Question :
I would like to watch movie files on a smartphone. Can I transfer movie files to a smartphone using the OI.Share?

Answer:
Yes, you can transfer movie files to your smartphone.
However, it may take a longer amount of time to transfer movies because movie files tend to be larger in size. We recommend you transfer small movie files to a smartphone.

In iOS, iPhone4 / iPad2 / iPod touch ( third-generation ) or former models cannot play movie files on the smartphone because these models do not support full HD movies.
In Android, the application to play movie files should support the same movie file format as the one for the files on your digital camera.
