I'm trying to upload a video on a post and it keeps telling me the file is too large and the video is only like a minute and twenty seconds. I've sent longer in messages. Is there a different way to try this? Technology is so complicated these days.

Rather not share with the public. I've never put anything on facebook. Lemme try and restart my browser.

You could mark the video as 'unlisted' and then only people with the link can see it.

What's the file size of the video?

I think it's 111mb. I'm trying to post of an s8 if that's helpful. Pretty sure that's the video I want

If you have to, transfer your video from your phone to a Windows platform with Handbrake installed. Then after following the video below, your upload time and movie file size are both cut down.
