Lately I keep getting low on space on my iPhone. Usually after going into the Photos app somehow that seems to free up some space. Perhaps it shifts more photos to the iCloud?

Anyway, when I plug my phone into my Mac it says 16.54 GB is taken up by "Videos". I don't know what that can be. I don't have it set to sync any movies or TV shows. I recently deleted a lot of short video clips from my Photos library. My phone tells me I have about 2.5 GB free. But iTunes says there is 8.8 GB free.

I also recently reset my phone and restored from iCloud backup.

I can't figure out what "videos" are on my phone or what is taking up all my space.

videos could be movies / tv shows in your itunes store app. Have you checked in there?
