If you have just shot a video on an iPhone and want to send it to someone, this guide is for you.
What does this look like?
First, you need to shoot the video.
Second, we need to get that video off of your phone. To do this, we will upload it to Dropbox.
Third, once the video is uploaded, we need to share that video with someone else.
This will become a pretty common series of tasks.
Make sure you are already using Dropbox
Step 1 – Install the Dropbox App
Make sure you have Dropbox installed on your iPhone. If you do, move onto step 2.
Upload your video to Dropbox
Step 2 – Open Dropbox
Step 3 – Press the “create” button
Step 4 – Press “Upload Photos”
Step 5 – Press the video you want to upload.
I only use my iPhone for demonstrations, so you may have to scroll down to find the video you want to share if you have a lot of videos and photos on your phone.
Step 6 – Upload
Make sure there is a checkbox next to “upload to Dropbox.” If there isn’t, press on this area first.
If there is a checkbox next to “upload to Dropbox,” then click “Upload.”
Step 7 – Find the video you uploaded in Dropbox
As you can see, I am on the “files” screen. I scrolled down to find the video that I just uploaded.
Once you find it, you will click on the circle with the (…) where the red arrow is pointed.
Step 8 – Click “Copy Link”
Step 9 – Pick the app that you want to use to share the link
If you want to share your video over a text message, click Message. If you want to share your link over email, click Mail.
