One of the major benefits of owning an iPhone is the ability to check several email inboxes at once using the mail application. However, the iPhone only allows for supported video formats to be viewed in an email (i.e. QuickTime, M4R). Well, thanks to an interesting work around, I am now able to actually enjoy viewing videos that I receive in my email once again!  The following is all about how to open emailed video attachments on iPhone.

To save video Attachment on iPhone, two ways are available. Both ways work equally well. However,method two is more time-consuming than method one which encodes video faster and convert videos to iPhone at one go.

Method One: adopt Mac iPhone Video Converter for help

iPhone Video Converter for Mac is professional yet easy-to-use software, offering optimized presets for iPhone, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and more. So you can just select the output format according to the model of iPhone you have. I prefer this method over the other because it converts video files faster and supports batch conversion.

Method Two: Video the emailed video attachment on iPhone

In the previous versions of iOS though you could save pictures you were missing the “video” saving ability but in iOS 6 you are able to save any videos from a text or email message you received on your iPod, iPad, iPhone 8 or iPhone X. Now, just like with pictures, all you have to do to save a video is:

1. Open the email, messages, etc. that you received the movie in
2. Tap on the icon or preview and hold on it
3. When the Save Video button pops up, Tap it!
That’s it. The video will now be saved to your Camera Roll for you to use as you so wish.
