VideoUpLink for iPhone

VideoUpLink does not force you to register for another service to unleash its functionality. Install and start using it right away with your existing destination accounts. The title screen shows a local TV station tower. The satellite dishes below receive incoming video. The tower provides microwave links to San Francisco’s Sutro Tower where the video is ultimately broadcast, very much the spirit of VideoUpLink.
VideoUpLink maintains a run log of activities. The run log is updated after every upload attempt, and provides error or success notification.

You can specify email notification here. An email will be generated with the FTP URLs of each uploaded file. The filename given by the iPhone OS out of the video editor is used as the destination file name. The email will also include a link to the map location of where you were when you performed the upload, and the device name. You can specify a folder on the destination server, if it does not exist it will be created for you. If you select Active FTP mode, the designated port number will be used and an active transfer will be attempted. Tap Upload and the top right to begin the transfer. All of the FTP settings that you type in will be saved for later use.

When you tap log in, VideoUpLink will close and mobile Safari will open to the MySpace login page – you may need to zoom in to see it clearly. After login, another web page will appear asking for permission to upload to your profile. When that is done, VideoUpLink will automatically relaunch. Navigate back to the MySpace screen and you will see that you are logged in a video uploading can commence. As with the Facebook upload, your current location can be included in each posting.
