Download video

Is there a way to download a video captured by a motion alert?
I have one of my cameras set up for push alerts>video I can view the video on my Android phone, but I would like to download or send the video to my Google drive, so I can look at it a little more efficiently.

You can use Amcrest Surveillance Pro on PC to playback and/or download  a motion detect video file.

Unfortunately I can't access Surveillance Pro from 200 miles away, from my PC. I can open view pro from my phone. I can access another camera I have onsite with my PC remotely, but not the Amcrest units.

In Amcrest View Pro, start playback of video, push record icon and then again to stop recording.  Go to My Saved Files,  push pencil icon at top, select your video, push export (bottom middle icon), and then use your file manager to go to main storage>snapshot>mp4 folder to find your exported video.  You can then send it to Google drive, etc.

I still can't make it work in my phone, probably my phone. I did manage to upload the .dav file to drive download and convert it to .mkv, the quality leaves a lot to be desired. Looking for a better file converter.

If you now have the .dav file on a PC, you could try using Amcrest Smart Play to play it or convert it to .avi format.
