Videos do not upload to iCloud/Photostream?

I thought I remember seeing in Apple's demos that videos shot with the iPhone would automatically upload to the Photostream but t hasn't happened with anything I've shot, only photos has uploaded.

Is there something I need change in settings or?

I agree with the OP. I think its ridiculous that there are ********** out there that need to say crap like PHOTOstream in response to this question about videos. In the interest of keeping this thread alive and in the pursuit of real knowledge ill phrase my question differently. Is there anyway to take have videos automatically sync with iCloud, be it through photostream etc. without having to use the wifi sync feature with iTunes? Thanks in advance for any pointers.

Ridiculous. I guess the iPhone is NOT PC-Free since you need to connect to transfer videos to iPhoto.

And it only being over wifi blows my mind too. I really hope something like my3G fixes this. In general, people take pics when they're NOT on wifi. Not at home or work. And then you get home and have a couple hundred megs to upload at once. I'd rather have the choice to do it on the fly.

Sorry, maybe I'm missing something but I still (having read all posts) can't work this one out. As the thread starter states, in the Apple demo video, iCloud transfers movies shot using iPhone 4S onto all devices.

iCloud sends photos I took on iPhone to iphoto, but I don't know if my movies are being transferred anywhere??

Thanks.

I also thought I saw an iCloud Ad with video being loaded to iCloud. Didn't a child run in from a football game or something and go and immediately check out the video on a mac at home? Not sure either how it would be possible since it is supposed to upload only via wifi?!

Nope. I looked too and it is only a picture being uploaded. Here's the link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lXwb...e_gdata_player
It is at the 4:20 minute area.

Regards,

Martin

P.s. I found this thread as I too am looking to upload videos

OK, so what is the best way to get your videos off the iPhone?
I guess an Import from Aperture / iPhoto?

Photostream has already taken care of the photos, so how to only import the videos, without re-importing all the photos?

Easiest way I've found is to use Image Capture, sort on file size (biggest usually = movie), aperture (movies have blank aperture) or something like that, find the videos, then drag them into the Finder

But this is a terrible user experience - anyone have a better method?

At the moment I'm not really bothering to take any video, as it's such a drag to get off the phone / I keep forgetting & wiping them!

As long as you have PhotoStream set up in iPhoto and set it to automatically import your PhotoStream pics into your library (all in Preferences), then when you plug in your phone, you should only see videos to import and the pics should be in the "already imported" section.

Sometimes, the pics come up to be imported as well, but while it's importing, it realizes it already has them in the library and asks if it should import a duplicate, say no and you're all good.

And another thing ....

Once my videos are in Aperture, they're not syncing onto my iPhone, even if I've selected the relevant Smart Albums in the Photos tab of iTunes ...

So I still think that video syncing isn't exactly smooth ...

Hey ho

These 1080p videos are starting to be a pain to sync to iphoto via usb.

The quicker they incorporate video in wireless syncing the better. Just to even have it as an opt in would be great

try KinKast

I've been developing an app that lets you transfer videos to the KinKast cloud, Facebook, and youtube with resumable block level transfers.

I understand how auto syncing with iCloud would be better, but then you would still have to remember to share the photos and videos with family and friends after they have synced to iPhoto. With KinKast you can share the videos before they are done transferring and the share message will go out after the uploads are complete.

Apple still needs to clean all of this up...

Why are video's in iTunes? - iTunes should = music
Why are videos in iPhoto? - iPhoto should = photos
Why aren't videos in iMovie... hmmm

Videos will play in iPhoto but not in Photos on iOS devices... But videos will play on Apple TV under the photos heading... On iOS devices videos are in the videos app which isn't found on Mac's or the Apple TV... hmmm

Don't even get me started on photostream...

I wonder how many people it took to make these decisions???

Plug into computer.
Open My Computer.
Open "iPhone" that will be there as a removable device.
Copy out the files you want.

What's the point of iOS's Photostream and wifi sync capabilities if every day I have to plug it into my computer and manually select and download the video clips? This is retarded.
