    iCloud.com if you have your photos sync enabled, and download from there. Or, Photos App on your Mac, and File > Export.

    What app is the video stored in? Some apps have the ability to transfer files from iPhone to Mac using iTunes. The built-in Photos app on your Mac should be able to transfer any movies and images stored in your camera roll.

    Also, do you have the ability to move the video to another app on your iPhone? VLC for example?

    I agree "i should" but I can't....apple should have made this easy...they did not. the video is stored on the iphone where ever Apple decided to put it.

    What app do you open to find the video? Do you open the photos app on your iPhone? The TV app?

    Have you tried to:
    1. Open iPhoto or Photos on your Mac.
    2. Choose your device in the left sidebar.
    3. Unlock the iPhone and click on accept this computer if asked.
    4. Select the video in the list of images that appears.
    5. Click import. The video should then be imported to your iPhoto/Photos library on your Mac.

    You can also try the following:
    1. Open Image Capture on your Mac.
    2. Choose your device in the left sidebar.
    3. Unlock the iPhone and click on accept this computer if asked.
    4. Select the video in the list of images that appears. Note that the order the images/videos appear in will be different that that of the photos app.
    5. Click import. The video should then be imported to your photo folder on your Mac.

    Finally got it...in capture the first frame does not say .mov so I could not id it as a video...it was tagged like still image. Thanks for all your help...take the rest of the day off with pay.
