Where on the ZTE Open SD card do I put videos

I loaded an mp4 video on the SD card, but the OS doesn't see it. So I thought, wrong format and I converted the video to OGG Theora format, but the OS still doesn't see it. Is there a specific place on the SD card where videos go? Does the video have to be scaled to small format?

Re: Where on the ZTE Open SD card do I put videos

possibly, all my videos are <70Mb each.

Its really confusing and I do hope they give a clear criteria about this. This reminds me of palm days, whose webOS (quite similar to firefox os) always has trouble seeing some videos for variety of reasons, even thought it claims to support "mp4, h.264". lol

Hi!

May I ask where you placed the video on the microSD card? (In a folder, name of folder).

Thanks!

I had the similar problem previously, I loaded my video into the "video" folder.

I think its because the video is too large, I re-coded the videos to a size of 720x416 in h.264/aac, and the system now sees them.

I tried a "Video" folder, the "Download" folder, the "DCIM" folder and then without a folder. None of that worked. But I see now that the size might be a problem. The video was >800 px across. I'll resize it and try again. Thanks for the advice.

I reformatted the video to 720px across and copied to the SD card. It still doesn't show up. It's an MP4 file.

Mp4 should be fine, how big is the video in mb?

It's 875 mb. It's a two hour movie. It's probably too big.

not for me. Seriously, i don't think that page helps any end users. This specific question really can use some clarification, if there is limitation(s), spilling them out will only help users.

I have no problem reformatting my videos to meet the criteria, I do have problem when I don't know what criteria I should be targeting.

It can't be that difficult, can it?
