To upload videos on your social media accounts, please click on "Share Videos" or "Share New Video Post".


Here you can choose if you want to share a video link or a video file:
1) You can either enter a video link (for example, from YouTube or Vimeo).
2) You can upload a video from your media library or from your computer.


After clicking on “Share on video networks” next to your selected video file, you’ll see the post preview editor. Here you can optionally customize your social media posts for each of your connected accounts, for example, with a video description or a personal comment.


Now you can click on "Share" to share your video including text on social media.


After sharing your video content, you can find the sharing report for each video file by clicking on "Details" next to the file in the "Share Videos" section.

Information about failed posts of video files can be found in the "Notifications" section in the Blog2Social menu.


You can share your videos on the following social networks:
