VideoUpLink for Mac helps users who take frequent videos for sharing with friends to quickly upload them. While it allows the user to save some steps required for this process, it is of little additional value.
VideoUpLink for Mac provides a free trial version, which restricts the uploads to personal Facebook pages. The unrestricted version costs $9.99. The program downloaded quickly and its installation was seamless. The application did have technical support available, and a basic Help menu provided initial user instructions. The main interface is sparse, but easy to navigate, with buttons on the top for uploading and help. It is an odd feature for the program to default to an About page at startup, but this was easy to fix. In the main upload menu, the user can first select the social network needed from a drop-down menu. During testing, Facebook was the only option available, and it wasn't clear if there are more available networks in the full version. Log-in data can then be entered for signing in. Users can then either drag and drop video files into the lower window, or manually select them. Once entered, the videos load into the program and are uploaded as quickly as would be expected.
For those who need a faster way to upload videos to Facebook, VideoUpLink for Mac performs well, but has few additional features.
