Before I enabled photostream, when I synced my iPhone with iTunes iPhoto would also open and ask me to Import my photos and videos I took on my iPhone. Now that I've enabled photostream I can see the photos instantly synced between the iPhone and the Mac; however, my iPhone is no longer visible now in the iPhoto pane and I cannot figure out a way to get the videos I took on the iPhone onto the Mac since photostream does not support videos.


What's up? Do I have to disable photostream to move videos from the iPhone to the Mac?




MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.1)

    Eh, nevermind. I figured it out. Apparently video sync does not work with the new wireless iTunes sync between Macs and iPhones; only photos are synced. So I just needed to actually hardwire plug my iPhone into my Mac.


    Apple - could have used some better Help guidance on this!

    Hi ED , I am in the same boat , I have tried everything but when I connect my iphone to the Mac by USB it goes through the sync process as usual except Iphoto. It does not show up as a device in Iphoto and therefor the videos are not recognized.


    Everything else is syncing properly , pctures are displaying on all my devices ( ipad2, iphone4, Mac intel) so I can't figure out how to handle the videos. There is one message that comes up when I open itunes, it says "videos are unchecked and no videos will be displayed" (something like that) maybe this is a problem but I can't see where to change this setting.

    I am having the same issue...in iPhoto I disabled the Photostream sync and when I plugged in my iPhone it sync'd like it used to before Photostream.  I was able to import the videos and remove them from my iPhone.  I would like to use Photostream on my Mac so this is a half baked solution.
