I suggest you ...

Allow Video Share

We have options to share pictures or download them back to our phone but our videos have zero options. Once we upload them to your site, we can't do anything with them. Can you add a share to Facebook or YouTube feature or even download back to our phone? I'm using life cake as storage and have found that I can't get any of the video back to my phone to share with people that don't have a life cake account. Thank you!

    Hi, Tammie! So sorry for the delay in responding to this.

    To download videos, you can download all your original photos and videos via the ‘Download all’ option in Settings on our Website. Just so you know.

    But we will look at downloading individual videos and get back to you!

        I would also like to be able to download videos to share with others who aren't on Lifecake PLEASE.
        Thanks, Julie

        I too vote with Tammy. I’d like to download my grandson’s videos to share. I’m very frustrated by my inability to do so with this app. Please find a way to do this.

        Any update on this? I don't need the pictures from my account just the videos

        "Video Downloader Professional" for Chromium (linux) works fine, but the 'file name' defaults to "Home for your childs story.mp4"

        Completely agree with this video comment. Would be great to get some sort of sharing or downloading arrangement for videos. Many friends don't have lifecake, so would love to send them links to videos.

        I am interested in creating a show including some video clips. Is there a target date sometime soon for this option or should I be looking at an alternative method of getting these videos from the website? I don't have an Android device.

        Would be very much appreciated if you added a feature that enables us to save videos from the Livecake application to camera roll. Also, play videos without having the need to connect to a wifi, 3G, or any other internet connection.
        Many thanks.

        I totally agree with previous posters. I use Lifecake as a way of saving my photos and videos so that I can then free up space on my ipad/iphone for more. I didn't realise when signing up for Lifecake that I would not be able to retrieve my videos without downloading everything I've saved to Lifecake. This seems crazy. Please please make this change!

        Website download would be great. In the meantime I just download to my Android device and then e-mail saved videos to me PC. Long winded but works and would be much appreciated if website download of videos was possible soon.

        @Tammie - why not just share directly from the device you took the video on (presuming it's a smart phone)? Share from gallery instead of Lifecake?

      • Pauline commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'd like to add that having an option to share links to individual videos and photos would be great, rather than just sending the photo via email or sharing through Facebook. There have been so many times I've wanted to share a video to a family member/friend but didn't want to make it public on Facebook. Thank you!

        Like to show the pictures and videos to aunt without internet so would like to download on USB drive? Is this possible?
