I have added a file into the app iMovie in itunes... but after i sync and open imovie on my phone i cannot find that video file there.  What do I need to do to get it showing in imovie on my phone?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.2

    These two screen shots come from Mountain Lion's iMovie help.  Read theemm in succession.  If they're too small, click and expand them:

    This is the Home Sharing section of the iPhone User Manual:



    Home Sharing

    Home Sharing lets you play music, movies, and TV shows from the iTunes library on your Mac or PC. iPhone and your computer must be on the same Wi-Fi network.

    Note: Home Sharing requires iTunes 10.2 or later, available at www.itunes.com/download. Bonus content, such as digital booklets and iTunes Extras, can’t be shared.

    Play music from your iTunes library on iPhone:

    1. In iTunes on your computer, choose Advanced > Turn On Home Sharing. Log in, then click Create Home Share.
    2. On iPhone, go to Settings > Music, then log in to Home Sharing using the same Apple ID and password.
    3. In Music, tap More, then tap Shared and choose your computer’s library.
    4. Return to content on iPhone: Tap Shared and choose My iPhone.



    Based on this, have you checked for your movie in Music > More (might it be where the music would be stored as indicated above)?
