    Don't have the phone on me right now, but did you try going to the video and "share"? I never done it, but there should be a "via facebook" option there

    Would that be through the gallery? I f so yay when I press on the vid it just goes straight to playing it rather than pulling up a menu screen. I tried in the video screen as well. nanda

    try holding down the video and see if the share option shows up?

    I know after you take a picture or video, there's a share icon on my Incredible.

    Go to the camera app and view the video. A share menu is there, but unfortunately facebook is not an option for video, only for photos. You can email video to facebook though.

    Yes, this is the problem I have too! SO you can't post videos to FB via the Droid LG Vortex either? Stupid phone...

    Unless it has changed, and I am fairly certain it hasnt, FaceBook does not support video being uploaded that was taken by phone. Only videos located on the PC or shot by webcam are supported unless you post a link to a video sharing website such as YouTube.
