I am an experienced Spark user, but I have never been 100% clear on what the DJI GO 4 app means when allowing the Spark to make caches.
Is there a YouTube video on this anywhere? I would like to learn more about it.
Thank you!

the videos and pictures taken are on the SD card. but some of them will remain in the phone's cache as well at a lower resolution.

But if the cache is full...should I empty it or does it empty automatically or overwrite with the newest data???

I really would like to watch a video on what it is, how it works, and what recommended settings are for it by DJI

Hi there, the video cache is the transmission video cache on the Editor, DJI GO 4 app, it is not the original video, the original video will be saved on the SD card on the drone. When there is not much space for the mobile device to save the cached video, you can clear some caches that are not needed. You can disable/enable this option if needed. Basically, I would like to enable it. BTW, the picture will be automatically cached in the editor, if there is a need to access the original picture, you can connect the drone, RC and app to download it. Hope it provides you with some info.

Yes, like the reply on 8#, you can clear the firmware package when the firmware has already updated. No worries.

Thank you so much! This now makes a lot more sense.

As you fly and see lower-quality video on the app screen your mobile device running DJI Go 4 is keeping a copy of that video.  That video is stored in the cache.  Not as good quality as what is stored on the drones SD card, but a great option to review when you need to find a lost drone or to view before you get the chance to download from the SD card.

Kloo-Gee did a Youtube video on this recently.
