How can I download a video I did from my ipad to facebook with out using my desktop computer?
I just want to send it to a specific friend but I don\'t have that option?
Helped me a lot! Thanks to you! And I\'m patient also whether long or not, I just can\'t be bothered cutting film.
It depends. Follow these tips while you\'re exporting video from iMovie: 1) make it shorter. 2) make it a smaller dimension, e.g from 1080x720 to 320x240. 3) reduce the bit rate, frame rate, etc. 4) Use h.264 for a better compression ratio. FLV format is an ideal format to compress the video to a very small size, but iMovie doesn\'t support FLV, try a video converter like iSkysoft Video Converter for Mac.
