Intro:

Apple devices are amazing for movie playback. But it’s hella trouble to copy videos from PC to iPhone. You might have tons of awesome movies on your computer, but if you’d like to transfer one of them to iPhone or iPad you need to go through quite a hassle. The usual tool to move your files between devices is iTunes (which of course is not that user-friendly).

Sure thing, iTunes is the application desgined to copy videos to iPhone as well as any other file type. It’s meant for this. But the truth is, iTunes may not always work as it’s supposed. Beginning with the fact that it simply may not always recognize your device or it has all those format impediments, like it can’t sync AVI or MKV movies.

How to Copy Videos from PC to iPhone [Video Tutorial]

NOTE: The method displayed below works beautifully on both Mac & Windows systems.

To show you how it works (it’s soo simple) we made a short screencast video demonstrating WALTR 2 in action:

Now when you watched the video, you noticed how intuitive the whole thing is, so you know that WALTR 2 is 100% worth trying out! So go ahead click the button below to get WALTR’s installation file (it’s free):

If you were searching for the way to play AVI on iPhone or iPad – great news! WALTR converts & transfers any movies to iPhone. It accepts MKV, AVI, CUE, WMA, WMV and many many more.

Step 1. Launch WALTR 2

WALTR 2 has a very clear UI. There are no buttons or tabs, there’s no way you can get lost and get confused.

Step 2. Plug-in your iPhone

Before you copy videos from PC to iPhone, you will need to connect it to your computer. WALTR 2 is able to work via WiFi, but to enable the feature you have to connect your iPhone to the computer first and then click on the gear in the bottom right corner and select ‘Enable WiFi Connectivity’ there. This feature is still working experimentally, but very soon it’ll be more than stable.

WALTR 2 also shows you the free storage left on your iOS device.

Step 3. Drag your video into the drop-zone.

The blue progress bar will keep you updated on the whole transferring duration. In this case I’m putting 3GB episode of ‘Shameless’ TV Show on an iPhone, WALTR will copy the video like that to iPhone in no more than a minute. More than this, it’s an MKV (Matroska) format, and as you know iPhones usually aren’t able to play back those. In this case, WALTR 2 will convert MKV to MOV on-the-fly. Next step is simply to go into your TV. app and play it back!

WALTR fully supports the following formats:
Video: MKV & AVI (includes subtitle support: .srt & .ass), MOV, MP4, M4V, 3GP, WMV;

Audio: MP3, FLAC, APE, ALAC, M4R, AAC, M4B, AIFF, WAV, WMA, CUE, OGG, OGA, WV, TTA, DFF;
*Experimental support: FLV, M2TS, TS;

When WALTR transferred the file (and it usually just freakin’ fast), simply proceed to the next step!
