Mobile uploading 3GP video to Facebook?
Having trouble with this? The facebook app only seems to support photo uploads. Online, there is a video page that says I can email the video to:
there's also email@example.com
so I did that, and got an email back saying the video format is not supported.
But, if I transfer the 3gp video to my desktop and upload it, it uploads and plays just fine.
What's up? Thanks?

Mobile Upload to Facebook
I have the Blackberry Bold

I went to my Facebook account and got the Video Application
They said it was intialized
Then I sent my Video as a MMS to firstname.lastname@example.org and also

A workaround that posts Storm video to Facebook
I was having the same problem posting video from my Storm to Facebook. I have a workaround that does the job cleanly, and lets you post video from the Storm in High Quality (480x352) rather than MMS. The setup takes a few minutes, but other than that it's no big deal.
1) If you don't have one already, establish a Twitter account.
2) Download UberTwitter to your Storm to allow posting of video to your Twitter feed (it even GPS's the location that you post from).
3) In Facebook, search applications for the Twitter app, and set it up so that your Twitter posts synchronize to your Facebook posts.
4) Use UberTwitter to post your video to Twitter (if you are in media, it comes up as one of the menu options). Once you post to Twitter, the post sync's to Facebook and your video is there.
Once the setup is done, there are really no additional steps to get the video onto Facebook- UberTwitter and the Twitter app just take care of it. It's as easy as the directions for posting to Facebook, with the advantage of higher quality video.
PS- using this method, the file size limit on MMS does not apply as UberTwitter is uploading the file via the data side of you BB plan. Also, you are not using MMS messages to send the file.

i have the same problem, trying to upload video to facebook through email. photos work fine. videos work fine if i transfer the video to my computer first and send from there. if i try to email it from my curve, it says it didn't find a photo attached to my email. i don't really want to use mms, as i don't have an mms plan and it would cost i think 50 cents per mms.
hopefully its just bugs that need to be worked out on facebook's end

How can it not be supported? It's a 3GP video shot on my Bold in the crappier 176 x 144 MMS mode.

yeah its kinda weird how if i send the video to my computer then send that exact same video to the facebook email address, it works perfectly.
is going through RIM's servers doing something, or blocking it somehow?
ive also tried uploading through other email methods, like pixelpipe and yfrog for twitter. they don't work either..

I did it...
I was able to post a video from my blackberry curve to facebook...
I did it by going to messages on the phone and clicking menu, then went to compose mms and oh I forgot I put facebooks email address of video at facebook.com this stupid thing wouldn't let me post the actual email address so look at the posts of people that show the actual email address. anyway I put that email address in my address book first. so wen I clicked on compose mms it took me to my address book and I clicked the facebook email above. then it brought up the email and I clicked menu again and went to attach video. It allowed me to choose the video I wanted and I attached it to the email and when it came back to the email I once again clicked on the menu after I wrote "video" in the body as well and I sent it... I then recieved an email back with a code that I went on my computer to facebook and under mobile video I entered the code which allowed it to recognize me and my curve so it would then post to my facebook account.... so it is possible And sorry about the spelling I suck at it...

I've just discovered ShoZu (shozu.com). It's an app that allows you to upload from the blackberry storm to YouTube. It took a while with Tech Support but it's finally working. The next step is to find an app that imports YouTube video uploads directly into one's FaceBook page.

i was able to figure out how to put videos onto my facebook and whatnot, but when i go to send the video as an mms, it tells me that the message content size exeeds limit. what does that mean, and why is it saying that...the video is like, 11 seconds long, if that.
