Nokia has published to the store their YouTube Video Upload app that enables users to simply and easily post their video creations to their accounts.
The app loads just fine on the Nokia Lumia 1020, which means this app may be exclusive to that device initially. Though being Nokia, we’re sure that they will deliver for their other Lumia line as they’re pretty good like that.
In playing with the app, we can share a few details, some of which you can see in the video demo above:
The app uploads over Wi-Fi and Cellular, with caveats:
- If on Wi-Fi, full 1080P is posted (or highest resolution shot at)
- If on cellular, it needs to be real short (couple of seconds) otherwise it prompts you to trim it down or wait for Wi-Fi
- Using the native ‘Share’ feature, you can send videos directly to it
- Background uploading is not supported at the moment
By default, videos are marked ‘Private’ though you can toggle this for each video upload. You can include the title, but no Tag support just yet.
The app is quite barebones and we’re sure Nokia will fine tune it over the coming weeks, but for now, it works as advertised, giving those with the Lumia 1020 a simple solution to a vexing problem.
