Download video attachment from email

Post by parrori1 » July 24th, 2011, 8:21 pm

Where does the message wind up? It isn't in "videos". I was able to view it straight from email but was unable to determine where it went when downloaded.

The video simply remains in Mail until you tap and hold down your finger on the attachment icon, you'll see a Save Video dialog appear. Clicking Save will then put it into your Camera Roll library in the Photos app.
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.

No, it's not in there. I viewed it with movie player, but it wasn't saved to it either.

Okay, you can't save things to movie player. Movies are saved to the Camera Roll inside Photos, just like picture files.

When you're viewing your mail on iPhone, you should see an attachment icon like this:

Tap and hold down (do not lift up) on this icon until you see this:

Tap Save Video, then go to your Photos app and it should be there. If you do not see either of the things in the above two pictures, then you're doing something wrong, or I am misunderstanding the question.

I guess I should not have used movie maker to view it. It didn't show a "save" option, just an "open in" option. I assumed it was like the Azul app which saves the videos to Azul when you open it.

Thanks for your help.

Attachments are saved to the folder according to preferences. In Mail.app that would be in the "General" tab.
