How to move videos to your Android devices & other mobile devices

If you have an Android device, you can move your MPEG-4(.mp4) files over to the device for use with any video player app that supports MPEG-4. MPEG-4 is officially supported on Android, so any Android device should be able to play these videos with the native video player app.

To move files to your Android device, follow the steps below. Note that there are numerous apps that will enable you to transfer files in different ways, but these steps are universal.

  1. Connect your device to your PC with a USB cable
  2. Put the device into USB storage mode
  3. Look for the new external disk under My Computer in Windows
  4. Move your PlayLater .mp4 recordings to the Android device1
  5. Eject the Android device like you would any other USB storage device2
  6. Disconnect the USB cable

You should now be able to launch the video player app of your choice and find the .mp4 files on your device.

To delete the videos, you can follow the same steps (as described above) to connect your device to your PC and delete the files. You should also be able to use a file manager app, if you have one installed on the device.

1The default location is \Videos\PlayLater (unless you have changed it).
2You may need to exit USB storage mode by tapping the option in the Android notification window shade.

PlayLater Player Help

Thanks for checking out the PlayLater Player. Below are some simple tips on how to use the player. 

How to move videos to your iOS device.

Make sure you have the PlayLater Player installed on your iPhone or iPad. If you don't yet you can get it in the App Store

Once you have the app installed, connect your iOS device to your home's WiFi network and launch the app. Launching the app will automatically pair your device with the PlayLater installation on your PC. This will make it possible for your device to play the videos you have recorded with your PlayLater license. The last thing you need to do is transfer some videos to your device. For this, you will need to connect your device to iTunes.

  1. Launch iTunes
  2. Connect your device with the dock cable or iTunes WiFi Sync1
  3. Select your device from the Devices section on the left-hand side of iTunes
  4. Open the Apps tab along the top of the screen
  5. Find the File Sharing section at the bottom of the Apps page
  6. Select PlayLater under the Apps section
  7. Use the Add... button to transfer some of your recordings2

1 WiFi sync will take much longer than a USB connection, especially when transferring large files.
2 The default location is \Videos\PlayLater (unless you have changed it).

Once your device has finished syncing, your video(s) will be on your device and available through the PlayLater app. You can use these same steps to copy PlayLater .mp4 files to your iOS device for use with a different video player app that supports MPEG-4.

MPEG-4 (.mp4) Files
You can use the same steps as described above to copy PlayLater .mp4 files from your PC to your iOS device for use with a different video player app that supports MPEG-4.

How to remove videos from your iOS device
