XMEye


There are three ways to save footage from your camera to your phone. These three methods are the same for both IOS and Android.


Method 1


While watching the live feed of the camera click the video camera icon indicated on the image below, this will then start counting up in seconds. After at least 4 seconds have passed press the button again and it will save the period of time between your two button presses.



Method 2


This method is very similar to method 1 but instead of capturing a specific moment from the live video we do so from a recording.


1) Press the home icon underneath the live feed of the camera.



2) On the menu select Remote Playback.


3) You will now be presented with a timeline across the screen which shows you all of the recordings on your device. Scroll through the timeline until you find a bit of footage you want to save and, as in Method 1, press the Video Camera icon to start the clip and press it again to stop the clip.


Method 3


1) Press the home icon underneath the live feed of the camera.


2) On the menu select Record Download.


3) The app will now show a list of all the clips that are saved on your camera. You have two ways to select clips from here:


By File - Tick the box next to any recording that you wish to save and press the Download button in the top right as shown below.



By Time - Select a time that you wish to save the videos from, this is the end time you select and the app will select the previous half an hours worth of recordings before that point, then when you press Record Download at the bottom of the page it will download the relevant files.


Viewing & Sharing Downloaded Files
