I am attempting (unsuccessfully) to use dropcopy to copy video files from my ipad to my iMac.

I have dropcopy on the ipad and the imac.

On the ipad I select the video I wish to transfer. A small preview window appears, with the words \"Choose Video\" greyed out at the top of the preview window.

Why cant I select the video to transfer to the iMac?

I have an Ipad mini running latest version of OSX, same with the Imac, running DropCopy v1.88.

Looking forward to your reply, excellent app.

You can only transfer videos that you have created yourself - not ones that you downloaded from iTunes or elsewhere. That's part of Apple's own restrictions (presumably because of copyright issues). However, we have also reorganized sending pictures and videos as of DropCopy version 4.91, which puts Photo Library access right on the primary page with with drop zone. That should make it easier to access pictures and videos.
