My grand daughter gave me an iPhone X and although it’s great I’m not taking as many good pictures as my last phone did. Now I have an issue with the accepted file ending for videos- the forum doesn’t accept the video direct from my phone. Is there a particular app that I can download so I can upload my video. I’m an old relic and not particularly computer literate so need an easy explanation please if anyone can help. I can easily upload my photos so its only the video extension that is the problem.

Try sending a video to me direct [email protected] and I will have a look, though I am not very computer savvy myself, but I have time to play about and maybe learn something new!

Like you, I was given an iphone by my niece, it is in a draw in case of emergency, landline cut off etc, I'm not a fan........

I don't think you can add video directly to this site, Jpeg is photo, my bad!

Others that have put videos on here have attached a link to a HOST site where the video is stored, youtube, facebook etc. I assume because file sizes for video storgage is usualy very large?

I don't know whether you have a host site where you keep photos on the internet, if you do then I think you just copy and paste the link into the posting?

Ok thanks Simon . I use Dropbox but I’ve tried to send from there but it didn’t work. For now I will just take pictures

The file attachment on that other post was a .MOV, but it shouldn't matter anyway as it is only a link so plays on dropbox when you click on the link and has nothing to do with the SKF website!

Click on the link to the post above and then click on the link in the thread to see how it should work, but as we all know with these machines it rarely works properly??

I’ve been trying to find what my actual file extension for the video is. I also checked and the amount of mb of the file is very large so I would need to take smaller videos this one is just over a minute and 59 mb I think . I might go back to my trusty Nikon camera and try . I’m sure I’ve used that for videos or failing that I could go back to my older phone . 
Poh well it will give me something to play with next week.

 Thanks for trying Simon.

The file extension on the email you sent me was .MOV, it was 19MB and 1 minute. It mmay be too high resolution so you could try a lesser resolution on the iphone? If you click on settings and scroll down to camera and click on record video and pick a lower resolution (ie my lowest is 720p). Your iphone I expect is much nnewer than mine so it may be a little different? Have a bash................

It’s definitely to do with the file extension name . I changed the settings to 720 but it still isn’t acceptable. I don’t think I can change the extension. It’s just what my iPhone names the videos.

You are right that you cannot change the file extension on the phone. Bit weird though as the other post used dropbox with .MOV and it worked? You are trying to copy/paste the link are you, not the file?

Sounds like you need an "Iphone video to MP4" converter.

Lots of free apps to do that if you just google that phrase above.

I have found the setting on my phone actually already have a format that I can use that will make the video acceptable . So tomorrow I will try a new video. Thanks guys amazing what old mr google can tell you once you know what to ask

Well unfortunately that didn’t work either. I’ve tried the apps but the MP4 format wasn’t accepted. I will just have to take pictures for now and maybe look for my older phone or Nikon camera if I just really want a video. For now I will just get back to shrimp ?

I don't think any video formats are listed on the attachments so I think you have to do a link. If you sed me the link to the dropbox video I will have a go, I have a few ideas????? I will be out of ideas after that though..............

I tried MPEG last night and WebM but they wouldn't download either?

OK, look forward to seeing photos! I have the video, watched it again this morning, but I would need the actual dropbox link to it to go any further, I don't use a HOST service otherwise I could put it on mine and go from there?

I’m not sure how to link it. I’m not very computer literate.

I think you have it sussed now, try clicking on the attached link (unchanged from the one you sent me) and if it works then that is what you do in future!

https://www.dropbox.com/s/3v5eipc0zzgiw08/2021-06-27 16.58.44.mov?dl=0

What a fantastic mixture you have!

Simon

ps let me know if it doesn't work, or you are not sure on something?

Simon when I click on the link it takes me to my Dropbox account and I can see my other files. Will other people see them too? Did you only see the video or the rest of my pictures too if it gives access to all my pictures then I need to remove the link

I clicked on it and it only shows that video, you can probably see more as that site is linked to whatever products/devices you use! It does say login on the right but obviously only you know that, so it is quite safe.

You may want to start another thread to put your videos on so you don't have all this attached!

Simon

ps I can delete the above link if you want me too and you feel better/safer?

      You may end up losing this batch entirely but then you can start completely fresh and get the aquarium set up right for the next batch of shrimp! If you do any large water changes then try and add the new water slowly, either dripper or some other way. You should get yourself a TDS meter (as JayC above), they are cheap and readily available. You should always use a GH tester kit as well with shrimps, if you do the 50% water change that should halve the GH so you should get a reading after that, or if you can get a local fish store to test it for you that will give you an idea of the GH. If your water supply is as hard as it appears it may be you will need to mull over how (or even IF) you want to keep shrimps as that may mean using RO or distilled/bottled water and buying a proper shrimp specific remineraliser? That will be quite expensive but you won't then have to mess about adding crushed coral/eggshells etc, but only you can decide whether you want to do/spend that much etc? If you live somewhere that gets a lot of rain, then you can use rain water? Also, as JayC states, you need to know what you are using/adding to the water and aquarium, ie fertilizers, rocks. Unless you have very exotic plants you shouldn't need any fertilizers. Just as a note, we have come across quite a few experienced fish keeprs that have this sort of start off issues with shrimp. Shrimp are more difficult than fish, and the aquarium and water etc need to be ready and within the required parameters before getting the shrimps. Usually people jump in, get the shrimps before everything is ready/sorted. Hopefully though you will keep at it, or if this lot die you will have another go and we can help you get it sorted?

      These are all classic symptoms of shrimp moulting problems.   Again, another high GH symptom. High GH not only causes harder carapace (shell), but it also makes eggs harder. When the egg is harder the male finds it more difficult to fertilise the eggs.   That's a worry if you can't get a good GH reading because that is going to be most likely issue right now for you.   Because snails don't moult.    If you dont already have a TDS meter, I suggest getting one asap. It's another test to narrow down your water parameters, and not have to trust one test by it's own - in this case the GH test kit. I would wager your water parameter is too high in dissolved minerals - likely from the tap water source, fertiliser dosing and/or any rocks/crushed corals you might have in the tank. To remedy this, you need to start doing water changes with RO, distilled or rain water immediately. I would do a 50% water change with RO water asap. Then look for sources that increase GH in the tank and eliminate it - fertilisers, rocks, crush corals, shells.    It's difficult to save a shrimp who's carapace is already too hard, but hopefully any younger shrimps will benefit from the water change and the reduced GH.   Good luck and keep us updated.

      United States. I have tested my tap water; it yields the same results. GH: ??, KH: 3, pH: 7.8. I cannot say for sure if my GH test is faulty or not, the expiration is until 2023. It's more of a twitching, then stasis. I have one shrimp that's having a hard time balancing itself, but it's swimmerets and mouth keep moving in attempt in getting back up. I allowed it to stick to my sponge filter. The tank is cycled. I used established media. Readings would not show 0 otherwise. I do use EI Dosing, half dosage recommended for a 20 gallon. It has been said on other forums that it does not affect shrimp, but I stopped dosing to isolate variables a week ago. No CO2, that's too costly for me, hah. I drip acclimated the shrimp for 2 hours, 1 drop per second. I tested for copper in my tank, nothing. Funnily enough, my mystery snails in my community tank don't seem too affected by it.

      Sorry to hear you are having a problem! Where are you based in the world? Can you test your tapwater GH/KH/PH? Best to know what the source water is, dechlorinated (if required) before you have ADDED anything. Are you sure the GH test is working and not old, or already activated/contaminated somehow? The other parameters seem ok! If the GH is as ridiculousy high as you say then I expect the shrimps would have problems molting (they may be twitching to get out of the old shell), though generally twitchy behaviour is usually down to some sort of toxic poisoning or the aquarium not being properly cycled? Are you using any plant fertiser or CO2?  Did you drip acclimate the shrimp over many hours before adding them to the aquarium? They are much more sensitive than fish to changes in water parameters etc. You could end up killing more of them by moving them so I would hold off from that at the moment!

      Hello all, I am new to the forum, although experienced at fishkeeping, I am relatively new to shrimpkeeping. Let's start with my issue. I had started a colony of 18 juvenile cherry shrimp (Neocaridina davidi) in a 20 gallon long as of last month. I solely use tap water and change 5% per week. They are the only inhabitants alongside a single juvenile Malaysian trumpet snail. Today the numbers have been reduced to 9. The deaths did not start until the shrimp turned into adults, where they have struggled, twitching as if provoked, becoming lethargic, and eventually flipping over to their side and dying. Only the ones on the verge of death exhibit this behavior, whereas the rest simply graze on as usual. I measured my parameters today - my tank has been established for two months as of now and is densely planted. They have never bred despite being of adult size and having visible saddles. Never an issue with molting. Ammonia: 0 ppm, Nitrite: 0 ppm, Nitrate: 0-5 ppm || pH: 7.8, GH: ??, KH: 3 I cannot get a single good read off API's liquid GH test. I have dropped beyond 30+ and gave up as I knew the numbers were already extreme. The thing is, I need a temporary, inexpensive solution to keep my shrimp safe. I believe by the time I order supplies, the colony would already give. I was planning on moving the colony to a 5.5g, barren with my floating plants and mosses, using just distilled water, Seachem Equilibrium (only GH additive I own) and crushed eggshells (potential source of KH). Possibly crushed coral to substitute for the lack of any real mineral additive. I did not believe that high GH would possibly become a problem, and I am fortunate that the strugglers are still alive. If anyone has a solution to this problem, or approve of my plan of action, please let me know. TIA
