    Not sure what the deal is with mine. Tried two videos and they both download as full speed.

    tried emailing a video and that played in slow motion but when I use iPhoto or image capture to get it off my phone it plays at full speed.

    So I tried uploading to facebook, sending as a message, downloading to my computer and nothing worked. The only thing that worked was emailing it to myself. The problem with this is the video can't be over a certain length.

    apparently less than 59 seconds. But not sure the exact amount.

    So I restored my phone to factory and it still does not transfer the videos in slow motion.

    Upload to youtube and download and they will contain the slow mo part.

    Loses quality and I shouldn't have to do that. It should download properly without going through those extra steps. It seems to work for other people correctly.

    I shared one of my slow mo vids via AirDrop to my daughter who then put it on Instagram. It displayed it in slowmo.

    I know we are talking about Facebook, but someone said they won't upload to YouTube because it can't accept 120FPS. If that's true I'll be disappointed. I'd have guessed the same for Facebook but another member said theirs uploaded "as expected." :confused:

    Would it help to load the video into iMovie and then save it through that? Not sure if that accomplishes anything, just a thought.

    The slow motion videos are played back at 30fps a second (that's why it's in slow motion - you recorded at 120 fps and playback at 30fps).
    So Facebook just needs to display 30 fps, which it does.

    There's something flakey with Apples software when sharing the slow motion videos.

    If you have to open in iMovie that defeats the purpose of having that feature built into the camera. Something ain't right.

    So i guess it sounds like it is not just me. Maybe we will see some bug fixes in the future.

    AirDrop to an iPhone 5 also worked.

    I think uploading in the Facebook app makes it full speed whereas doing it directly from the camera roll and sharing to Facebook means it uploads in slowmo.

    That's what seemed to happen to me earlier anyway.

    Yes, has to be exported from the share sheet to show in slow mo.

    Which means you can use the email back door for any service not listed.

    Not a chance I am downloading my friends list into my contacts. Is there a way to turn that off?

    I don't have my Facebook friends list in my contacts. I simply shared it to my wall from the camera app.

    When I was about to do that it brought up a screen that said my friends would be added to my contacts in my phone.

    Is there a way to change the fps flag on the 120 fps Quicktime file to 30 fps so it can play in slomo in Quicktime? Cinema Tools (part of Final Cut Studio) was able to do this with the Conform feature, but I think it only recognizes 23.98, 24, 25, and 29.97 frame rates, not 120 fps.

    Let it do it. Go into Settings > Facebook then untick the contacts option. Job done.
