But then I noticed my videos looked whiter than usual when reproducing them! Thankfully Camila Eugenia an employee...

    iPhone 14(+) iPhone 14 Plus only recording in h264

    As the title says, no matter what I change in the settings everything my iPhone 14 Plus records is in h264. Needless to say I'd prefer to record in h265 for file size reasons. I'm not using my device professionally or anything. Is this maybe a bug? Also I haven't tried any 3rd party app yet...

    Software for sorting videos by dimension

    I have a folder containing video clips and need to sort them by their dimensions (smallest to biggest for example). Mac Finder doesn't have the option to do this. Does anyone know of some software or maybe even an extension for Finder that will allow me to do this?

    This is a strange bug that popped up after updating to 13.0.1 - videos (whether played in QT or in Safari (like YouTube)) all rotate 90 deg clockwise and clip outside of the player!
