    Hey guys,

    Did a little search and read some threads about bad upload quality for the new IP4, but mostly what i read was that it was usually due to 3G. So i used WiFi and it still seems like my video has REALLY ****** quality. Like not even 360p quality. Anybody know the problem? I tried to search but didn't see a setting for upload resolution on the phone.

    Here's a test video:


    Edit: Nvm, seems like it has gotten a little better, but another video i uploaded on Facebook still has ****** quality. Now the question is, why is it not allowing me to select 720p on YouTube?

    You can't upload 720p video directly from your phone without iMovie.

    Ah, really? Well damn. Guess i'm gonna have to get the app. What good is this feature if you can't use it straight out of the phone :/.

    Thanks for the quick reply! :D

    Also, YouTube takes awhile to process the video. The time needed depends on the length and quality of the source video. If you go back freqently, you will see it increase the quality options until eventually it finishes 720p.

    You could get the raw video file out from Image Capture and just upload that to youtube.

    +1. I hate using iPhoto and iMovie to upload simple pictures or videos. Imagecapture is the best.

    ^^^ I'm guessing this is on the computer correct?

    Also, is there a tutorial for the iMovie for the iPhone? I can't seem to figure out how to save a video once selected and edited.

    Download pixelpipe from the AppStore, it's free. You can upload 720p directly from the phone. It allows you to upload to facebook, YouTube, dailymotion, and many others.

    Here is the test video I did using pixelpipe to upload from phone. Quality is excellent.
