How to Get Videos from iPhone onto My Computer

"Im having trouble getting videos I have taken with my iphone 4 onto my laptop. I can only email a portion of them, as they are mostly quite long or else upload to youtube, which I dont want to do. I do have Itunes in sync with my iphone but have no idea how to get videos from the phone onto the computer."

One of the striking features of iPhone is the built-in Camera, which is great for HD video recording. It allows you to shot HD videos anywhere & any time. However, it could happen that one day, videos, photos, and other types of files will eat up the storage space on your phone. The videos you record or movies you download on your iPhone take the most part of the iPhone space. So transferring videos from your iPhone 6 or 6s to computer is not only a great option to free up space but also to make a backup.

When you're ready to transfer iPhone videos to your PC, you may find it is not quite as convenient like transferring files from USB storage to PC. This is just because Apple wants to preserve the copyright for the media supplier. On a Windows Computer the easiest way to import videos from your iPhone is to use Windows Explorer (Windows Vista and Window 7/8/10). But you can use this method to import videos captured using iPhone's built-in camera. You are not allowed to import videos synced from iTunes.

Alternatively, you can also use iPhone to PC Transfer Tool to export all types of videos/movies from iPhone to a PC without any limitations.
