Eye-Fi cards that support wireless video uploads will upload video files to YouTube, Flickr, SmugMug, Picasa Web, Phanfare, Facebook, Gallery3, and Photobucket.
In order for an Eye-Fi card to upload a video file, that file must:
- be in the DCIM or MP_ROOT* folders or one of these folders' sub-folders.
- be in the PRIVATE/AVCHD/BDMV* folder or sub-folder.
- be less than 2GB in size
- be one of the supported formats listed below.****
|.3gp**||Third Generation Partnership Project|
|.asf||Advanced Streaming Format|
|.asx||Advanced Stream Redirector|
|.avi||Audio Video Interleave|
|.mts***||High-Definition MPEG Transport Stream|
Important notes about video transfers
* Special folders
Only X2 cards can upload videos stored in the MP_ROOT or PRIVATE/AVCHD/BDMV folders.
Files in the PRIVATE folder are not deleted via Endless Memory.
** About .3GP files
.3GP files are created by Android devices. Only the Eye-Fi mobile apps will transfer these files (not Eye-Fi cards). Eye-Fi Helper treated .3GP files as the RAW format prior to version 3.4. If you are running an old version of the Eye-Fi software, verify that you have a destination set for RAW media when transferring from your Android device.
*** About .MTS files
Only Eye-Fi X2 cards transfer .MTS files.
Your computer may require special software to properly display .MTS, depending on your computer's operating system. This is especially true for Mac OSX and Windows XP users, which do not natively support .MTS files. Some Eye-Fi Users have suggested the use of ClipWrap to make using AVCHD files easier on a Mac and VLC on Windows XP.
Eye-Fi cards do not support Selective Share and Selective Upload for .MTS (AVCHD) files.
**** Video formats supported by different devices
Not all audio-video formats uploaded by the Eye-Fi card are supported on all devices, so check with your hardware or software manufacturer for details.
Apple iPhones and iPads may reject video uploads in unsupported formats; check with Apple to verify that the video recorded by your camera is compatible with your Apple device.
For the most up-to-date information on supported video formats, visit Apple's website and view the TV and Video section of the Tech Specs page for your Apple device.
Recording HD videos
Shooting HD content on some cameras may require a particularly fast memory card. 4 GB and 8 GB Eye-Fi X2 cards are Class 6 rated, capable of 6MB/second minimum write speeds, and ideal for photos and standard-definition video. Shooting HD in some cameras may require Class 10 or higher; our 16 GB Pro X2 is Class 10 rated.
If you are shooting HD video and receive errors that your Eye-Fi card is not fast enough, try lowering the video settings. You can also try formatting your Eye-Fi card in your camera before shooting.
Warning: formatting your Eye-Fi card will erase all files on it, so be sure to upload or copy your files from the card first!
