventually. =/

Recommendation for any video activity with smartphones is 32 or 64GB, 16 is simply not enough.
Good to know about the iFunbox option, thanks!

Do you still get the data overlay when removing the video from the HLT folder with iFunBox?

No, there is nothing left to overlay... You need to do that first, lap by lap.
