I was able to record 43 minutes before it stopped, and that was due to lack of storage space. I have over 9GB of free space, so presumably the only limitation is the free space you have on your phone. I can't be sure of this though. YMMV

I'm agree with @Joe, But don't forget your have two limitations, your mobile free space (+1 @Joe), and your battery level! If you have 1TO free Space, if your max battery recording for 1 hour, you don't recording more than 1 hour...

I visited that site on my Nokia Lumia 920. It did not show the player to me too so I went back to Internet Explorer 11 where I can emulate that I'm visiting the website with a Windows Phone 8. The site opened and the video too. I right clicked it and it did show the flash player option. As everyone know Windows Phone does not support flash player for ...

There is nothing built into the phone, and I don't see any app that provide it either. There are apps that work with photos, but I don't see one for video. So it looks like you need to sync the device with your computer and edit there. Live Movie Maker is a free offering from Microsoft that will let you do this.

Services like OneDrive, Dropbox and Box have their own dedicated Windows Phone apps for uploading and downloading files. Not all cloud services support Windows Phone but more and more are as time goes on. Box OneDrive Dropbox

If you're referring to the "share..." menu for 3rd party applications, it's completely up to the individual application if it'll compress the data prior to it being shared or not. However, if you're referring to the automatic upload to OneDrive, you can configure it from settings. See the following screenshots: ("Best quality" is uncompressed)

Your computer is missing a "codec" to decode the video data into something viewable. Windows 7 and 8 come with a lot of these codecs out-of-the-box, so apart from protecting yourself from security threats such as worms and malware, that may be another reason to upgrade (you should seriously consider this option). As a more immediate solution, the open-...

Built-in Player The phone's built-in video player, which is used to play videos on IE and other apps, doesn't have a seek mode like you'd expect. The Next and Previous are actually used to skip forward and backwards within a clip. The only problem is that the buttons appear to skip a fixed amount of time, so if you're watching a short 15 second clip from ...

UPDATE: Now this has been confirmed on WPCentral article: (On WP8.1) enabling the ‘Best Quality’ option under ‘backup to OneDrive’, the high resolution images are rightly saved to your OneDrive Camera roll. According to some comments on Uservoice.com it has been addressed in Windows Phone 8.1. Hi resolution photos are reportedly syncyng out of the box ...

Microsoft recently came out with a file explorer for Windows Phone 8.1 called Files. It is pretty straightforward to use and if will show you files that don't otherwise show up in the "Video" app. You can also play videos from within the "Files" app. You can also move files around to appropriate folders so that they show up in the "Video" app.

Update : The second method was found helpful by the author, so try it first. You can share your video using the following steps Method 1 : From inside whatsapp Open whatsapp Click on the attach icon. Select documents in the list. Now the "Choose an app screen will appear". Choose Files app. Browse to the folder and select the video file. Method 2 : From ...

To be able to explain what is happening, allow me to go in to a little bit of background as to how Windows Phone handles media files. When you drag and drop files from your computer on to the phone, while it may appear that you are creating an identical structure on your phone, there is in fact more processing taking place in the background. When you ...

Edited: Original answer replaced after further clarification of question. Windows Phone OS itself will only play certain types of video (as Zain states above) One thing I can add is that you can take your existing videos and re-save them as a .mp4 or .wmv using Windows Live Movie Maker (free). This will save them in a format playable by the phone....

You can't do this natively, but there are 3rd party apps you can download that offer this. If my memory serves me, I believe EasyTube is one.

No, transferring files over bluetooth is not possible. This is requested for as a feature for newer releases of the OS. If you have an unlocked phone, you can use the DFT BT File Transfer utility to send files over bluetooth.

Windows Phone Apps are using isolated storage which is hidden from normal users as well as other applications. So you can't find the files in isolated storage or can't explore with any other apps.

Windows Phone generally supports: 3GP, 3G2, WMV, MP4, M4V, AVI, MOV files that use H.263, VC1, MPEG-4 Pt 2 or H.264 codecs. Depending on individual phone model (and therefore processor), some phones will support differing maximum resolutions, etc.

It is not possible to replace the default video player in IE or other system apps - neither by the user nor the developer. You can launch a specific video app from your own app as a dev, but that's all for now. You can always post suggestions to http://windowsphone.uservoice.com

Your phone can also upload videos to OneDrive, but it needs WiFi, you cannot do it over a mobile connection. To enable video upload to OneDrive (if it's not already enabled), do the following: Open the Photos app Tap the "..." icon to open the app bar and tap on "settings" Scroll down to "Auto upload" and tap on OneDrive Under Videos, select the "Best ...

Microsoft just released a YouTube version (3.2.0.0) and one of many features is upload videos. Just open the app and in the top left corner you add your account. After that you can see the upload option. You can find the app here: http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=dcbb1ac6-a89a-df11-a490-00237de2db9e Edit Sorry, Google had black listed the app and now ...

No you can not send image if you do not have an app (which is only avaliable for DEVELOPER unlocked phones, i believe)


2

You can not do this natively. However, I don't think there is any reason why an app couldn't be created to do so. It would be a bit tricky, but could be done. That being said, I look through the marketplace and didn't see anything that would do that. If you have some developer friends, perhaps that can put something together for you.

Unfortunately it is not currently possible and you will have to embed the subtitles using a method such as this.

The container is one thing and the codec another. Here you can see the official list of file formats and codecs supported. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff462087(VS.92).aspx

One option you could use, would be to upload them to OneDrive (or a similar service) - there is a native OneDrive app, and that should be able to launch the video when it is in a supported format.


2

The Windows Phone only supports certain video formats. I don't know all of them (wmv is one of the supported formats), but you can play videos of those supported types from OneDrive. For example, if you were to upload a wmv file to OneDrive you'd be able to play it from the OneDrive app.

The volume of audio and video played on your phone depends on the volume of the file itself (see technical details here). For example, you might play a video on YouTube and then a similar video on Vimeo with different maximum volumes. Having said that, it is not impossible that there may be a problem with your phone speaker. Test this out by transferring a ...

You will have to use a workaround to do this: instead of trying to saving the video itself, forward the message containing the video to your email. Then download it on your computer and sync it back to your phone (through OneDrive, the Windows Phone app, or File Explorer). You are not alone in wanting this feature. There are 3 posts that have been created ...

I don't own a Lumia 820 but this calculation shown be a good guide for how much time you can record. According to the Lumia 820 specs on the Nokia website, the main camera records at 1080p with a frame rate of 30 fps. I assume these are the "standard settings" that you refer to. Assumptions: compression ratio for the video recorded is 60:1 Calculation: ...
