How to get videos from my 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 vids and pics from the phone onto the computer.
Any help would be most appreciated

I believe it works like this: when the device is connected to your laptop and iTunes is open, select the device itself within iTunes, and under the Movies and Photos tabs, make sure that Sync is actually checked. The photos and movies on your phone should now be copied into the iTunes folder on your laptop the next time you sync the device. That's how it's been working on my computer anyways...

A quick workaround is to download the drop box app and sign up for a drop box account. Install it in your phone and your PC/Mac, then you can go in it from the app and upload to a folder and it will download to your PC/Mac. Obviously, the speed will depend on the size of the video, but if you are really needing to get at the videos it will work. Works the same with pictures.

Elaborating on rayz336, if you're on windows, you don't need dropbox or itunes to get photos and videos off your iphone. From my computer or windows explorer, you should see the iphone when its connected to the computer. The only directory inside the iphone you can see is the DCIM folder, which just happens to be where all photos and videos are stored. The photos and videos will be inside of a folder one level down from DCIM. That folder will have a nonsense name.
