    I'm taking videos with my d3a and when I upload them to youtube I'm only getting 780p. Why is it not downloading the full 1080 or higher ? When I watch the video it only goes to 780

    If you have Mac Pro, you won't have any problem, use iMovie.

    If you're uploading the video from the phone its recorded in 720. You have to grab the video from the microsd card to get your true resolution.

    It all depends on what "BIT" rate you actually save the video file that you upload to youtube - see ManandDrone for tips....

    For a 4 minute video it should be around 160 mb, I made the mistake converting to 40 mb, big difference

    4K needs good processing on your laptop plus fast internet.

    I have no problems as I have new Mac Pro and get 120 MBPS Internet at home

    I use Premier Elements to edit/create video to upload. Here are the settings I use to export edited video to view on computers or upload.

    After editing the video I shot with my P3P, here's a link to the uploaded video. Don't pay attention to how much movement you see in the video. Winds were far too high to normally fly [gusting to 28 mph] but we needed to do a quick shakedown of my buddies P3P and have a place it's safe to fly - even in high winds.

    Last note - it's amazing how stable the P3P is in wind.

    Fast Internet, haha :) Not all of us need or can get fast internet. It used to take 3+ days to upload on dial-up :) Now on the only 1.5mbps line available, it still takes up to 16 hours on a large movie but I didn't have any problem waiting for days back when there wasn't a choice out here, lol. I start it at night when I go to bed and usually it's done around noon on a 2gig movie. 6 to 14 hours uploading one movie here usually. Power Director 12 has paid for itself 100 times over from my YouTube income.

    I never bothered to check how long does it take to upload as it could be 15-20 minutes max for 10 mins video on 4K

    Needs are changing and infrastructure is getting ready across globe to accept challenges.

    Well, not quite multi-GB. 4:33 = 490,011KB.

    ESFlight.jpg

    The full video straight off the SD card is 3.7 GB & 8:37 long.
    The edited and exported file is roughly half that.

    This is the file upload to YouTube in the link above.
