Playing and deleting shots with Chromebook

Your Chromebook should be used like a laptop computer with the USB charging cable. The mobile app is not compatible with the Chrome OS, so please always use the cable (not app) for watching your videos.

What video player do you recommend for Chromebook?

For Chromebooks, we recommend the default media player, Video Player. Video Player is the easiest and safest option for viewing your ShotKam videos.

To view your ShotKam videos in Video Player: 

  1. Plug your ShotKam into your Chromebook using our USB charging cable. 
  2. A pop-up will appear within 5-10 on the bottom right of your screen. Click the pop-up to open “Files" or locate "Files" by clicking the Launcher's circle icon on the bottom left of your screen. Then, select "Files" below the search bar. 
  3. Click “ShotKam” on the left column.
  4. Double-click the "SHOTKAM" folder. Then, double-click the dated folder of the shots you wish to view. 
  5. Hold the shift key on your keyboard, and click-and-drag over each video. Each video should now have a check mark on the left and be highlighted in blue. 
  6. Right-click on one video and select "Open with Video Player" from the drop-down list.

You can now view your videos in Video Player. 

 

How do I go frame-by-frame?

Unfortunately, Chromebook Video Player does not have a frame-by-frame feature. Other applications on Chromebook (like VLC Media Player) also lack this feature. We recommend you view your shots frame-by-frame with a compatible mobile device through the ShotKam's Wi-Fi and mobile app. 

What are the keyboard shortcuts?

Spacebar: Pause and play videos. 
Right Arrow: Forward 1 second. 
Left Arrow: Rewind 1 second. 

How do I delete old videos off my ShotKam?

To delete videos from your ShotKam, follow these steps: 

  1. In the corner of your screen, select Launcher: . Then, search Files in the search bar.
  2. Open Files .
  3. Click ShotKam in the left-hand column. 
  4. Double-click the "SHOTKAM" folder. Then, double-click the dated folder of the shots you wish to delete. 
  5. Select the video you wish to delete, and click Delete on your keyboard. 

This will permanently delete your ShotKam videos.  

How do I save videos onto my computer so it doesn't need to be plugged in?

To save videos directly to your Chromebook computer, follow these steps: 

  1. In the corner of your screen, select Launcher: . Then, search Files in the search bar.
  2. Open Files .
  3. Click ShotKam in the left-hand column. 
  4. Double-click the "SHOTKAM" folder. Then, double-click the dated folder of the shots you wish to save. 
  5. Click the video you wish to save and press Ctrl + on your keyboard. 
  6. Locate Google Drive in the left-hand column and select "My Drive" to save your shots to your computer's hard-drive. 
  7. Select "Save."
