First of all, iPhone only supports certain types of video files such as MP4, M4V, and MOV files. Thus, if you want to transfer videos from PC to iPhone for enjoyment, you will need to convert your videos to iPhone-compatible formats. When talking about how to transfer videos from PC to iPhone, iTunes may be regarded as the first choice. As the only official media player and media library application released by Apple, iTunes can manage the libraries of your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. You are able to transfer various kinds of videos, from a computer to iPhone with iTunes.

The following steps will show you how to transfer videos from computer to iPhone with iTunes:

Step 1. Plug the iPhone into the computer via the USB cable. iTunes should launch automatically, but if it doesn’t, manually start it on your computer.

Step 2. Click “File > Add Files to Library” at the upper left corner of the window. Then, select the video files on your computer and add them to the library.

Step 3. Click the iPhone icon in iTunes and choose “Movies” in the left sidebar. Then, check “Sync Movies” and click “Apply. iTunes will then sync movies to your iPhone.

    However, iTunes will only sync the selected videos in the library when it is syncing videos from iTunes Library to iPhone; that is to say, iTunes will erase all the un-selected items. If you have some non-purchased videos that aren’t saved in the iTunes library, you will lose them permanently; in this circumstance, an iTunes alternative can help you solve the problem. If you are seeking for a way to transfer videos from computer to iPhone without data loss, you can use the third-party software, Leawo iTransfer, to finish the task.

    The iPod/iPad/iPhone transfer software allows you to transfer files among iOS devices, iTunes, and PCs easily. With this software, you won’t have to worry about the sync of iTunes and the sizes of your video files; you can transfer all the video files you need at once, making the process all the more efficient.

    Here is how to transfer videos from computer to iPhone with the iPhone transfer tool:

    Step 1. Run Leawo iTransfer on your PC and connect your iPhone to your computer with the USB cable. The software will recognize your iPhone and automatically detect the contents in your iPhone. Then, the software will show the libraries that your iPhone has in the left sidebar. Click “Movies” in the left sidebar, and the contents will be shown in the right part of the window.

      Step 2. If your Movie Library doesn’t have any files in it, the software will offer an “Add File” button in the middle of the window to help you add video files from computer. Another option is to click “File > Add > Add File/Add Folder” in the upper right corner of the window to add the necessary video files from your computer.

          So, if you want to find an iTunes alternative, you have the option of selecting Leawo iTransfer. You can’t say that the software is a perfect replacement for iTunes, since it can’t update your iOS software or offer you access to a built-in app store. However, if you have some non-purchased media files, or you want to get rid of iTunes synchronization, Leawo iTransfer is a good choice; it won’t erase anything during the data transfer process.

          Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

          Does technology have all the answers?

          This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

          Creating technological solutions transparently

          This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

          Technology as the connecting tool

          Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

          “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
