    I've taken some videos over the weekend which are quite large. Now my icloud backup is too big. Is there a way to exclude only the videos from icloud backup. All I see is option to turn off camera roll - but then none of my photos will be backed up.
    I want only the big video (around 6GB) not to be backed up.
    Everything else is small. Trying to avoid buying additional storage.

    As far as I know it's all or nothing.

    If you want you could backup to your computer and skip iCloud Backup

    Transfer the vids to your computer and remove them from your iPhone.

    Will end up doing this - I wish to keep it only phone if I can but still be able to backup to iCloud without just the videos
    Guess it can't be done

    You can move the videos to a different folder on your iPhone (you can create a new folder under Photos by clicking Edit, then Add). You will then later have to manually put those videos on your PC/Mac if you want a backup.

    I don't think anything outside the Camera Roll is backed up (photos/videos wise).

    Tried that- but the video still exists in camera roll. How do I move it out of camera roll and put in in an album which I don't want iPod to backup?
    It Only adds the video to the new album

    As I said I s want to keep the video on iphone

    Pretty sure the folders only act as a copy of Camera Roll. If you delete it from Camera Roll, it'd delete it from the folder. Folders are more like Labels.
