We have a small movie of iPhone screen . We would like to show that movie as if its inside an iPhone device.

So i would like to take an iPhone image, and play the movie inside its screen.

Using a mac, till now i just couldn't find any solution on how to do that . With iMovie it seems bad and very hard for editing .

Are there any other simple solution ??

Since you mention a simple solution, if you are preparing this for a presentation you could use Powerpoint or Keynote.


  • Add a layer with the photo (cropped in the center if it goes on top)
  • Add a layer with the video (cropped to the exact screen size if it goes on top)

It's quick and dirty, but works.

  • thanks, actually i have already done that using other tool but it seems there is a basic problem here, where all iPhone images on google don't fit with their proportion to the movies i record directly from an iPhone device. So even if i take that video and try to put above an iPhone image, i cant find an image that fit exactly to the movie which is 750-1334 (real iPhone screen size)

  • Oh, that's weird. What's your output final size?

I wrote a How-to guide that explains how to play a YouTube video inside an iPhone frame, using AppDemoStore platform: HOW TO: Play a YouTube Video Inside an iPhone Device Image.

The result looks like this: Starbucks iPhone App Demo Video

The advantage of this approach is that you can easily embed the video+frame into your website and it will work cross-platform. However, it works only for YouTube videos.

Give it a try and let me know if you need any help - I'm part of the AppDemoStore team.
