Forum Question: publishing videos on facebook via imovie ’11

I am having trouble publishing a video via imovie ’11. I want to publish it to facebook so I clicked shared => facebook which brought up a box requiring me to enter my facebook info. I did so by copy and pasting straight from keychain. When I click publish it brings up an error message that states that my ‘account username or password is incorrect’. I don’t understand. I took the same info I copy and pasted from keychain and to manually log into facebook. It worked fine. I only have one facebook account in my keychain which works to automatically fill in my information when I go to facebook and successfully logs me in. I don’t know why I am having difficulties publishing a video via imovie’11. I didn’t know if you had any suggestions or if you heard of a flaw of imovie’11? I published the movie manually which is a bit a little more of a hassle but oh well. It would be nice though to publish at the click of a button as advertised by Apple. THank you. I hope you can help.

    It is just a matter of making sure both your ID and password are exact. Maybe try typing them in rather than copy and paste. Your password may match, but maybe you are using a slightly different ID?
    Anyway — you can just work around the whole issue by avoiding the built-in iMovie function. Just export from iMovie as a video and then use the Facebook web interface to upload normally.

    I encounter exactly the same problem. Login and password is correct, but I got an error message ‘account username or password is incorrect’.

    It turns out that the program cannot support unique characters in the password such as ! or @. It can only do numbers and letters. Change your password to just numbers and letters, and it should work.

    It appears that this is one of the bugs fixed in today’s update to iMovie 9.0.1 — FYI.
