When you use iTunes syncing to transfer videos, it will override the content already on your iPhone. If you had content on your iPhone, they will be erased and only the transferred files will now appear.

Here are the steps to follow:
  1. Install the Dropbox application on your PC or use the web interface by visiting dropbox.com.
  2. In the application, go to Files > My Files > Upload Files. Select the videos from your PC and upload them. In the web interface, simply click on “Upload” and upload your videos.

  5. The two accounts will automatically sync and you will be able to access the same videos you uploaded on your iPhone too.

Other methods

To transfer videos from PC to iPhone, you can also use a third-party app or a video player (like VLC).
VLC allows you to simply drag and drop your selected videos after wirelessly connecting your iPhone and your PC. Select “Sharing via Wi-Fi” option in the VLC app and note the IP address displayed. Enter it into a browser window on your PC and start the transfer process. Your videos will be saved in the VLC app.
You can also use third-party apps like MobiMover to transfer files between your PC and iPhone. Go to the App Store and check out the various other apps available for this purpose.
