Nokia Releases “YouTube Upload” App, Allows Sharing Videos From Library

YouTube Upload

One of the major nuisances I first faced with WP was the fact that most app couldn’t share videos recorded with the phone after they were saved. Meaning to upload to YouTube you had to open the youtube app, record the video then upload; far from the perfect solution, especially for those spontaneous moments. Once gain Nokia have swooped in to the rescue with the latest app “YouTube Upload” which does just that, uploads your videos to YouTube.

This app helps you to share your videos quickly and easily with your friends, and works for all videos shot on Nokia Lumia phones with Windows Phone 8. Simply select the video in the Photos app and share, or upload after capturing and trimming with the Nokia Video Trimmer through share option. Share your video over Wi-Fi or a mobile data connection, but be sure to check your network operator’s data charges first.


At the moment it seems this app is only available for the Lumia 1020, but there doesn’t seem to be any reason for it not to come to the rest of the Lumia family (since Wvga is listed as a supported resolution as well).

If you’re lucky enough to have a 1020 at the moment go ahead and grab the app from the link below:

              Probably just missing some final update the Lumia 1020 has. Give it time, I’m sure this will come to other devices as well.

              Kudos to Nokia for keeping up their development efforts!

              • djmuzi

                But they put searchable apps in the store and the customer can’t instal them! This is not nice from that point of view 🙁

    We developers have many limitations in order to Access the video library or to process the video frames, because the api is closed in that regard. That’s why you cann’t see a single video editing application in the whole market. I’m looking forward to a SDK update along with the SO update that fixes this.

      I cant eben upload Videos to Skydrive!?!

      • pablo

        I believe that it’s supported. I’ve implemented donwload in the application to allow importing videos. And upload is in the pipeline..

  • I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your site. It appears like some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Many thanks

      I watched a Video review of this app. It works only on the 1020. So no wonder I can’t install on 925.

  • Very good blog post. I definitely love this website.
    Keep it up!

  • Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins
    to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.

    Any suggestions?
