How to Upload Videos From Your Droid Phone to Facebook

By Jennifer Habersham

While some smart phones, such as the iPhone, upload videos directly from the device to Facebook, Motorola's Android (commonly known as the Droid) does not have the capability. However, there are two different ways that you can upload videos from your Droid to your Facebook wall. While uploading videos from the Droid to Facebook via email is one way to complete the task, users have found that this route does not always work.

Things You'll Need

  • Video streaming application
  • Facebook application
  • Email

Video Streaming Application

Step 1

Download a video streaming application for the Droid. Applications such as Bloo or Qik are user favorites.

Step 2

Download the Facebook application for the Droid. Open the application and log in to your Facebook account to confirm it is working properly.

Step 3

Record a video or or access your existing videos.

Step 4

Open the video streaming software, and click on the video you want to upload. Select "Share." Choose Facebook from the available options. The video will be uploaded to your Facebook wall.

Email

Step 1

Download the Facebook application for the Droid. Once downloaded, access your Facebook account on the device.

Step 2

Click on "Upload Video" and select "Mobile Phone" from the options. Facebook will generate an email address for you to send your video to.

Step 3

Open the Droid's email application and attach the video you would like to upload to Facebook. The email's subject line is the caption for the video.

Step 4

Send the email with the video attachment to the address that Facebook generated for you. Facebook will immediately upload the video to your wall.
