How to Upload Videos onto Facebook From a Phone

Save

Many smartphones come with an integrated camera that can record video clips in addition to taking photographs. Once you've recorded a video then you might want to share it with your friends and family. The Facebook social networking site allows users to upload video clips from mobile devices. Facebook mobile applications for specific smartphones allow users to upload video through the phone's Web interface, but there's also a simple method that's available to everyone. Register for an upload email address from your Facebook account and you can email the video directly from your phone.

Things You'll Need

  • Internet access
  • Phone with email client
  • Open the Web browser on your computer or smartphone and navigate to facebook.com/mobile. Log into your Facebook account in the usual way.

  • Click the "Send My Upload Email to Me Now" button on the Facebook Mobile home page. This opens a confirmation window displaying the email address that you registered with Facebook. You can alter the email address if needed by clicking the drop-down menu. Once you've entered you're preferred email address, click the "Send Email" button. Facebook will now email you a personalized upload email address. Whenever you send a video, picture or text to Facebook with this email address, the content of the email will publish to your Facebook account.

  • Check the email inbox on your phone and copy your personalized Facebook upload email address.

  • Create a new email in your phone's email program. Attach the video clip that you want to upload to Facebook.

  • Type a description of the content of the video in the email subject line. Facebook uses the text in the email subject line to caption the video.

  • Enter the personalized Facebook upload email address into the delivery address field.

  • Send the email. This uploads the video and caption to your Facebook account. Like any other posts, this will appear on your Facebook profile and home pages.

Tips & Warnings

  • Save the personalized upload email address as a contact in your phone's address book so that you can find it easily each time you want to upload to Facebook.
