In this lesson, you learn how to hack your smartphone to upload existing videos to Vine.
As you’ve learned throughout this book, you upload videos to Vine using the Vine mobile app. You shoot the video using the app on your mobile phone or tablet, and then upload the video directly from the app to the Vine service.
What about videos you’ve shot otherwise? Say you have a short video you shot with your iPhone’s built-in video camera, and have stored in your phone’s library. Is there any way to upload that existing video to Vine?
By default, the answer is no. Vine is designed to use videos shot exclusively with the Vine mobile app.
