I saw one similar question back in 08/2018, but I’m at a loss since the answer doesn’t seem to fit the current situation in the app.
When I tap the “Record” button under a camera, then stop the recording, it says “Saved successfully”, but for the life of me I cannot find it anywhere on my Samsung Note 9. There is nothing in the DCIM nor Camera folders, and the app doesn’t tell me where it’s saved, nor does it allow for setting a “Save” location.
When I save a 12-sec video, it goes to a standard “camera” folder and my gallery app has no problem seeing it. So I should not need to download even another app to do what is SOP for any other app. You’d think (There I go, thinking again. They don’t pay soldiers to think.) they would all go to the same place.
Or, give setting option to tell the app where videos go.
Interestingly the description about how record works for the SD card at least (didn’t notice a description for live view) says “Manually recorded videos and photos are saved to your phone’s photo gallery”. So either this is a bug, or the descriptions in the online help need to be updated.
@WyzeGwendolyn – Is there a way to call Matthew’s attention to this (I couldn’t find an address for him), or do we go thru you?
The word “Gallery” has been a point of contention for me ever since I started using Android. The functionality of the gallery app on Android is often misunderstood. It searches the entire phone for photo and video media. So, they’re not “in the gallery app”, they’re somewhere in a folder on the phone where the gallery app finds them. A common misconception is that media files are duplicated, but they aren’t, it just appears that way because the gallery app finds them where the other apps store them.
