A Short Roundup of WALTR 2 features:

  • Wi-Fi support. If your device and computer are connected to the same Internet network, you can easily transfer video from PC to iPhone wirelessly.

  • ACR (Automatic Content Recognition). This means the app will recognize all the artworks and other necessary info like title, genre, episode description.

  • WALTR 2 works with the entire lineup of all the iPods released by Apple since 2001. (including Classic series)

  • Manage your eBooks & PDFs with WALTR 2. Now you can transfer video to iPhone and also text or music files.

If you’re a Mac user, perhaps you don’t experience this overwhelming pain whenever you launch iTunes, so you might think I’m exaggerating here. But on Windows, it’s just a different story, since iTunes is slower and can crash anytime. 

On top of this, it’s difficult to navigate. Also, now you can only sync one device with a single iTunes library, otherwise – iTunes can wipe out your files. The last point is especially painful.

The iTunes struggle is as frequent when working with iPods. That’s why we dedicated an entire piece on how to sync iPod to iTunes properly.


WALTR 2 is the ultimate tool to help you transfer video to iPhone without syncing the whole device, which we know well – can last forever. There are no format impediments, no quality loss, nothing that can confuse you. You can easily move any movie onto iPhone without sweating one bit.

WALTR is amazingly simple, it can’t get anymore easier, since it’s just a drop zone. You just throw music & video of any kind – and voila! It’s there, on your iPhone.

I sincerely hope that I was able to answer your question of how to put videos from computer to iPhone. Now, enjoy the experience! 

P.S. The struggle to understand how to send a video from PC to iPhone is quite widespread. Feel free to share this article with those looking for the solution. Cheers!
