How Do I Save a Video From My Zmodo Camera?

If you own a Zmodo camera, you may be wondering how to save the video footage it captures. Fortunately, saving videos from your Zmodo camera is a quick and easy process. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to save a video from your Zmodo camera using two different methods.

Method 1: Saving Videos from the Zmodo App

The first method we’ll cover is saving videos directly from the Zmodo app. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Zmodo app on your smartphone or tablet.
  2. Select the camera that has the footage you want to save.
  3. Tap on the “Playback” option at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Select the date and time range for the footage you want to save.
  5. Tap on the video clip you want to save.
  6. Tap on the “Save” button in the bottom right corner of the screen.

You can find your saved videos in your phone’s gallery or camera roll. The file will be saved in MP4 format, making it easy to share with others if needed.

Method 2: Saving Videos from a MicroSD Card

If you have a microSD card installed in your Zmodo camera, you can also save videos directly to it. Here’s how:

  1. Power off your Zmodo camera.
  2. Remove the microSD card from your camera and insert it into your computer or laptop using an SD card adapter.
  3. Navigate to the “Record” folder on your microSD card and locate the video file you want to save.
  4. Copy and paste or drag and drop the file onto your computer’s desktop or another desired location.
  5. Power on your Zmodo camera again.

Note that if your camera is set to overwrite old footage, the video you want to save may have been deleted from the microSD card. In this case, you will not be able to save the video using this method.


Saving videos from your Zmodo camera is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. Whether you choose to save videos directly from the Zmodo app or from a microSD card, having access to your footage can give you peace of mind and help keep your home or business secure.
