Videos Missing on iPhone After Upgrading to iOS 8.x? How to Fix

Some iPhone users say that videos are missing from the Videos app after upgrading to iOS 8 (or updating to iOS 8.1). Strange as the issue sounds, iCloud Photo Library appears to be a very possible culprit.

If you recently turned on iCloud Photo Library, that would upload your Videos (and other media like photos) to your iCloud Photo Library account. The videos app shows videos that are on your iPhone and on iCloud. Sometimes, this may not be true. And that causes the videos to go missing.

When the Show All Videos toggle is disabled, your iPhone will only show videos that are on the device (and not the ones on iCloud). When you turn on this switch, you are enabling the iPhone to show videos that are on your iCloud too.
