    Does anyone know of an app that support 1080p video upload to youtube? Even better if an app out there that support uploading to a variety of sites not just youtube. Natively the iPhone support uploading of 720p video to youtube via wifi only.

    Back when the iPhone4 was release videos were limited to 320p, but an app called 720tube came out to support full 720p upload to youtube. Curious if there is one for the 1080p.

    There is Pixelpipe which support uploading to different sites, but there is a file size limit of 200mb

    Alternatively, I have found Vimeo app. I was able to upload over 3G a short 1080p video. I am not sure of their limits, but I think it is 200-500mb range a day.

    edit:
    Solution: FiLMiC Pro, but you must set the settings to store to library. If you import it auto resize to 720p

    I shoot my 1080p video using the FiLMiC Pro app which you can then upload directly from the app to Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook, Dropbox, Tumblr or an FTP server of your choice. It's my current favorite Video app (was previously using Almost DSLR app.)

    looks like it resize down to 720p when adding to the library before uploading. Although, I know vimeo does support 1080p upload as i've done it before.

    Update solution:
    I was able to upload a 1080p video to youtube via FiLMiC Pro.

    You have to record the video with FiLMiC Pro and have the setting "Save To.." set to "FiLMiC Library"

    if you have it set to Camera roll and later Import it back into FiLMiC Library it for some reason re-encodes it to 720p.

    Update2:
    Found reason why it compresses 1080p to 720p when importing. This is what the developer said

    works fine for me. I uploaded 1080p and was able to view it on youtube. Did you select youtube to play at 1080p? It doesn't default to it.

    Only new video shot by Filmic and saved to its own library can be uploaded as 1080p to youtube. If you save it to camera roll and import back into the library it will compress to 720p.

    Bugger, somehow missed this being free on thursday, I want an app that lets me record in 720p on 4S mainly, not that fussed about the rest of the features.

    FiLMiC Pro does support 720p recording, but the developer told me image stabilization is only available when recording at 1080p 30fps because the API apple provide is limited. I guess you could record at 1080p and then have FiLMiC Pro resize it to 720p afterwards.

    Usually apps that went free once often will again. Maybe Xmas?

    Main reason I want 720p option is for occasionally doing a really long recording, where recording in 1080p in first place is not easily practicable. Shame to hear the stabilisation would be lacking, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

    Getting the 64gb would have been ideal solution.. but the needs to do such recordings are so rare to not be worth the extra expense.

    Since the occasion is so rare bring a laptop or something to offload the video.

    or something like this might help http://www.dpreview.com/news/2010/2/9/zoomitiphone

    iMovie works great also for uploading 1080p video directly from your iPhone to YouTube. Here is a video I made showing how to do it. I chose iMovie over filmic because you can choose videos out of your camera roll and you don't have to record them directly from the iMovie app like you have to do with filmic.
