Question: Automatically transfer videos from iPhone to Photos for Mac

On my iPhone in Settings > Photos, I checked 'Automatic' for the Transfer to Mac or PC option. The description states "Automatically transfer photos and videos in a compatible format..."


On my MacBook Pro in Photos > Preferences > iCloud, I have "My Photo Stream" enabled.


My photos taken on the iPhone are automatically transferring to Photos on my Mac, but my videos are not. Any ideas why not??

MacBook Pro, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)

Of course because as documented MyPhotoStream does not transfer videos -- How to use My Photo Stream - Apple Support

Which photo formats can I use with My Photo Stream?

My Photo Stream supports JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and most RAW photo formats. My Photo Stream doesn't support video or Live Photos.


The only way To automatically transfer Photos and Videos (including Live Photos) use iCloud Phpto Library

iCloud Photo Library - Apple Support
