4 Ways to Save DJI Cache From iPad
Getting DJI cache access is no hard task. It is as simple as verifying a DJI account. You just need to do a few easy things.
Adding to that, it can be done in 4 easy ways. We have described them in easy words for your convenience. So, let’s go through all 4 options to get the full picture.
Option 1: Using the DJI Go 4 App
You can use the DJI Go 4 app on your iPad to get to the cache. Tap the editor icon at the bottom of the screen from the main screen.
This will bring up a screen with the words “Album” and “Create” at the top. The create mode is loaded by default.
Here you will find the compilations of your recently shot videos. These are cut compilations with added audio.
You can further edit this by using the transfer option. You can also discard and delete them as you wish.
Option 2: Using the File Path
You can also refer to the file path of the cached videos using your iPad.
Open up the “Files” app from your iPad. Then go to the DJI GO 4 folder. You will find a subfolder named Documents. You’ll find a folder called videoCache in there.
For accessing the pictures go to the .MEDIALIBRARY folder under the Document subfolder. You can find all the picture files here.
However, you cannot directly open the picture files. To open that, you need to add .JPG to the end.
In older iPads, the cache may not appear in the “Files”. The DJI cache will show up in the Photos app.
Option 3: Using the Cache During Video Shooting Option
If you turn on “Cache During Video Shooting”, the video is stored locally on your iPad. However, the resolution of the video is low and limited to 720p.
This is the video that was sent to your RC from the P4P. It’s shown on the live view screen of your iPad Pro.
You can find these videos and files using the Go 4 or File path technique.
Option 4: Using DJI Record Audio with Video Cache
If you use the “Record Audio With Video Cache” option, you can access audio and video. Upon pressing the red button to record the video, your iPad Pro will go live.
This will appear on the DJI Go 4 app live view screen. Using this option, you can narrate your flights and add commentary.
However, keep in mind that without a SD card, you can’t enable the cache settings. Because the storage on the DJI drones is miniscule.
So, make sure to go through all the prerequisite before enabling this option.
A gentle reminder about this setting. This cached video will also be 720p quality. You can get the best output if you use 5.8 GHz auto mode.
