Where should video live on the Xoom?
I have a Xoom 1 with sdcard. I have a Wifi sync ap that seems to work well. Handles my pics OK anyway. What to use it to sync my videos also but not sure where to put them. Any ideas? Is there a place somewhere that maps common locations for stuff on the Xoom and/or Android? I could probably put it in the Pictures sub-directory but then I would prefer a location that is specific to video. Whatch it turn out to be "Videos". ;-)

Either internal or sdcard work fine. Just make a folder titled Movies. I have mine on the sdcard.
Nexus 4 - CyanMod 10.1
SGS-II - Rooted - Jedi Mind Trick VX3
Samsung Note II - Jedi Master 13
Motorola Xoom - WiFi - Rooted - EOS 4.2.1 Nightlies
Hmmm.... looking at the internal storage, I see some interesting folders. I note that there's a Pictures folders on both Internal storage and the SD card and it pics them both up. I see a Movies folder, I'll give that a whirl. Interestingly there is also a Podcast folder ....uh... Hm.... and also a Video folder. Crud.
If you keep your movies on your SD card, it will leave more room in the internal storage
Annoying signature, but not as annoying as yours
Re: Movies on the SD card. Yeah that was the idea but it's been hard finding something to get files from here to there.
OK after a bit of poking around, I see that I am feeling pain that everyone else is also feeling. There's no bloody doggone way to mount the sdcard without pulling the teeny weeny sucker out of the Xoom. So you are pretty much stuck forcing an update to ICS ( will this even help? ) or doing manual file copies. Got a Wifi sync app that is handling problem for now but IMHO this falls under the list of things a person shouldn't have to pay for. Basic access to their own device.
