My friend took a video of me on his Iphone and it looked really good on his phone. When he sent it to my email though it came out all choppy. Any ideas what to do. I kind of really want it in good quality cause it's like impossible to see anything in it and I need some feedback on landing what's in the video.
If he e-mailed it the video probably got compressed or something. Get him to plug his iPhone into his computer and synch his photos/videos to iPhoto. Then copy and paste the video from iPhoto to his desktop or whatever. From there you can e-mail it from a normal client, throw it on a disk or a USB drive.
Uploading to YouTube directly from the phone works fine. Facebook compresses video though. Less noticeable for non 4S iPhones though. I had a 3GS and now a 4S. My 4S videos look worse when uploaded to FB from the phone.
Putting them onto a computer before any upload is always better.
