IMG_0036The iPhone 3GS is great for capturing video and uploading it directly to YouTube, but what if you don’t use YouTube and want to upload you videos to Facebook? The Facebook App, for iPhone, supports mobile picture uploading, but does not have a video upload feature, yet. I found an app called, “VideoUp for Facebook“, from Raizlabs. It seamlessly intergrates with Facebook, to upload video taken with your iPhone 3GS, that is stored in your camera roll. Video uploading is coming in the 3.0 version of the Facebook App, for iPhone, but this will easily get the job done, until the Facebook upgrade is released.

The interface is very simple. Just 3 simple steps to get your video uploaded.

Step 1: Connect to Facebook, allowing VideoUp access to your Facebook account. Just enter your email and password, just like you were logging into Facebook.


Step 2: Select a video. You can either record a new video, or select one from your camera roll, that you’re already recorded.

Step 3: Describe and Send. Name your video, and/or give a brief description. Then tap upload. That’s it! Depending on your connection, the video uploads quite fast. VideoUp works over WiFi and 3G, but obviously uploads quicker, over WiFi.

Once uploaded, here’s what it looks like on your Facebook page:

I think this is a great solution for uploading video directly to Facebook, that is very simple to use, but it may not be worth the $.99 price tag, knowing that the official Facebook App will have this feature included for free.
