However, some people complain that iTunes slows down the process of putting videos onto Apple device, and the steps are somehow complicated. You must first import the videos to iTunes library and then finally sync them to device. I can't agree more. I used to import MP4 to my iPhone via iTunes, but it is a long process. Sometimes, people failed to transfer movies to iPhone with iTunes. Someone figured out the cause, which is some of videos are in AVI, MOV, FLV movie formats that can't be recognized. What else you can do? We have to look for alternative methods to transfer videos from computer to iPhone.

As a person who just gets rid of the video transferring problem from PC to Apple device, I think my experience may bring you some light if you are also facing the same problem. You can also transfer MP3 to iPhone or move other data via the same ways.

Method 1. Transfer Videos to iPhone via iTunes

Launch iTunes and plug your iPhone into computer via the USB cable. If iPhone can’t be detected automatically, manually restart it on your computer.
