How to Extract Videos from iPhone

Most of us like snapping photos and shooting video clips with an iPhone during a travel, in a party or elsewhere. Did you record a great video on your iPhone and want the full quality version on a computer? There are numerous ways to get iPhone videos transferred to PC. In the following guide, we would like to share the most easy ways to extract videos from iPhone to PC.

Method 1: Extract Videos from iPhone to Computer with Windows Explorer


Windows treats the iPhone as either a digital camera or a file system, depending on how the videos are accessed. On a Windows PC, the easiest way to get videos from your iPhone is to just use Windows Explorer, but there are two ways to go about this. In either case, unlock the iPhone before beginning, or else the videos may not be visible.

Using Windows Plug & Play

This utilizes the pop-up that shows by default in Windows when a device is connected to the computer by way of USB.

1. Plug-in your iPhone to the computer or your laptop without iTunes running
2. Wait for a popup asking you what you want to do with the device
3. Select "View Content"
4. Find your videos through the folders that are displayed
5. Copy the videos from Windows as usual

Using iPhone as Digital Camera in Windows Explorer

If your iPhone is already plugged into the PC, you can also try this method:

1. Open "My Computer"
2. Find the iPhone, it will appear under Portable Devices section
3.Open iPhone to find your videos
4. Select the videos you want to copy and paste them to the desired location of your computer

Remember, if the iPhone videos are not showing up in Windows, make sure the iPhone is unlocked first. Otherwise the iPhone will be found in 'My Computer' but all of the content on it will be invisible and inaccessible. If you run into that, all you need to do is touch the iPhone, unlock the screen and enter the passcode, and all of your stuff will be visible as expected.
