Video Uploading with the Facebook SDK for PHP

Uploading video files to the Graph API is made a breeze with the SDK for PHP.

Facebook\FileUpload\FacebookVideo(string $pathToVideoFile)

The FacebookVideo entity represents a local or remote video file to be uploaded with a request to Graph.

There are two ways to instantiate a FacebookVideo entity. One way is to instantiate it directly:

use Facebook\FileUpload\FacebookVideo;

$myVideoFileToUpload = new FacebookVideo('/path/to/video-file.mp4');

Alternatively, you can use the videoToUpload() factory on the Facebook\Facebook super service to instantiate a new FacebookVideo entity.

$fb = new Facebook\Facebook(/* . . . */);

$myVideoFileToUpload = $fb->videoToUpload('/path/to/video-file.mp4'),

Usage

The following example uploads a video for a user.

// Upload a video for a user
$data = [
  'title' => 'My awesome video',
  'description' => 'More info about my awesome video.',
  'source' => $fb->videoToUpload('/path/to/video.mp4'),
];

try {
  $response = $fb->post('/me/videos', $data);
} catch(Facebook\Exceptions\FacebookSDKException $e) {
  echo 'Error: ' . $e->getMessage();
  exit;
}

$graphNode = $response->getGraphNode();

echo 'Video ID: ' . $graphNode['id'];
