    9to5mac has reported something buried inside of the code in iOS 4 GM. Currently we have the option to export to YouTube or Mobile Me and it looks like soon we will have direct exporting to facebook when iOS 4 hits us very soon.

    So how exactly did they find this little bit of information if there are no buttons for it? Well buried inside on of the .plist files on an iPhone running iOS 4 GM, 9to5Mac found the following snippet of code.

    While some speculate that this feature may be iPhone 4 only, I highly doubt that is the case as this wouldn't be software dependent. The only difference I can think of is that the iPhone 4 will allow you to upload HD videos; but even if that was the case, hello bandwidth.

    Either way we will find out shortly what exactly this piece of code is for.

    ur right I just checked it and couldnt play the videos I thought they were supposed to get that changed over a while ago. I thought i remember seeing a story about an update that would have allowed fb videos to be played over the iPhone

    ^My FB app doesn't play videos and it's the latest one.

    This should be in the 3GS iOS4 as well as Apple said only iPhone 3G won't get all the new features...

    Does anyone actually use facebook for videos anymore? I thought it all started with facebook and quickly moved on to youtube.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
