Hi All, which is the best way to transfer videos I made with the Iphone 3GS video camera to iMac or Windows PC. I have tried iPhoto, but could not find a way. Appreciate your hints.

    Does iphoto launch when you connect your phone to your mac? If it does, you can import your camera roll photos & videos here. You'll be given the option after import to delete or keep the originals on your phone. If iphoto doesn't launch when your phone is connected, launch the image capture app in your applications folder and make sure that under preferences that iphoto is selected when a camera is connected.

    That's (sarcasm).

    I don't particularly care for the non-ease in which I can buy a video on itunes via the iphone, but it won't let me put it back on my mac. I get no prompt to do so, iphoto won't import it, itunes won't let me download it without paying for it again, it won't sync off my phone.

    So tell me again, why do I buy anything from itunes when it's a (expletive deleted) to get anything available in both places?

    What are you talking about?

    The original question was how to put a home video made with the iphone on the computer.

    If you purchased a video in itunes and want to transfer it to itunes just click File>Transfer Purchases

    So relax, perhaps you have jumped off the bridge to soon.
