Some Tips for Uploading GoPro Videos to YouTube

Some tips for uploading GoPro Videos to YouTube

How to Increase My Video Resolution?

Some GoPro users may find their videos are uploaded in low resolution. There is something you need to know about first. When you upload a YouTube video, it will initially be processed in low quality. This process helps you complete the upload process faster. When the upload flow is complete, your video will be available to stream in low quality, on a wide variety of devices. Higher qualities, such as 4K or 1080p, can take more time to process. While this processing happens, your video may seem to be missing higher qualities for several hours. Once high-resolution processing is finished, higher qualities will be available on your video.

If you don’t want to display the low-resolution video to your viewers when the high-resolution one is still processing. You can upload your video as unlisted first and make it public once high-resolution processing is complete. By uploading as unlisted first and publishing later, viewers will only ever see your video in high quality.

Some may wonder how much time high resolution needs to take. Processing time depends on many factors, like video format, video length, frame rate, and quality. For instance, 4K videos are 4 times larger than 1080p videos. It can take 4 times longer for 4K quality to be available after an upload finishes. A 4K video with a frame rate of 30 fps that is 60 minutes long can take up to 4 hours to finish high-resolution processing. A 4K video with a frame rate of 60fps will take longer.

Any Apps for Video Editing on Smartphones?

If you want to quickly share on social media or don't have too much skills on computer, here are a few helpful and useful apps:

1. Quik: Available on iOS & Android

Quik is a free photography and video editing app from GoPro. It's notable for providing a ton of features, comparable to a desktop photo or video editor, in a slick-looking and reasonably-fast app. It plays nice with other apps and works well whether it's photos, videos, or both you want to focus on. Powerful enough for anyone.

You can import photos and videos from your phone, GoPro, or any other camera, or transfer shots wirelessly to your phone for easy sharing.

2. Filmora: Available on iOS & Android

Filmora is an easy yet powerful video editor, that enables you to quickly and easily create video stories from your video clips, photos, and music. An easy-to-use video editing app with advanced features and tons of music, stickers, filters, effects, and transitions to be creative. You’ll save time and have a blast. It is not free, but it offers a free trial download which includes all of the same features as the paid version but there will be a big Filmora watermark in the exported video.

What Laptop Should I Choose for Video Editing?

The two most important laptop components for video editors are the CPU and memory. Most applications are optimized to take advantage of modern multi-core CPUs, which usually means that the more cores you have, the better. Multithreading, which enables each core to handle two processing threads simultaneously, is also important. 

Long-lasting battery life is also important if you don't want to lug a charger around alongside the laptop.The best laptops for video editing are powerful enough to tackle big edit jobs but also light enough to carry all day, with a screen vibrant and accurate enough to allow you to do your best work. 

The good news is that you now have more options than ever before, thanks to recent advances in CPU development. AMD, Intel and even Apple have met consumer demand for smaller, more powerful laptops with some beefy laptop CPUs (or SoCs, in the case of Apple's incredible M1 chip family).

If you're chiefly interested in doing recreational video editing and plan to stick to 1080p resolution, there are lots of thin and light laptops powerful enough to get the job done. Just make sure you're using the best video editing software for your needs.

However, if you plan to work in 4K and/or editing video files with high bitrates, you'll want a beefy laptop with a performant CPU, speedy hard drive, lots of RAM, and a discrete graphics card. The best gaming laptops often satisfy these requirements, though they tend to eat up battery when working at full capacity.

Any Places to Get Open/Non-licensed Music for Video Editing?

The background music for your video will be a vital part to attract your audience. Here are two websites that provide free music:
