  • While attempting to transfer my video on Facebook recently, I saw a persistent error that same, “Something went wrong.”
  • Facebook instructed that I might attempt once more, so I did, solely to examine a similar error message stoning up once more.
  • I tried the “Replace Video” possibility, however that didn’t work either.
  • I couldn’t notice any resolution on-line that worked on behalf of me.
  • After attempting several suggestions,  I made a decision to run some easy video uploading experiments on my very own.
  • I finally found an easy workaround to let American state with success transfer my videos while not errors.

So i assumed I’d publish this temporary post to share the workaround. Who knows, some other person may be going crazy coping with this same error whereas attempting to induce their videos uploaded on Facebook.

Remember, this can be NOT a true fix for the problem. It’s a workaround. however one that’s operating on behalf of me.

According to Facebook Customer Service (see error message above), they’re purported to be functioning on obtaining that fixed! however within the meanwhile, this may do.
