There are essentially three ways of capturing video and storing it on the Streak:
  1. Shoot video on the Streak using the camera function. To turn on the camera, press and hold the Camera button on the top edge of the Streak OR open the Applications screen and touch the Camera icon. On the camera screen, touch the viewfinder screen to open the on-screen camera controls. Next, in the upper-left corner of the screen, touch Video to switch the camera to video mode.


  2. Download video content from the internet to the Streak. There are numerous on-line sources that download videos. The Applications screen on the Streak has an icon to connect to YouTube, for example.


  3. Copy videos from a computer to the Streak using USB file transfer. When you connect Streak to your computer via USB, this transfer ability will become available. Normally, videos are stored on the micro-SD card in the the Camera folder which is within the DCIM folder.

    Note:
    When Streak is in USB file transfer mode, it will not be able to shoot or playback video on the Streak itself.
