  1. NOT WORKING!!! :( Video is complete 78,2 MB of 78,2 MB finished but still it says wait while your video is uploading.. its been like that for an hour now...

    IF IT AINT BROKEN!! DONT FIX IT!!! (means why fuck up things that work) ???? thinking about the new timeline and the old way of uploading..

  2. You know if it a large video it can take time, even after being uploaded FB still needs to convert it into various formats. So your pals using their phones, iPads and other gadgets get to see it. Converting it on encoding it sometimes take a lot of time. Once done it will be available in all the various video player formats.

  3. how to post on timeline a large video from youtube ? :-?

  4. There are two ways to this
    Below the video on youtube click the share button and then choose the fb share button and share it on your profile. if you have Timeline enabled it will appear there and also on your news feed.

    The other way is to highlight the URL when you get the video to play. The URL of the video appears in the taskbar and looks like this www.youtube.com followed by a string of characters. Click once it turns blue to show that it's highlighted. right-click and select copy or use ctrl + C. Then click inside your status bar, right-click and choose paste or crtl + v. Your video gets highlighted. You can delete the URL and then write a comment. Click on post and you're done. Your video appears with the play button. Hope this helps. Do let me know
