It’s really important for iPhone fans to move their precious photos and videos which take record of their memories to computer, then to burn them onto DVD or save to U-disk or upload to Internet.

Here I want to show how to transfer iPhone videos to computer using only wifi, then burn them on to DVDs for saving. Here I will use Wireless Transfer app for iPhone and Slideshow DVD Creator for Mac.

Wireless Transfer app is a transfer tool which has Windows/ Mac/ iOS/ Android version, so you can use the app to transfer photos/ videos between computer, iOS devices and Android devices freely. Here we will use it to send videos from iPhone to Mac.

Slideshow DVD Creator is a slideshow application which can create photos/ music/ videos to professional-looking slideshow quite simply, then burn it onto DVD with the built-in DVD burner. Of course, it also supports to encode the slideshows to MP4 or Mov video format, so you can also enjoy the slideshow video on portable devices or upload them to Youtube/ Facebook etc.

Let’s see how to do it:
