Download the video in MPG format to iCloud photo library

Is it possible to download a video file, MPG to a Mac to iCloud photo library?

I stopped using iCloud photo library on the Mac due to low disk space, however I always use iCloud photo library on other devices and would like to have the video available here. I tried to use the web interface to iCloud by using Safari, but I get a message that the format is not supported

I guess I could convert the file in another format, however, I do not want 3rd party applications on my Mac, and I worry about compromising video quality. Is the other way to do this? Could using Photos (1.5) on the Mac and the activation of my photo stream get the video to appear in the photo library of iCloud?

As we told you MPG is not a format alternative for ICPL

  • Why doesn't my realplayer download the video in mp4 format

    Why realplayer does download that videos in mp4 instead of flv formats please?

    I'm having exactly the same problem with mine, I used real player/download from windows 98 and since Ive had on Win 7 Ultimate, it works fine, it downloads in MP4 or FLV format (depending on the video) until about a week ago. I downloaded videos on You Tube for some reason, they are all uploaded in MP4, and when I went to watch later, (I think it was actually VLC who told me) but it says that 2 of them had no video in them and just like you, Real player will not play them, VLC will be no more , or FLV player, Windows Media, DivX or QuickTime will not... So im starting to think that maybe it's a problem to You Tube?

  • Removal of old photos of the iPhone with iCloud photo library on

    I had a 6 128 GB iPhone for a couple of years and I bought a Macbook Pro about a year ago. I've been running iCloud photo library - but not Photostream - and without really look deep into the settings exactly, when I take pictures on my phone they usefully automatically found in the Photos app on my macbook. When I remove photos from my phone, they also seem to disappear too from my mac.

    Recently, in an arrangement of happy until I started running low on space on my phone. My question is, is my library in 'mirror' between my devices? IE if I say, delete all my photos from 2012 to 2014 my phone, they are removed from my macbook too? Obviously, it would be disastrous.

    I guess my question is, what are the best settings to have a situation where my photos will be driven by my phone to my laptop, but then stored on my laptop indefinitely?

    Any help is appreciated.

  • How to remove photos from my iPhone without deleting icloud photo library?

    My iPhone is full and I wanted to remove some photo to release some spaceso I supported the up to iCloud and I started to remove photos. ***? They are endangered to iCloud! Now, they're just gone. It's crazy! Image capture you can import to everywhere, but the function "delete after importing" seems to have disappeared. I'm sure this question has been beat to death, but how you remove photos from their phone without removing them from their photo library iCloud?

    So frustrating.

    Does anyone know of a solution to this?

    iCloud is a synchronization system, not just external storage.  Once you turn on photo library all you do with a photo is on ALL of your devices (including remove them).  See the last section in this article on how to recover pictures that you inadvertently deleted:

  • When I click on "download video" on a TED talk, the video plays right outside, but I would like to download the video to play offline how can I do this?

    If I try 'right click' (i.e. holding the button for a few seconds) the button 'Download video', the only result is that the text of the button is selected. So, I don't know how to download the video for offline reading in my Android phone 4.2.2.

    "right click" (that is, for a long time by tapping the button) 'Download video' has not helped, but I have now managed to download the video just by 'clicking' (that is, threads) this button. I think that it is perhaps due to a recent update of Firefox for Android. Thank you for your time!

  • ICloud photo library is not download all of the images on my Mac or iPhone

    I created iCloud library when it was made public, and it has worked very well, apart from the fact that there are about 100 images (out of my 5 k library) who download any Photos on my MacBook Pro and my iPhone 6. have a problem where, for some reason, quite a number of pictures in my iCloud photo library appear under vacuum with a symbol of little cloud instead of the image. I assumed it was always download files in the background, however, this has been the case for weeks and there is no activity indicated. I restarted my iPhone, my iPad and my Mac and did all sorts of other troubleshooting ideas, but they seem to refuse to download. Help! I have all the latest updates installed.

    You have "Optimize Storage" activated on your iPhone or Mac?

    Have you checked, it makes the photos have been uploaded to iCloud?  Open the to the iCloud web interface and check if the pictures in question have the same problem on iCloud.

    Added: I see the white rectangle with the cloud icon, every time I edit a photo. The icon turns white, until the modified version has been downloaded to iCloud and synchronized at the back.  If you are that many of these clouds icons seeng a great prt library is not yet synchronized.

    Will there be a progress bar in the iCloud preferences on your Mac?

    I'm unable to download the video driver for an Aspire 7540, because the download is infected. Who can be contacted to alert their site Acer seems to have infected files? I checked for a link to the webmaster but could not find one.

    Hi Simon,.

  • Why can't I play the videos to M4V format bought in iTunes in windows media player

    Original title: M4V format

    Why can't I play the videos to M4V format bought in iTunes in windows media player. Thank you

    If the video does not the restrictions of DRM (Digital Rights Management), so you can see just by changing the .mp4 extension allows it to be played in Windows Media Player, but if Apple added restrictions to the file DRM then you will be limited to such players as apple deems suitable to be used, probably iTunes or Quicktime.

  • iCloud Photo Library Download stuck after changing icloud account

    This is FYI if someone of another encounter the same problem, I've had.

    My daughter Mac and iphone used a common icloud account that has been set up for the family some time ago.   She had a lot of photos stored in icloud, through Photos.  We decided to create account it with his own icloud and itunes recently.

    The first question icloud was in its disconnection from the old account.  The message that you will lose pictures and videos that are not fully downloaded to the Mac we fear for a few days because there is no easy way that we could find to determine in advance what photos and videos were not fully downloaded.  So, we tried for these days download all photos and videos but did not seem to make any progress.  After a few days, we have bet that we could continue with disconnection and risk losing the photos and videos they would be still in icloud under the old account.  Then we saw on the screen depending on who told us that we will lose only 3 photos and 1 video - too bad that the screen has not come earlier.  So we disconnected.

    The second question icloud came after connected to the new icloud account and tried to get his Mac photos to sync up to pictures of icloud.  We spent 2 or 3 days waiting for them to update and 2 separate calls with Apple support but no resolution.  There were two additional things, I noticed: 1) the iCloud library update bar (under preferences/Photos/account) remained empty (i.e., no green progress bar) for 2 or 3 days indicating no progress has been made and 2) next to the heading 'ICloud photo library' was the message in red that I had 29 (then 28 then 27) days to download my photos to icloud prior to their removal.  It made me suspicious that it was a reference to the photos under the old account and I was connected to the new account.  So, today, I bet and disconnected the new icloud account and once again had the same 3 photos and 1 video message would be deleted, that I accepted.  Then I signed in to the new account icloud, got informed that I had too little space on the new account to all the pictures and videos to download, I opted for more space (paying), end connection, then pictures/properties/account and viola, iCloud library update bar now give me 1) a number of pictures to download and green 2) in the progress bar.

    So, to summarize:

    1. If you're worried about losing your photos (or other files) If you disconnect your icloud account, note 1) you should be able to recover if you reconnect to the account and 2) that there is a window that will tell you how much you will lose (even if have never heard you those who), and
    2. If the synchronization ends up with no apparent progress made (especially no count of how many must be synchronized or no visible 'green' progress) then a possible solution is to disconnect, and then reconnect to your icloud account.

    Don't forget to let Apple know it so that they can improve their service to the future-

    If I use iCloud photo library to share photos on my Mac, make the stay of the files full original size on my Mac or they stored in the cloud?

    Thank you!

    The photos full size will always go to the cloud. They also remain on (or download) your Mac depends on if 'Download this Mac originals' or 'Optimize Mac storage' is ticked in Photos > Preferences > iCloud. If it is enabled, it also depends on how much storage is available on your Mac.

  • can I switch from icloud photo library app photos without losing the photos

    I have my settings so that all my photos have been removed from iTunes and are now accessible via the iCloud library, but I don't like the way they are stored in all THE PICTURES rather than in their respective albums that I spent hours and hours of sorting.

    If I drag iCloud photo Library, everything returns to how it was (basically, my photos will appear on my iPad in their albums?)

    The images are not stored in iTunes, so I don't know what you removed and hence. Your photos and your videos are stored and organized in the Photos app, on your computer and on your iDevices. iCloud library is how they are synchronized between all of your devices. This includes your albums. If you don't see any albums on your iPad, maybe not looking in the right place? One caveat is that you have nested folders.

    You can disable iCPL on your iPad and then return to using iTunes to sync photos, but like I said, you should see your albums with iCPL.
