Does anyone know why sometimes Image Capture says “Converting” while copying videos off an iOS device to a Mac, taking much longer?
I have noticed recently that when copying videos from my phone to my Mac, instead of just copying them quickly, the Image Capture app says it’s “Converting” them instead. This takes a lot of time, and it seems like some kind of transcoding is going on? I sure don’t want that, I want the video exactly as it exists on the phone to be copied over for editing, organizing, and archiving.
I happen to have an iPhone 7 and Mojave but have heard friends are experiencing this as well. These aren’t slow-motion or otherwise “processed” videos either, just simple .MOV files that we’d like to copy off our phones.
Does anyone know anything more about this?
