Facebook is a great way to share your thoughts with your friends. Suppose, you got a funny video and you want your friends to see it. Or you want to let them watch your recorded video instantly. But you don’t have any computer but a cellphone near hand. You know facebook doesn’t support uploading videos from mobile by default. So what should you do?
Yes. There is a very simple trick to upload videos on facebook using mobile.
But, You can’t upload videos directly. You have to choose the manual way.
At first, Go to your profile/timeline from mobile. Click on More Options >> below the status box.
Click on Upload Photo. You’ll find a page like a screenshot below.
Or, alternately, you can directly go to this link: http://m.facebook.com/upload.php and you’ll find the page.
You’ll see an email address, containing @m.facebook.com.
Look at the Red marked area of the following screenshot-
Now send any kinds of videos to this e-mail address.
- You can use any kinds of email providers to send this video. From wherever you send via email to that e-mail address, it’ll be published on your timeline automatically.
- It’s a secret email address, nobody knows it. So never share this email address with others. Coz whatever will have been sent to this address, it’ll be posted on your timeline.
- If you want to publish a headline of the video, write it into the Subject of the email. If you don’t upload any photo or video but write a few words into the subject and send it, it’ll be published on Facebook as a status!
