While the device when mounted (
/Volumes/FLIPVIDEO) has a DCIM directory that has the standard video subfolder(s) 100VIDEO. Inside there are all the .MP4 files that work as-is with the Mac.
While the FlipShare seems to be over kill for accessing files in this directory, I encourage anyone with this device to go open Terminal and take a peek at your root directory. Yes, your root directory.
$ ls /
You’ll find a file,
/logFile.xsl there, which appears to take an XML file for FlipShare and convert it into an HTML file.
My question is this: Why is FlipShare installing user files to the root directory? This is a horrible practice, most certainly a violation of Apple recommendations, and it’s down right tasteless in Unix parlance.
Cisco, you know better than this. Come on…! Fix this.
