No doubt that the latest Samsung Galaxy smartphone S4 has the best screen and resolution in cellphone market once it is launched. Samsung is good at producing high-quality screen. With a big and high-resolution screen, it’s wonderful to watch your videos/movies library with it. Well, do you have the idea how to transfer videos from your PC to Galaxy S4? If not, read on the page and found out some tips and tricks.

In fact, there are various ways for you to transfer video and audio files to your Galaxy S4. Here are the top 5 suggestions:

1. Transfer from PC.
2. Transfer from a PC with Samsung Kies.
3. Transfer from a PC with Windows Media Player.
4. Receive via Bluetooth.
5. Receive via Wi-Fi.

In this article, I’m going to show you the three most common methods, which are transferring files directly from PC storage, using Windows Media Player and Samsung Kies.

Method 1: Transfer music and video files from PC

1. Connect your Galaxy S4 to your PC using the USB data cable.

2. On your phone, a USB icon will appear in the top Notification bar. Drag the notification bar downwards and then tap on the Connected as a media device.

3. On the USB PC connection screen, ensure the Media device (MTP) checkbox is ticked. Now, you’re ready to transfer files between your PC and phone.

4. Open up your PC Windows Explorer, and you should see your Galaxy S4 shows up as a removable disk.

5. Access the phone storage via Windows Explorer. Here, you should see the Video and Music folders.

6. Simply drag/copy-and-paste your music or video files from your computer to the respective folders. On your Galaxy S4, the music and video players will automatically recognize the files.

7. Alternatively, you can create a new folder in your phone storage or external memory card to store these files. The Galaxy S4 will scan storage and list them accordingly on the music and video players automatically.

Method 2: Transfer music and video files using Windows Media Player

1. Connect your Galaxy S4 to your PC using the USB data cable.

2. Run Windows Media Player on your PC.

3. On the left side of the Windows Media Player, you will see little icons which represent the phone internal and external storage (only visible if your phone has an external memory card). For this tutorial, I will select the phone storage.

4. Next, move to the right side and click the Sync tab.

5. Drag the music files, videos or even a playlist to the Sync list area. Note: You can drag these files from either the PC folders or Windows Media Player library.

6. Once you have all the files in the Sync list, click Start sync.

7. Now, move to the left, and click Sync status to verify if those files are successfully copied over to your phone.

8. Start playing those songs on your Samsung Galaxy S4.

2. Connect your Galaxy S4 to your PC using the USB data cable.

3. Click Music (or Videos) below a device name under Connected devices.

4. Click the + sign at the top right of the Kies screen. If your phone has external SDcard, then you should see the Internal and external memory options. For this tutorial, I will select Internal Memory.

5. Next, through the Windows Open dialog, select the music files (or videos) that you would like to add.

Wow, above these are three simple ways for you to transfer or copy video/audio files to Galaxy S4. Hope it can be useful to you.

P.S. Before adding video files to Galaxy S4 for smooth playback, the priority you need to concern is the Samsung Galaxy S4 video format. From its specs, we know S4 video format is limited to H.264, H.263, MPEG-4. If you want to transfer other videos to it, you need to change the format first.
