    I took a five minute movie with the standard movie app on the GS4. I think it is a big file. Somewhere I have the phone set to upload to Dropbox when the phone is connected via wifi.

    I am finding that this is really slowing down my home DSL connection. I learned this when I found that I couldn't browse at home and nothing was working right. I called tech support for my ISP and they examined the line and could see that the upload speed was maxing out, and we checked and found that when i turn OFF wifi on my the GS4 the upload speed speed goes down to normal.

    1) I want to make movies with the phone but is there a way to make less big files? A different file format?
    2) is there an app in Android that I can monitor my upload and download speeds?
    3) where can I examine the file size of the 5 minute movie that I made to learn how big it is?
    4) I have not signed up for the 50G of dropbox that is offered with GS4. I guess I better do that, but regardless, I ought to figure out an alternative. Can I just move the video file from the phone to my computer via the mini USB plug and not have the phone do the wifi upload for this file one file..... I do like having it do the wifi upload of pictures to google+ and to dropbox.
    5) what is the best way app to use to convert the large video file to something small that can be viewed at standard online video resolution.
