Have you ever experienced uploading a video on Facebook only to discover that it would not appear on your Facebook newsfeed? This issue can be bothersome, especially if you want to share the video urgently on Facebook.

Fortunately, there are several ways to fix your video upload not showing up on Facebook’s newsfeed issue. In this article, we will provide fixes to resolve the issue.


How to fix the uploaded video not showing up on Facebook’s newsfeed?

In this section, we’ll explain the reasons and the fixes simultaneously so that you can go back to viewing your video on Facebook’s newsfeed quickly.

There are several possible reasons for this issue. Some of the most common ones are:

Your video format is unsupported by Facebook

Facebook only supports MP4 and MOV video formats. If your video is in a different format, Facebook may fail to process it or display it on your newsfeed.

To fix this, you can use any of the video conversion tools available online for free or buy a premium version of the video conversion software.

While you’re at it, it is important to note that Facebook limits the duration and size of the videos you upload. The maximum duration is 240 minutes, while the maximum size of the video you can upload is 4 GB.

If your video exceeds these limits, Facebook may reject it or take longer to process it. You can trim or compress your video using video editing software or online tools.

Uploading videos requires a strong and stable internet connection. If your internet connection is slow or lagging, it can hamper the video uploading process and may fail or take longer to complete.

To resolve the slow internet issue, there are certain things that you must first take care of:

  • First, ensure there isn’t any internet outage in your area. You can ask your Internet Service Provider for the information or visit their website.
  • If there is no outage, it is time to check the hardware to ensure they are not damaged. Check all the hardware associated with the internet connection. That includes your router, modem, power cable, and the main power source, among others. Ensure that all the hardware is undamaged and working properly. If you notice any damage, change it asap.
  • If the hardware is fine, then it is time to check the connections. Make sure that the cables are secured firmly in the proper ports.
  • Sometimes, there is too much distance between the WiFi and the receiving device. Make sure that the distance is less. Or, you can directly connect the internet to your computer as it provides a more stable speed than WiFi.
  • Also, remove any other electronic appliances that might interfere with the WiFi signals. While at it, place the WiFi on a raised platform so that the devices catch signals seamlessly.
  • If many devices are connected to your network, remove them before playing games on the internet, as the devices share the limited bandwidth of the plan. You can also think of upgrading your existing internet plan

Fixing your internet will help you resolve the video upload not appearing in Facebook’s newsfeed issue.

Facebook servers are down

Occasionally, Facebook may experience technical issues that affect its services, including video uploading.

If Facebook servers are down, there is nothing much you can do but wait it out. Visit any third-party websites such as Downdetector to assess the Facebook server situation.


You are using a VPN

VPNs indeed allow you to bypass geolocation barriers, and you can view the content without any restrictions. VPNs also indeed hide your IP address and protect your privacy.

However, there are several issues that you will face while using VPN to run Facebook. Some VPNs may slow down your internet speed, or the change in your IP address can cause issues with Facebook security and verification systems.

So, a good idea is to turn off VPN while using Facebook and other social media.


Your Facebook app does not meet the requirements

If you’re uploading videos on the Facebook app, you must ensure that the app meets all the requirements for uploading videos.

This includes the camera and microphone permissions and ensuring enough space on your mobile device. You should also use the latest version of the Facebook app to save yourself from outdated app-related hassles.
