Upload Videos to Facebook

I have heard that videos posted directly to Facebook get a great deal even more views than those where you just link to a YouTube video clip. Okay. So Upload Videos To Facebook?

I have actually also listened to that Facebook's formulas prefer those videos posted directly to the prominent social media service over those messages where you link to a video clip that's really hosted on YouTube. Given that YouTube is a Google residential property and Google and Facebook are hostile rivals, it wouldn't shock me a little bit to find out that this really holds true which Facebook prefers its own. Makes good sense to me!

Rather, you need to click on Add Photos/Video quickly above the upgrade access location:

Click that web link and a file option home window turns up ...

In this instance, my own has the scintillating and also remarkable name of "2015-02-01 11.08.10. mov".

I select that, click "Open" as well as, well, not much takes place:

That's because the video clip really uploads after you click Post.

I'll click the Post button as well as you can see just what takes place:.

Depending upon the size of your video footage, this can take anywhere from a couple of secs to 15 mins or more. It's important you stay on this page and don't relocate away while that's taking place. Best to just do another thing ...

Eventually it'll submit, and also you're still refrained from doing:.

Now Facebook is really recoding the video clip itself to deal with all the many Facebook distribution platforms. This usually is a 5-10 minute procedure, at the end of which you'll obtain a notification like this:.
