Android Facebook Video Upload Error Using Android API 4+

I have this code, after logging in to Facebook, I want to upload selected video to Facebook through Facebook Android SDK v4.13.1,

Problem:



The response looks OK to me, but the video is not showing in the Test User's Timeline.

Code:



public void shareVideoFB(String videoPath, final ProgressDialog pd) {
AccessToken accessToken = AccessToken.getCurrentAccessToken();
GraphRequest request = GraphRequest.newPostRequest(accessToken, "https://graph-video.facebook.com/me/videos", null, new GraphRequest.Callback() {
@Override
public void onCompleted(GraphResponse response) {
try {
if (pd.isShowing())
pd.dismiss();
} catch (Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
onFBShareVideoCompleted(response);
}
});
Bundle params = request.getParameters();
try {
byte[] data = readBytes(videoPath);
params.putByteArray("video.mp4", data);
String albumName = "testFBUpload";
params.putString("title", albumName);
params.putString("description", " #SomeTag");
request.setParameters(params);
request.executeAsync();
} catch (Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}


Response 1:



{Response: responseCode:200, graphObject:{"id":"10150481253673034", "url":"https:\/\/graph-video.facebook.com\/me\/videos"}, error:null}


Response 2:



{Response: responseCode:200, graphObject:null, error:{HTTPStatus:-1,errorCode:-1,errorType:null, errorMessage:"could not construct request body"}}


EDIT 1



I have created a new test user with several permissions like


  1. public_profile

  2. user_friends,

  3. email,

  4. user_about_me,

  5. user_actions.video,

  6. user_likes,

  7. user_videos,

  8. publish_pages,

  9. publish_actions



and upload the video but still getting the same response as Response 1.

Edit 2



I just noticed that for test users the response is same as Response 1 and with the exact Same ID 10150481253673034

Answer

Although @Morales Batovski Answer helped me but I want to answer my own Question as no answer was complete, I am posting a complete working solution:

Create Test User:

Create a new test user with permissions (You may exclude some of un-necessary permissions):

  1. public_profile
  2. user_friends
  3. email,
  4. user_about_me,
  5. user_actions.video,
  6. user_likes,
  7. user_videos,
  8. publish_pages,
  9. publish_actions

You will add these permissions here (Screenshot)
