The iPhone 6 undoubtably has a great camera, especially for video. However, when I upload my videos to social media it looks horrible. Very blurry and pixilated. Is anyone else having the same issue? Is it the phone, the Facebook app, or the update? I noticed it with iOS 8, but the iOS 8.0.2 made no difference in quality of video uploads.

At the iPhone hacks section.
I'm pretty sure Facebook or other social media sites control the quality and size of the videos posted on their server for obvious reasons.
They don't want their users to have to download or buffer 600-700mb for everyone to be able to see your ice bucket challenge in high definition.

Yea. I'd assume it's the platform. I'm hoping a Facebook update will help. It's frustrating to shot HD and not have the satisfaction of sharing it. The only other option I can think of is to upload to YouTube first or actually import into Premiere Pro, render, and export. Which seems ridiculous for a 45 second video of interior decorating...
