How to Upload a Video

As Facebook expands, there are more options for sharing content with others. And now, sharing videos is just as easy as sharing photos. You can add them from your computer and even an iPhone.

How to add a video from your computer

Uploading a video to Facebook includes going out into the world, recording something, and then moving it from your camera onto your computer. Now, to upload a video to Facebook, follow these steps:
  1. Choose Add Photo/Video in the Share box at the top of your Home page or Timeline.
    Options for adding photos and videos to Facebook appear.
  2. Click Upload Photos/Video.
    This expands a window that allows you to navigate your computer’s hard drive.
  3. Select a video file from your computer.
    This brings you back to Facebook, where your video is appended to your post. A filmstrip icon indicates that you’re adding a video, not a photo.
  4. (Optional) Type any explanation or comment into the Say Something About This Video box.
  5. (Optional) Select who can see this video using the Privacy menu.
    As usual, your basic options are Public, Friends Except Acquaintances, Friends, Only Me, or a Custom group of people.
  6. Click Post.
    A blue progress bar appears at the bottom of the post. Uploading a video can sometimes take a while, so be patient. When it’s ready, you'll be notified that your video is processing. This means that you need to wait a little while until your video is ready. You can use Facebook in the meantime or decide to edit the video’s info.

How to add a video from your iPhone

While a lot of stuff has changed in iOS 7, one feature that hasn’t changed much is the way you share. Agreeably, there’s a ton of cosmetic change in the way the share sheet looks and behaves, but the functionality is same.

Still, for new users of iOS 7 who’d want to upload videos to their Facebook account, here’s a simple tutorial. Note that this is a beginner-tutorial so advanced users may skip to other posts.
How to Post Videos to Facebook from iPhone on iOS 7Here is How to Post Videos on Facebook from iPhone Camera Roll
If you’ve captured a video and you want to share the video directly from the camera roll, here’s how to do it:
(for this method, you should have installed the Facebook app and logged in with your Facebook account)
  • Open the Photos app
  • Tap on the Camera Roll album to open it. If it’s already open, tap on the video to be shared.

  • Tap the share icon on bottom of the screen.
  • Then tap on “Next” from the top right corner of the screen
  • In the share sheet, you should see the Facebook icon. Tap on it.

  • A pop-up opens. Enter the details of the video. You might also want to tap on “Details” to select the size of the video. If you’re uploading a slo-mo video, make sure the setting is set to Large.

  • That’s about it. You can tap on the cog icon to select who to share with.
  • Once done with all these things, tap on “Post”

Posting Video to Facebook from the App
  • Open the Facebook app
  • Tap on Photos

  • You will be shown all photos and videos from the camera roll. It’s not a pleasant sight if you have a lot of photos and videos because everything is displayed. Videos are the ones that have numbers on them. Tap any video to select it.
  • Then, tap on the icon on bottom-right.

    Video Sharing on Facebook iPhone App
  • Now, enter the details for the video share and tap on Post.

  • You’re done!
I prefer uploading through the Camera Roll (or any other album).
