FileWatcher and Facebook, Instagram...

Post by Andrew »

I am trying to find a way to automatically upload small video clips ( less than 600MB avi files ) to Social sites like facebook.
It would be nice if I could upload to more than 1 site also.
I am running a photo booth as a video booth. After the 10 to 15 sec. video is recorded it is stored on the local hard drive in a specific folder.
I would like to watch that folder, and every time a new file arrives in it, it is automatically uploaded to the social media sites so the customers
can view and share them.
Can this be done with FileWatcher ?
Would other software be needed to do this ?
Any ideas for an easy way to do this ?
Thnak you, - Andrew

Sure Andrew, no problem.

FW can easily detect the new files and trigger the action. The hard bit is automating the upload to Facebook.

What you need is fbcmd - http://fbcmd.dtompkins.com/

To use this you also need PHP installed on your Windows machine.
