    I have wifi transfer on both my iPhone 5, running iOS 6, and my original iPad. The original iPad cannot be updated to ios 6 per Apple, so it is running an ios5 version. I can transfer pictures from phone to iPad just fine. However, when I transfer video from phone to iPad it goes through all of the steps, including the progress bar for the transfer and the message that the transfer was successful. However, the video does not show up anywhere. Any help? Thanks.

      Hi Bob,

      You can double check following bellow tips see if any help.

      1. Grant Wifi transfer app the access to your Photo libraries on both your iPhone and iPad.
      For iOS 6: go to Settings -> Privacy -> Photos, turn on the Wifi Transfer.
      For iOS 5: go to Settings -> Privacy ->Location Service, then enable location service for Wifi Transer.

      2. Normally if you can send pictures from iphone to ipad, you should be able to send over videos as well. Just make sure:
      1). you have enough space on your ipad to save the video.
      2). Also the video format is ipad compatible.
      To verify above, you can try:
      1) to send a very small video clip from iphone to ipad see if any help.
      2) to send a video from iPad to iphone see how it goes, if it works, then try to send the same video back to your ipad.
