Question: Managing AVI files from SD card in the field on iPhone
Cameras in the field (no high speed cellular access for cloud storage) that record short video clips and save as AVI format (no ability to change the codec).
I bought the Apple SD card reader and it will allow me to import.
I've researched and found some apps that do AVI to MPEG conversion but can't figure out how to do it locally on the iphone.
ie: If I could setup a folder with the new ios11 files capability and then point an AVI to MPEG "app" to that folder to do the conversion would be nice.
Now I'm having to bring the SD cards home or take the Mac in the field (not preferred when my iPhone is with me), load the files, and play back with VLC.
I found the VLC app but it doesn't seem to be able to play the files from the local "files" folder on iOS assuming I could figure out how to load them in the local "files" storage from the SD card using the apple card reader.
Any thoughts on how to get this to work?
I wish the cameras would just save in MPEG.
