Good to Know
Facebook compresses videos to optimize it for play on mobile devices. So you may notice some reduced quality of your Ripl posts on Facebook.
Should you wish to modify your Ripl creation after it has been posted to social media sites you will need to edit the Ripl file on your device. Delete the online posts then upload the edited Ripl file.
