How to Upload video to server from iPhone?

-(IBAction)uploadToServer :(id)sender
{
NSString *str1=[[[NSBundle mainBundle] resourcePath] stringByAppendingPathComponent:@"intro.mp4"];
NSLog(@"str1=%@",str1);

NSString *escapedUrlString = [str1 stringByAddingPercentEscapesUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
NSLog(@"escapedUrlString=%@",escapedUrlString);

NSURL *videoURL = [NSURL URLWithString:escapedUrlString];
NSLog(@"videoURL=%@",videoURL);

NSData *newdata = [NSData dataWithContentsOfFile:escapedUrlString];
webdata=[NSData dataWithData:newdata];
NSLog(@"webData = %@",webdata);
[self post:webdata];
}

- (void)post:(NSData *)fileData
{

NSData *videoData = fileData;
NSString *urlString = @"http://rompio.com/web_service/web.php?method=upload_video&user_id=4";

NSMutableURLRequest *request = [[NSMutableURLRequest alloc] init];
[request setURL:[NSURL URLWithString:urlString]];
[request setHTTPMethod:@"POST"];

NSString *boundary = @"---------------------------14737809831466499882746641449";
NSString *contentType = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"multipart/form-data; boundary=%@", boundary];
[request addValue:contentType forHTTPHeaderField:@"Content-Type"];

NSMutableData *body = [NSMutableData data];
[body appendData:[[NSString stringWithFormat:@"\r\n--%@\r\n", boundary] dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];
[body appendData:[@"Content-Disposition: form-data; name=\"userfile\"; filename=\".mp4\"\r\n" dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];
[body appendData:[@"Content-Type: application/octet-stream\r\n\r\n" dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];
[body appendData:[NSData dataWithData:videoData]];
[body appendData:[[NSString stringWithFormat:@"\r\n--%@--\r\n", boundary] dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];
[request setHTTPBody:body];

NSData *returnData = [NSURLConnection sendSynchronousRequest:request returningResponse:nil error:nil];
NSString *returnString = [[NSString alloc] initWithData:returnData encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];

NSLog(@"returnString=== %@", returnString);
}

Answer

It's easy to do with the AFNetworking library and you can also use it to track the progress of the video upload. You can download AFNetworking library from here.

And for configuring AFnetworking please refer this Link.

And this code will used to send the video on server

 NSString *videoURL = [[NSBundle mainBundle] pathForResource:@"myVideo" ofType:@"mov"];
NSData *videoData = [NSData dataWithContentsOfURL:[NSURL fileURLWithPath: videoURL]];

AFHTTPClient *httpClient = [AFHTTPClient clientWithBaseURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"http://www.example.com"]];

NSMutableURLRequest *request = [httpClient multipartFormRequestWithMethod:@"POST" path:@"/videoupload.php" parameters:nil constructingBodyWithBlock:^(id <AFMultipartFormData>formData)
{
    [formData appendPartWithFileData:videoData name:@"file" fileName:@"myVideo.mov" mimeType:@"video/quicktime"];
}];



AFHTTPRequestOperation *operation = [[AFHTTPRequestOperation alloc] initWithRequest: request];

[operation setUploadProgressBlock:^(NSInteger bytesWritten,long long totalBytesWritten,long long totalBytesExpectedToWrite)
 {

     NSLog(@"Sent %lld of %lld bytes", totalBytesWritten, totalBytesExpectedToWrite);

 }];

[operation  setCompletionBlockWithSuccess:^(AFHTTPRequestOperation *operation, id responseObject) {NSLog(@"Video Uploaded Successfully");}
                                  failure:^(AFHTTPRequestOperation *operation, NSError *error) {NSLog(@"Error : %@",  operation.responseString);}];


[operation start];
