Uploading Video into Linux
Having shot your masterpiece on your chosen pocket camcorder, connect it to a free USB slot on your Linux PC and switch it on. Most devices have copied Flip and fitted an integrated USB socket into the camera; others may require a cable to be used.
Linux will recognise that a new device has been attached and will ask you what you want to do with it. Below is the dialogue that Fedora displays:
Elect to open the device with the file manager and click "OK". This will display the files on the device, just like another disc:
You can then just open up another file manager window and drag'n'drop the files from the device onto your hard disc:
Once you have copied the files you want, you can delete them from the camcorder (-only do this once you are sure you have at least one copy) like you would any other file.
To remove the device, right click on the device in the the file manager and select "Safely Remove Drive":
Alternatively, switching the camcorder off normally achieves the same result. Once completed, you can unplug the camera from the USB slot and you are done!
