We had a client text me a video that they wanted to use on their social media page. Someone had sent it to them as well. I loved the content of the video, but you could barely make out who was in the video, where they were and what they were doing. I hate to say it, but it was TERRIBLE quality. All of the other posts on their accounts are pretty good. Most we took with our professional cameras, but sometimes we would use one from a customer (shot on their phone). For photos, they are fine. Can we see the difference? Yes. Can most people? No. But for super compressed video? EVERYONE can tell the difference.
Super compressed video can be prevented. Here's how. Make DropBox your friend. Don't email or text a video back and forth, it will just reduce the quality. Put it in a (free) DropBox folder and share with the person. That's it. It's that easy!
