Upload a video to the News Feed on mobile apps
From your phone, you have the option to either post an existing video from your gallery, or film a video and share it directly to the News Feed.
The maximum video upload is 100MB (roughly 3-5 minutes depending on the video quliaty you record).
Upload a pre-recorded video from your gallery by tapping the plus button in the top right of your News Feed screen, then select the video you would like to post.
Type any instructions or information in your post, selct who you would like to share it with and then click Post which will then post it to your News Feed.
To record a video directly from the News Feed, select the 'Attach Photos and Videos' option from the options at the bottom of the screen.
You will need to allow Deputy access to your camera and audio when prompted in order to allow Deputy to record through the News Feed.
Once you’ve finished recording your video, you will have the option to retake, trim or post the video into the News Feed.
