    Tried uploading a 35 second clip to Mail and its resized to nothing. Tried uploading to my Dropbox and fails every time. How do I view this on my computer in full resolution?

    Should be in photos and camera settings as that's where you change the resolution

    Thats the only place? How do I get them on my computer? I have a Mac, it can't be this difficult.

    On your Mac use Image Capture. It's in the application folder. You can use the app to import photos and video to your computer.

    I use Phonedrive (app in appstore) - web browser based file transfer

    How do you upload 4K video to YouTube directly from your iPhone 6s?

    Just plug in your phone via USB to your Mac. You can transfer the video into Photos App. It's also faster transferring via USB.

    Is there a way to determine right on the iPhone what a video's resolution and frame rate are? Last night I took a bunch of videos with different settings, and aside from zooming in during playback, it's hard to tell which are which. Needs to be a way to see the metadata that shows the video settings you used during capture.

    Yes. And here is the CRAZY THING - I need to still run SNOW LEOPARD - and SLeopard does not support the latest iTunes version. And, iOS9 will not work without it. THEREFORE, I cannot back up my iPhone to my computer. I can't even get iTunes to recognize my iPhone. BUT, iPhoto still recognizes my iPhone.
    ALL I HAD TO DO IS use the lightning cable that came with the iPhone6 and plug it into my computer. Then I open iPhoto. My new iPhone is instantly recognized and I can select the photos/video I just took and upload them into iPhoto. It could not be easier.
    Try it and let me know if it works for you.

    Just quoting myself to see if anyone has any suggestions on how to determine the resolution and frame rate of the videos you've taken on the phone without having to transfer video to pc? Something that will show the properties of videos?

    It might depend on what drive you are watching it on, as when I watch on my 6s max resolution is 720p, on my iPad Air 2 it is 1080p max, and on my iMac it can be viewed in full 4K resolution

    It's simple... first off you can only upload 4k using the desktop version of Youtube at this time - not your iPhone. If you if upload to the Youtube app from your phone it will only do 1080p

    Airdrop to your Mac - than upload to to Youtube. It will be in 4k

    That's a change. The day I got my iPhone I tried uploading a video to YouTube from the phone and 4K was listed as an option. I checked it again now and it only shows HD as an option. The Oct. 5th release Youtube app must have removed the option.
