Yes. At the final ‘SHARE’ screen, select the ‘Camera Roll’ button. This will save your Flipdream as a looping video to your phone/device.
Sometimes, my posted flipdreams look low-res or play strangely in social media posts.
Unfortunately, social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc add ‘compression’ to video files which can cause them to look grainy at times. However, if you refresh your browser the video file will generally look normal again.
Our best advice is to save your flipdreams to your camera roll and post on to social media manually.
Where can I share the flipdreams I make?
Anywhere you want! By default, all flipdreams are created as MP4 video files.
MP4 Videos are widely accepted on all social networks, including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and even Snapchat.
Can I share a flipdream on Instagram or Snapchat?
Yes. When you create a flipdream you have the option on the ‘Post’ screen to ‘Save to Camera Roll’. This will save a video MP4 file to your phone’s camera roll, which can be shared virtually anywhere (Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc) as MP4 videos are universal files.
You also have the option to share to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram directly from the final post screen.
MP4s are also better quality and typically smaller file sizes than animated GIFs, so all around a win-win.
Can I share flipdreams with friends via text message or email?
Yes. If you choose the ‘Save to Camera Roll’ option when creating a flipdream you can save your creation to your phone’s camera roll. That way you can share it anywhere and with anyone.
