Best way to import home videos?

    When I take home videos with my iPhone, I:
    1) import them via iPhoto
    2) Within MacOS Finder, import the video file into iTunes
    3) Sync my iPhone to my Mac

    I'm a crappy iPhone user and took the majority of my home videos in portrait mode instead of landscape. Unfortunately, all of these portrait home videos on my iPhone now show up quite tiny on my phone when I play them. They don't fill up the screen when my phone is in portrait orientation. See the attached picture in this post for an example.

    Any thoughts on how I can remedy this (aside from stop shooting home videos in portrait mode)?

    View your videos in portrait mode and then double-tap the screen to fill it.

    Or you can download the 'Horizon' app and record horizontally - always, automatically.

    Double tapping on it does zoom in on the video in landscape mode and thus crops off part of the video. What I'm wanting is for the video to display in portrait mode as that was the orientation it was shot in.

    I would suggest not syncing the video to your Mac and then back to your phone. Just leave it on your phone.
