How to Post Videos to Facebook from iPhone or iPad (on iOS 7)

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 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)

Step #1. Open the Photos app.

Step #2. Tap on the Camera Roll album to open it. If it’s already open, tap on the video to be shared.

Step #6. 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.

Step #3. 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.

Step #4. Then, tap on the icon on bottom-right.

        • Check out restrictions (Settings -> General -> Restrictions) to
          see if any apps are blocked. Also, make sure you have not installed any
          Cydia tweak that removed Facebook option from the share sheet. Note that
          you should have FB app AND logged in under Settings -> Facebook
          which is iOS’s default setting page for linking your fb account.

          • When I click on the FB icon it says there was an error accessing account. It wants me to enter my password, but once you enter the password the only option to click is “delete account”. I am already logged in to the FB account and the app works fine. I changed my password yesterday on my PC and logged in on the iphone with the new password and that works fine

  1. This really help me a lot. It gives an ideal thing for me on how to properly use the iPhone for sharing some video on facebook. Thanks for the best tips and information that you have shared here.That was so useful for me.

  2. Ok . I did this I got still image of a song a band was playing audio . In other words audio with a photo behind it .

  3. I have iPhone 5s and am trying to post a video to FB. I received an icon with the ‘allow photo access’ title.
    If I grant this permission, can I assume FB and FB friends will only be able to view this one video of my choosing and NOT all videos and photographs in My iPhone Library?

      • Thank you for responding. I kind of figured that had to be how it worked and posted it shortly after I made my inquiry.
        Are you familiar with Watermark+? Trying to figure out if there is a way to save (perhaps in a ‘Watermark’ file) pictures I watermark and send to FB, email, etc. I am stumped on this and hope you can help as it would save LOTS of time if it can be done. I am using 8.4 Software on my iPhone 5S and iPad mini if it helps.
        Thanks again, I appreciate any help you might provide.

  4. Why can’t I reply to comments whilst uploading video from iPhone to FB? It gives à message saying are you sure you want to leave this page

  5. When I upload to FB using safari, it is ridiculously slow. I don’t use the app as its too glitchy. Any ideas why it would be so slow?
