Is the iPhone set up to sync with iTunes on your Mac? –  Synesthetic Symphony Mar 2 '12 at 15:42

Depends on how you plan to play it on the iPhone. Both following ways require iTunes and an iPhone connected to it by cable or wireless.

  1. If you want to copy it to your Media library and play it natively you will need to:

    • Select your device
    • Click on Movies tab
    • Check Sync Movies and check the desired movie from your iTunes library
  2. If you use an app (such as VLC) to play it you will need to:

    • Select your device
    • Click on Apps tab
    • Scroll to File Sharing and select desired app from list
    • Press on Add.. button and select desire movie from file chooser dialog

Alternately, you can share/stream your movie to your iPhone over wireless connection if you don't want to take it with you.

Dropbox is always an answer when transferring/syncing files to your iPhone. It's easy; just drop a file in your Dropbox folder and it will show up on your iPhone after a bit. No plugging or syncing required.

I avoiding use software that sent my file to their server. There is some file which it is confidential. –  GusDeCooL Mar 6 '12 at 8:47
    
If your movies are confidential, might be good to keep them off your iPhone altogether. –  james.garriss Mar 6 '12 at 12:24
    
yes might be, but i need to deliver the video to client. Which it is will be easier carry with iPhone. My Video is on MAC. –  GusDeCooL Mar 6 '12 at 12:52
    
Good point. You might consider an encrypted USB key as another, perhaps even safer, option. –  james.garriss Mar 6 '12 at 15:56

TransPhone is always an answer when transferring/syncing files from computer to your iPhone. It's easy and compatible with Mac system; just add a video file in your finder folder and it will show up on your iPhone after a few steps.
If your movies are less than 50 files, the free demo might be good to copy them onto your iPhone altogether.
