Add Videos to Your Library

Buy or rent videos from the iTunes Store. Tap Store in the Videos app, or open the iTunes Store app on iPhone, then tap Movies or TV Shows. The iTunes Store is not available in all areas.

Transfer videos from your computer. Connect your iPhone to computer, and then sync videos from iTunes on your computer.

Stream videos from your computer. Turn on Home Sharing in iTunes on your computer. Then, on iPhone, go to Settings > Videos and enter the Apple ID and password you used for Home Sharing on your computer. Then open Videos on iPhone, and tap Shared at the top of the list of videos.

Convert a video for iPhone. If you try to sync a video from iTunes to iPhone and a message says the video can't play on iPhone, you can convert the video. Select the video in your iTunes library,then choose File > Create New Version > Create iPhone Version. Then sync the converted video to iPhone.

Delete a video. Tap Edit in the upper right of your collection, then tap on the video thumbnail. If you don't see the Edit button, look for on your video thumbnails—those videos haven't been downloaded to iPhone, so you can't delete them. To delete an individual episode of a series, swipe left on the episode in the Episodes list.

Deleting a video from iPhone doesn't delete it from the iTunes library on your computer, and you can sync the video back to iPhone later. If you don't want to sync the video back to iPhone, set iTunes to not sync the video.

Important: If you delete a rented movie from iPhone, it's deleted permanently and cannot be transferred back to your computer.
