I recently transferred a video which was filmed on my iphone to my PC. I am now trying to transfer it back but it tells me the file is unsupported. I am sure the problem is because video recorded on the iphone is .mov format which is not supported by iphone. How can I transfer home videos back to my iphone once they have been taken off?

iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.1

    i am guessing that you are using Windows Media Player , which automatically converts the file to .mov. To put it back you have to convert it .Mp4. Look for an online converter. If the Video is too big download a Video converter

    How did you tried to send your video back to iphone?

    You have to add the video in itunes and sync by selecting it under Movies tap in iTunes.

    I don't think that Windows Media Player converts anything.

    Windows Movie Maker converts to .wmv if you want but thats not the case.

    I think the OP just wants to empty the Camera Roll and sync the videos back to iPhone.

    I think there must be a bug somewhere when playing the video on your iphone

    Is the video still in Camera Roll?

    Can you transfer again from iPhone to PC?
