**Note: Coach’s Eye supports iOS compatible video formats–h.264 encoded in .MOV, .MP4 & .M4V containers. See your device’s technical specs for more information about supported video.**
First, open Dropbox app on your laptop or computer.
Select the Dropbox directory you’d like to place the file in and then drag or copy / paste the video you’d like to import.
After the video has finished uploading to Dropbox, grab your iOS device and launch the Dropbox app.
Tap the “Dropbox” icon in the lower left corner of the screen, then select the directory you uploaded the video to.
Locate the video and tap it once to begin downloading the video to your device.
Tap the “Favorites” star icon at the bottom of the screen.
After the video has downloaded to the device, the “Share” icon in the lower right corner of the screen will become enabled. Tap the Share icon to open the sharing action sheet.
Tap the “Save Video” button from the Dropbox sharing action menu. This will save the video to your Camera Roll in the Photos folder.
Next, open the Coach’s Eye app and tap the import button to add the video to your library from the Camera Roll. (An alert will display on success or failure to import. Failure to import is the result of video formats incompatible with iOS devices).
To review the footage simply find the imported video and tap it, then select the Analyze button.
That’s it, you’re ready to analyze and break down your video. Now you can use the amazing drawing tools, voice narration and fine grained scrubbing that make Coach’s Eye an extremely powerful, but easy to use instant video analysis tool that’s always in your pocket!
