In this post, we will be walking you through the process of exporting camera footage to a USB stick directly from your recorder(as opposed to from the iVMS-4500 computer software, which will be covered in another post
NOTE: If your interface looks different than what you see in the photos below, try this article instead.
Again – DO NOT UNPLUG YOUR USB STICK UNTIL EVERYTHING IS DONE TRANSFERRING.
Step 14: Once the files have been transferred, you can just go ahead and unplug the USB stick. Plug it into your computer now, and drag the video(MP4) files into VS player. Play a couple to make sure they transferred without issue.
**IMPORTANT** – Whoever you give this USB stick to will also need a copy of the VS player software, or else they will not be able to view the files. We can easily do this now that the USB stick is plugged into the computer. Simply follow these steps:
• First off, leave open the USB stick directory where the video files are in.
• Follow the article that shows you how to install the player until you get to Step 8. (Alternately, you can go to the downloads folder and grab the installer directly if you’re comfortable doing that. Otherwise, follow the above instruction.)
• Once you get to Step 8, instead of double-clicking the VSPlayer file, Click on it, and hold down the mouse key. Do not finish the click. Drag the file to the USB stick directory and release the mouse in the folder where the video clips are. You will see the file in the folder now.
• Let the person know who you give the stick to that they will need to double-click on this VSPlayer icon to install the player themselves. If they seem unconfident in their computer abilities, you can point them to the article above by sharing the link with them. Again, without this program, the videos will be unviewable!
