This answer will be short: VLC. Has everything you need except the rotation. It's a media player, not a video editor. To alter the playback speed in VLC: Go to to Playback → Playback Speed. You can also alter the playback speed using ⌘= and ⌘-. For rotation, as user Iwillnotexist Idonotexist notes in the comments below, you can go to Window -> Video ...

I use mplayer in its Cocoa form MplayerX like VLC it can't edit the video but just plays it. (There is a version in the Mac App Store but it is old as Apple does not now allow some of the functions the are needed (although I had no issues with it until I upgraded to Yosemite) To increase speed go to AVS->Increase Speed (or decrease) or ⌘] or ⌘[ I prefer ...

I use Movist. It's a native video player that used to be free but is now sold at the App Store. Old versions can still be downloaded for free, but they use an old version of ffmpeg that doesn't even support Hi10P, and the application has changed a lot since then. Both Movist and MPlayerX have nicer UIs than VLC in my opinion, and they are also faster at ...

You can with Yosemite & iOS 8 Launch Quicktime player & select File > New Movie Recording [Cmd/opt/N] Click on the small downward-facing triangle next to the record button. This lets you select an alternate recording source, which now includes your iPhone or iPad.

Try a peer-to-peer file transfer service to move the video directly from your phone to computer, like BitTorrent Sync. This would be faster then using a cloud solution like uploading to Dropbox or YouTube and then downloading it again. It's very simple to use too, just download the BitTorrent Sync app on your phone and Mac, turn on the Camera Roll backup ...

This is what I do. I use the VLC player almost exclusively since it can play anything. Since you want to save space and eventually download to youtube I would recommend a 2 step process. First record it in high quality. Then use a small app called Flv Crunch to convert "any" file format to flv type that is enormous size reduction and compatible with ...

You should try the following: If you have it, do try with iMovie. (Menu “File” -> “Import Media…”) Try AirDrop. You have to be on iOS 8 and Mac OS X Yosemite for AirDrop to work between an iPhone and a Mac though. If you can successfully make a backup of your iPhone using iTunes, I can walk you through the retrieving of the video from the iTunes backup. If ...

I use Photo Transfer app http://www.phototransferapp.com to transfer photos and videos between my iDevices and my Mac, though I admit I haven't tried to transfer as large a file as you need to do. It supports lots of formats and preserves the metadata, too. It uses WiFi or Bluetooth.

Apple makes a pro app for Mac, Compressor, that can handle this task, but might be overkill. It can handle batch jobs etc. There is also Roxio Toast which is a DVD burning utility but has a nice suite of tools for video conversion. You could use this to make DVDs or Blu Rays of all those vids and then get them off your system entirely. A Blu Ray burner is ...

I use Pro Camera 8 for video recording. You can reduce the resolution of the video down to 640x480 and 30 FPS, which should result in significantly smaller videos than using the default Camera app. Pro Camera also has a zoom slider (which is disabled by default) that can do digital zoom up to 6x. Videos save to the Camera Roll and can be synced with your ...

The easiest way to to stream it via AirPlay. You could also use a cable to hook up your TV, or stream it from an iDevice. You could also put in on a supported video stream site (like YouTube), and play it from the Apple TV's app. There are more ways then I'm able to list in the answer, so explore!

You might want to try iExplorer. Because it can directly access your iPhone as a disk device, iExplorer may be able to move the movie file to your Mac without any of the problems associated with other apps. iExplorer can also open and read iTunes backups, which may be another way to extract the movie. My wife inadvertently wiped her iPhone a few months ago, ...

Haven't tried this myself but this seems like what you might be looking for. It mirrors iPad to the Mac or PC wirelessly. No jail breaking required. http://www.airsquirrels.com/reflector/

The 2012 server is much more powerful than the gimped high end 2014 version and has beaten it in speed tests, too. You cannot install your own RAM in the 2014 model. You would see no difference in regard to playback between the two, a MacBook Air i5 could handle that task just as ably. Where you will see the difference is with conversion times and ...
