The time it takes to download videos from iCloud can vary depending on several factors, such as the size/quality of the video file and the speed of your Wi-Fi. Generally, downloading videos from iCloud can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. Smaller video files may download quickly, while larger files may take longer.

Here are some general estimates based on typical video file sizes:

  • 1-minute video: Depending on the quality and resolution, a 1-minute video may be between 10 MB and 100 MB in size. At a typical home broadband speed of 25 Mbps, it would take 4 to 40 seconds to download a 1-minute video from iCloud.
  • 10-minute video: A 10-minute video may be between 100 MB and 1 GB in size. At the same broadband speed, it would take around 40 seconds to 6 minutes to download a 10-minute video from iCloud.
  • 30-minute video: A 30-minute video may range from around 300 MB to 3 GB in size. At the same broadband speed, it would take around 2 - 20 minutes to download.
  • 1-hour video: At the same broadband speed, it would take 4 minutes to 40 minutes to download a 1-hour video from 600 MB to 6 GB in size.

Please note that these are just rough estimates, and actual download times may vary based on the factors mentioned earlier.

It's also worth noting that if you are downloading multiple videos at the same time, it may take longer as the download speed is divided among the different files. If you are experiencing slow download speeds, you may want to check your internet connection and try again later.
