how do i get a large video file out of iphone?
Hi, I'm a newbie here.
I took a 20 minute video with my iphone 4 and can't get it downloaded onto my computer. I have tried syncing, drag and drop, copy and paste.
Any other ideas would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance.

normally you would connect it to your computer and use iPhoto or image capture to import the video, Bu if you having some issues for some reason try this app called videosafe._________________ ______________________

When your phone is connected go to "My Computer" and you'll see the phone in the explorer. Just
open it to where the file is located and then you can do the drag and drop.

I tried to copy some very large video files from my iPhone to my PC this week. They were 45 minute long videos, over a gig in size. I tried to use Windows Explorer to do it, but the copy kept failing. So I surfed around and found a free product that worked great, and I wanted to share it with you. Itís called Copy Trans. It copied all these big files into iTunes for me.

Connect your iPhone to the computer with USB cable, open My Computer, your iPhone should be in the list of hard drives. Navigate down through the folders until you find your video, and copy the file like any other file.Dot Com Infoway- Mobile Application Development

+1 for Copytrans as well! It seems like videos over 5-6 minutes won't transfer from the phone for me. They always come out as 0kb and won't play. Copytrans has been far more reliable for me. I stopped using iTunes for music and use Copytrans to manage it instead.

I use iFunbox, fast and convenient...but i've also never had transfer issues with iPhoto or iMovie when transferring videos either, so i don't know what Apple could do any better outside of maybe a quicker transfer rate through their native software.
