Apple is well known for complicating things. In fact, if you try to sync or transfer videos from your computer to iPhone (with or without iTunes) you will immediately realize where all your videos are stored. Yes, they end up in the app Video and not in Camera roll Photo. This involves limits such as the inability to share or edit them through the video editing apps integrated into the device but which apply only to the videos and photos in the Camera Roll. Don't you find all this absurd? This is a kind of restriction from Apple and there are many complaining about not being given the chance to share home made videos, downloaded first to the computer and then imported to the iPhone.
