Top 5 Simple Ways to Upload & Share Videos from Your iPhone

Apple makes sharing photos very easy with Shared Photo Streams, but Apple does not make uploading and sharing videos from iPhone as simple as it does for photos. Thanks to some of third-party applications, there are simple ways to upload and share your videos without having to make a wired connection to your computer, such as by using cloud services like Dropbox, YouTube, and apps like Photo Sync, etc. It is really easy to use, and below is the summary information I collected special for all of you, just check it out.

1.  Default iPhone Methods

Open the Camera roll / album, and find the video you will upload, and then tap the share button on the bottom-left of the video, you can share that video via Mail, Messages, and YouTube. You must have a YouTube account in order to share your videos to youtube.

2.  YouTube Capture

YouTube Capture (free) is a dedicated YouTube capture app that allows iPhone user to shoot video directly and then upload your captures to your selected YouTube account after touch up videos with color correction, stabilization, trimming, and music tracks. And it also allows you post videos publicly or privately, in which only people with the link or specified users can view it.

3.  PhotoSync
PhotoSync ($1.99) is the app that can help you wireless transfer your photos/videos from iPhone to your computer and other iOS devices. To use this app, you need to download the app to your iPhone, and the PhotoSync companion application for your OS X or Windows.

To set up video (and photo) transfers, you simply pair the two mobile and desktop apps, open PhotoSync, select the videos you want to transfer, and then tap the red sync button for the transfer to begin. With PhotoSync, you can also configure the app to transfer videos to your Dropbox account, to other iOS devices with PhotoSync app installed, and to numerous online video and photo sharing sites like Google+ and Google Drive, Flickr, Facebook and a few others.

4.  Dropbox for iPhone
Dropbox lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily.

To start with, tap the Preferences settings in the app and select Camera Upload. From there, you simply enable the feature. Dropbox will automatically start copying all the photos and videos on your device to a Dropbox folder in your account entitled Camera Upload. It will do this again with new non-uploaded photos and videos each time you open the Dropbox app. The process can actually be done in the background, so you can switch to other apps without interfering with the transfer.

5.  Google+ Instant Upload
If you’re a Google+ user, the Google+ iPhone app includes an Instant Upload feature for automatically syncing photos and videos to a private album in your Google+ account.

You can select to have videos uploaded only over WiFi or 3G or over WiFi only. This feature is also for when you select photos from your private album and post them to your Google+ Circles. However, remember that you’re Google+/Google Drive account only allows for 5GB of free space. If you have a lot of media content on your iPhone, this could eat up your storage space fairly quickly.

Let us know if you have other ways to upload and share videos from iPhone.
