What do I do when I get this error message when I'm exporting a video onto my Iphpne 8.
"sorry this type of video cannot be saved to this device"
Have you tried saving the file as a different format?
Looks to me like the format of the file is not supported on the iPhone

Hey there @ricky808,
If this type of video cannot be saved to your mobile device, it may be an issue with the codec and/or bitrate of the video.
Try using a different codec, lower bitrate, or exporting a clip of the video - one of these might do the trick.
Let us know how it goes!
