from the media server icon . choose the video and push triangle then push copy . spending on how big it is . its easier to move onto something pshyical and then copy it from that

from the media server icon . choose the video and push triangle then push copy . depending on how big it is . its sometime faster to move onto something pshyical and then copy it from that
