If you have been using the Facebook iOS app (iPhone or iPad) to upload videos in order to share in your timeline, you may wonder why the quality of the videos has diminished. The Facebook app by default does not upload HD videos, but instead compresses them before upload.
Take these steps to force Facebook to upload HD videos:
- Open Settings
- Tap on Facebook
- Now tap on Settings
- Under Video, switch ON Upload HD
Now your videos will be uploaded in HD (if the source is HD), and Facebook will also record videos in HD if you use the built-in recorder.
