    im having problems uploading videos to facebook from my evo. tried some different methods such as getting a special email address from facebook for my account so i can email videos to my profile...it works fine for photos but will not post videos from my evo ( 3gp format issue?)
    i hate qik and have read about people using that to upload videos to facebook. tried it and with me its either a hit or a miss meaning sometimes it uploads and other times it doesnt ( and most of my videos are not huge usually 14 seconds and always under 30 seconds)
    youtube...ahhh dont get me started on that i have to dial down the quality of the video from 720p to something that looks like a pixelated mess to upload videos to facebook in a timely manner..i dont like to wait hours or days for a video to finish uploading and yes i do it over wifi and no its not a slow connection
    i guess im wondering if theres a way that doesnt involve transferring files to my pc converting them to another format and uploading from there...or is there an app that works atleast 90% of the time to upload videos from my evo without having to first upload them to a secondary site and then link to facebook?
    i just have a hard time accepting the fact that it was painless uploading videos to facebook from a dumbphone and that its such a huge pain on my evo

    I upload from my pc straight to facebook. No converting required.

    As for EVO-Facebook, I've never tried that one so can't comment.

    I noticed this as well this past weekend. I usually never upload videos but happened to have one. This is a common feature of other facebook builds, so should be a part of the Evo's. HTC or the Facebook app developer need to get on the ball.

    For what its worth, i tried all this too and wondered WTF was going on.
    uploading pics is a sinch and does it real quick.
    For vid there is no option. I went to the site directly in a browser and always fails to load the vids.
    Kinda sucky, but every FB app I have seen so far blows in some way.
