I'm using a GS5 SM-G900V, Samsung Series 9 Lite laptop, freshly downloaded Sidesync 3.0 programs (for both phone and PC) and connecting via USB (wifi doesn't work but it's my work wifi so I suspect it'll work at home).
I can't really afford to have that huge file lying around so does anyone know where it comes from or how to get rid of it (without it coming back)?
Yeah I get this too while plugged into USB (Note3 + Windows 8.1) (not sure if WiFi does the same as it doesn't work for me). In essence when the phone is connected it's creating a video feed and this YUV file is it's output but the desktop SideSync doesn't seem to delete it once you're done. So after a 20min session there's always a very large video file just lying around doing nothing. This is obviously a bug in the SideSync desktop app.
Another bug would be that it seems to use quite a bit of power. When plugged in you'd expect the phone to be charging which I'm sure it is but not as much as it's loosing power while SideSync is running.
YUV file is saved in.
It's a pity as SideSync is really handy but I can't use it because of these BUGs!
Edit: Ok the issue with the large dump files seems to have fixed itself after a re-install of the desktop SideSync3.
