Exporting movies out of "Videos" on iPhone

Hi.

My mac hard drive died, taking everything with it.

Now I have a new hard drive, and I'm trying to sync my iPhone with it, but if I sync the movies via iTunes, I'll wipe the movies that are currently on my iPhone.

How do export the movies out of Videos on the iPhone, so I can at least save them somewhere else (and ultimately reload them back onto the phone).

Cheers,
Chad

I think you need something like Phoneview:

That's $30, though. There will probably be other options but I don't know what they are. Others may chime in, that's the only one I'm familiar with.

On Windows you can just browse through the iPhone and drag and drop videos onto your computer. I never understood why it was a lot more complicated on OS X...

Upload them to some file hosting. Probably, your data plan is not unlimited -
in this case, you better use the WiFi access point for doing that.
