Do the videos you take on iPhone go to the iCloud? If so where do I find them on my computer? It didn't go where my pictures are.

How do I get a 2minute video to my computer? – Terri Aug 11 '12 at 18:01
I want to be able to email it but my phone won't let me without shortening it. – Terri Aug 11 '12 at 18:02

No they don't get moved to the iCloud. At least not automatically. There is a feature called Photo Stream which does exactly that with photos. But there isn't a Video Stream (yet).

Note that iCloud backups do backup your videos (and hence go to iCloud), however, they are not user accessible (except in restoring an iDevice).
