Thank you in advance for any help you are able to give. My last backup was last night and today I accidentally deleted a video from my photo stream. Is there a way to retrieve it?

Users are able to upload photos and videos to a shared stream so that the photos and videos can both be viewed on the iDevice. The Photo Stream is a built-in service of iCloud, and it allows users to save photos into the cloud, and view them with ease on all of their iOS devices if they use one Apple ID for all the devices. If the users accidentally delete the photos or videos in Photo Stream, they can retrieve them with iTunes.

As Jtorres2011 mentioned in his post, he has made a backup one day before he lost the videos, so he can recover deleted iPhone videos from the iTunes backup. Restoring iPhone with iTunes on Mac is easy to be done. When the restoring process is finished, the iPhone will restart, and then the data in the iPhone backup will be restored to iPhone. The newer the iPhone backup is, the more data are restored to iPhone. If you are not sure whether the deleted videos are in the iPhone backup or not, you can use the third party iPhone data recovery software for Mac to recover deleted videos from iPhone, as this kind of software enables users to extract data from iTunes backups without restoring the whole backup to the iOS devices.
