Hey @Ace2Decoder! We know how concerning it can be to not be able to access your synced media on your phone to share you moments in VR. We don't want that for you, so let's try some other steps to see if we can get this resolved as quickly as possible! Please try the following:
If you're still running into problems with downloading your synced media, please reach back out as we'd love to keep looking into more steps! Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time!
I also have this problem with file synchronization. None of the tips above helped me. From your last comment I understood that synchronizing files larger than 1mb over wifi is not possible. But in fact yesterday I was able to synchronize several videos over 100mb over wifi. Today, I spent a lot of time, but I could not repeat the algorithm of my yesterday's actions. It's very confusing!
The interface is misleading. In the mobile app, I see icons of synchronized videos, but when I try to open them, I see a wifi icon with a "!" sign. If you say that synchronization of large files is not possible, why do I see these files in the mobile application, and why does the file manager of the glasses say that the file is synchronized?
The interface gives absolutely no hints as to what is happening with the file - whether there is some kind of synchronization process, whether it is already completed, whether there are any file size limits, or whether there is an error. It seems like such a small thing to add process notifications. But it gives such important feedback from the system.
Thank you for your patience and for sharing your insight with this issue. I would love to get this into the hands of the right people, but to make sure the information makes its way.
Hey @xdcalamrixd. We wouldn't want you to have to miss out on content, so I'd be glad to help out.
To start off, does your media not show up at all, or does it show any specific errors?
Could you answer the following:
I'll be looking forward to your update!
Hi again @chEEse165, can you try checking the file size of the video from your headset storage?
To do so:
We do want to remind you that if the file is larger than 1 megabyte, the only way to transfer the file is to transfer it from headset to a PC.
We hope this information was helpful!
