    I have a video I took on my GS4 that I would like to copy to my wife's iP5. It's about 20 minutes long so I don't think I can move it via email as the file is just under 3 GB.

    Is there a simple and easy way to do this?

    Copy the video from the S4 to your computer. Then copy it from your computer to the iPhone.

    Well that's a start, and one that I thought of. I use ES File explorer frequently to copy stuff to my PC over my WLAN... but I don't know how to move it from the PC to the iP5.

    Is there an iOs app like ES File explorer to do that?

    Or can I just find the phones on my WLAN and copy over my wireless network bypassing the PC? If so, I've never seen either phone on my wireless lan, but they do show up on my router's device list.

    Just a side note, the video may not be compatible to play on the iPhone - they are picky for what they will play.

    Once you get the video off the GS4, you can convert it with a tool from They have a good video conversion tool, and it's free.

    According to one site I read, the iP5 supports the mp4 format, which is what my GS4 records. Would there be any reason to convert?

    "In terms of TV and Video playback, the iPhone 5 supports
    AirPlay Mirroring to Apple TV support at 720p;
    AirPlay video streaming to Apple TV (3rd generation) at up to 1080p and Apple TV (2nd generation) at up to 720p;

    I confirmed it worked on my iPad mini, from a quick video I took on my S4. Would not play on my 1st gen iPod Touch however, but that is stuck at 3.1.3 iOS.
