Hi, fairly new to android nexus 5 but loving it. Just wanting to know the best way to transfer videos from my phone to my PC. Is Airdroid the best way to go?

What's the best way to use it? Just through your browser?

Yes, through your browser afaik is the only way to use Airdroid. It's pretty amazing.

I know wireless is all the rage, but you can also use a micro USB cable. Your PC sees the phone as an external hard drive and then you just drag and drop from the DCIM folder.
Sorry if I'm missing something in the OP's question.

I agree that a simple USB cable is the fastest way, or if I was going wireless I would use ES File Explorer on my phone to copy the files to a networked computer.

Superbeam is a very fast wifi option.

Thanks for all of your replies. Ahh the DCM folder via USB is what I was wanting. I just didn't have the right folder at first.
