Reasons why you are unable to upload or post videos on the Facebook app

Below are the reasons why you may be having trouble uploading videos on the Facebook app.

Check the video format

Not all video formats are unloadable, and, although rare, your videos may be in an incompatible format depending on your device.

The most common would be mp4, but do check your video file format.

Check the video size

Even if the video file is in a compatible format, it may not be uploaded if the size is too large.

The video’s must be less than 20 minutes and under 1GB if uploading from a laptop and 100MB if uploading from a smartphone.

Check free storage space

You may not be able to upload a video if your device is running low on free storage space.

Even if you were able to upload the video, the performance will be affected and the procedure will take longer.

Problems with the app or with Facebook

The problem lies within the app if you were able to upload via the web browser where you couldn’t on the app.

If you are unable to upload from both the app as well as the web browser, then the problem lies with Facebook.

What to do when you are unable to post or upload videos through the Facebook app

Below are the solutions to not being able to post videos on the Facebook app.

Check the video format

The mp4 format is most commonly used, but it may be that the file format of your video is preventing you from posting it on Facebook.

You should check the recording file format when filming the video you wish to post and make sure it is set to either one of MP4, wmv or mov.

If the file format isn’t supported, you should change the format with a video editing software on your computer.

Check the video size

You’ll need to edit the video if the video you wish to post is over 20 minutes in length of 100MB in size.

Shortening the video or lowering the quality of the video will allow you to reduce it to an uploadable size.

You may not be able to edit depending on the model of your smartphone, so it is advisable that you do the editing on your computer.

Check free storage space

You should delete unnecessary data and cache if you are running low on free storage.

You need at least 1GB, and performance will improve if you have more than 3GB.

Be sure not to delete important data along with unwanted apps and media data.

Problems with the app or with Facebook

If the problem lies within the app, it can either be a problem with the app itself or a temporary problem.

Problems with Facebook will be temporary issues.

You should let some time pass before restarting the app and trying to upload the video again.

If you are still unable to upload the video, or if there are other issues, the best thing to do would be to contact customer services.

Summary

  • Check video file format
  • Check size
  • Check free storage space
  • Problems relating to the app or to Facebook

Those were the fixes to the main causes for you not being able to upload videos on Facebook.

Not being able to upload a video is most commonly due to the video’s format or size.

You should keep the video’s length and size in mind when filming a video you want to upload.

I hope the article was of use to all Facebook app users.
