How Do I Attach and Send Videos?

Note: Video uploading and posting is currently only fully supported for Facebook and Twitter. You can still upload and send a video to other social sites, however, these will appear as a link preview. Clicking on the link preview will open the video in a new tab

This is also how the video will show if it does not meet the guidelines and restrictions set out by Facebook and Twitter.

 

1. Open the Compose Box and select a Facebook and/or Twitter service that you want to schedule or post out to.

2. Click on the Attach button.

 3. The 'Add Media' window will open. 

  4. In the 'Upload File' section, you can either drag and drop your video file, or click on the Browse Files button to upload a video file. 

 5. Please make sure the video meets the size limit (250MB) and is no more than 1 hour long.

 6. Once attached, you now have the option to enter a title and description/caption for your video. The description is taken from the message field.

  7. All done! Now, you can simply send or schedule your video post to Facebook, Twitter and/or YouTube

 8. Please keep in mind that once the video is uploaded, another attachment cannot be added. You'll need to delete the currently uploaded video to attach an image or another video.

 

 Additional information on how the videos look when they are posted on social sites: 

 

Facebook- The video should be posted in the same way as a Facebook native video, and it should also auto-play. Example:

 

Twitter- Sendible checks the videos on upload to see if it's compatible with Twitter. If the video isn't compatible, we setup an HTML page and embed the video on that page. We then link to that HTML page on Twitter.

Please note that this includes the video being 30 seconds or less, if it is, it will be embedded and play as a native video. Sendible can post longer videos, however, these will not be embedded and will link to an HTML page (see above). 


In this case, the video will display like this: 



Please see Twitter's requirements for native videos: https://dev.twitter.com/rest/media/uploading-media

If these requirements are met the video should upload as a video and not an HTML page.

In this case, the video will display like this:
