    I am trying to find and copy to my PC, via USB-mini cable, the videos from my S4.
    I can find the pictures, but in what folder are the videos located?

    (I want to do a direct copy and not go thru the likes of Dropbox, or any other intermediary software).

    Thanks for your help.

    Look in your camera app settings, to see if it has a setting for the location of the videos. Otherwise, look in the DCIM folder (in one of the folders in it) or look for a Videos folder. (Different apps save videos in different places. They're supposed to save all shots in the DCIM (Digital Camera IMages) folder, by convention.)

    Thank you Rukbat,
    I looked in...
    Settings>More>Applications Manager>GALAXY Apps ... Nothing to help me there.
    As before, I found my *.jpg files in DCIM, but again, no videos.
    Are the video files MP4 format? I searched the phone for MP4 but nothing.
    I also searched for WMV but nothing either.
    Do you know the format of the video files?
    Thanks for your help.

    I just looked, on my s4 Active they are in the DCIM/Camera folder & yes, they are mp4 format. And the Galaxy Apps that you mentioned is just a Samsung version of an app store. Doesn't really have anything to do with your local device per say.

    Thanks, prolongEx, and Ruckbat.
    I downloaded 'Samsung Kies 3' an interfacing program for PC>Mobile, and reverse.
    Kies has solved my problem.
    Also, after having used Kies, I can NOW find the MP4 files in DCIM/Camera (as you say prolongEx), using Windows Explorer, where before I could not. It's is one of those 'go figure' outcomes.
    Also, I made a test video with phone, and did not have Kies open. But Explorer was able to find the video in the DCIM/Camera folder, as one would expect.
    So, I really don't know what the deal is, but all works now.
    Thanks for your support.

    This is a partial view of the KIES window, with video properties panel open, showing path of file.
