You can do so by using the following steps:

If it's the first time for you to connect your phone with the PC, your PC may need a few minutes to install the driver. By default, your phone will use MTP as the connection mode.

  5. Tap at the top of the Kies screen and then select Internal memory if you'd like to add the videos to the DCIM\Camera folder in the internal storage of your phone, or select External memory if you'd like to add the videos to the DCIM\Camera folder in the SD card.
  6. Navigate to the folder in your Windows PC where the videos you want to add to the phone are placed in.
  7. Select the required videos you want to add to your phone and then Click the Open button.
  8. The selected videos will be added to your phone.
