    I shot a video and uploaded it to youtube. It uploaded with 320P and 240P, but not 720P. I looked in the settings of the iPhone and didn't see a settings option to make the video a specific quality. What does anyone know about this?

    Thanks

    You need to connect the iPhone to your computer and download it via USB.

    Okay, and then what? Use image capture to iMovie, or what? How does that convert to 720P?

    You video was shot in 720p, it just won't upload to youtube in 720p. If you connect your phone to your computer and copy the movie over, you'll see that it's 720p. From there, you can upload it to youtube on your computer and it'll upload in 720p. Unfortunately, this is the only way to do it (right now).

    Because in real life, I would have made the quote signs with my fingers by my ears, when I said pretend and if you would have said you didn;t need to pretend, I would have kicked you in the scrotum.


    Did all this and it still is coming out choppy and grainy and definitely not HD quality.

    if you get the imovie mobile app, you will be able to upload 720p directly from iphone

    I had heard that the imovie app allowed for this after some commenting on how without the app you upload in much lower quality. I assume this is not true?
