    Hi people

    I've been recording some video blogs recently, and slowly realised you tube was.predicitng.long long long load up times

    When I compared the size of my recent video's to my older attempts

    I found that whereas a video of 30 odd minutes used to come in at about 698 MB
    NOW a video of similar length is 2.66 GB!

    Please help me with two things-

    1- where in my settings have I set my camera to record such massive files? (and how?)

    2- is there any way i can convert these files back down into something smaller?
    thank you

    .

    You must have changed your default video resolution to the max (1080P) available. Go to video settings and try a lower resolution.

    I just thought- i normally copy my vids (MP-4) to my PC hardrive and used to delete the original

    Thinking I was saving time I CUT and pasted these Vids - which i don't normally do

    Thinking that somehow this might be the problem I tried to re-instate one of GIANT vids on my phone,
    making sure there was enough room-
    and the PC asked me if iwanted to convert the file into somehting that would play on my phone


    So SOMEHOW - I've managed to Scoop up a video file that i either recorded in some other MASSIVE format-
    and drop it onto my PC

    Or somehow - the Nature of my video file has been alterred in the journey from phone to
    my PC

    any thoughts gratefully recieved
