Share Videos to FaceBook, YouTube, & Vimeo from QuickTime Player in OS X
The OS X social sharing features new to Mountain Lion let you quickly publish images and videos to a variety of places, and using Share Sheets within QuickTime Player you can even publish videos directly to YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook, right from the app.
- Hover over any video opened in QuickTime Player and click the [>] Sharing button
- Select the destination for the video
- Use the appropriate login, set a title and description, and choose “Upload” to let the video publish
A progress bar indicates how long it will take to upload and publish the video to the chosen destination, and the entire process is handled by QuickTime Player, you don’t need to go to the destination websites at all.
Sharing directly from QuickTime Player gives you options that aren’t otherwise there in the Finder with Quick Look’s Sharing Sheets, like YouTube and Facebook. Facebook integration will come officially this Fall with OS X 10.8.2 – likely alongside the iOS 6 release on September 21 – but it’s interesting to see it already there in QuickTime Player.
