Emailing and posting gopro video
I took some video this past weekend with my gopro. It saves the video as MP4. I have 2 questions

1) is there a way to shrink the files to email them. My email only lets me maklmupnto 25 MB so the files are way to large

2) is there a way to make the video save o a different format other than mp4 so I can upload to YouTube without having to convert it to .mov or something YouTube accepts?

If you want it anything other than mp4 you're gonna have to convert it....

check out mpeg streamclip. free convertor that is actually worth a lot

google has drive which is super easy to use.. just attach like you would an email and then it will say its too large and put in on drive for you then when you send it, it will ask you to allow the people you email it to access and just click accept and it will work just like email.

Side Note: Roshen Perera is just advertising for some crappy thing you have to pay for dont listen to him.

I upload all of my stuff as an mp4 to youtube. No conversion needed. I second using mpeg streamclip, I've used it for a few years now, super easy and best of all, free!

You can shrink the size of your MP4 files by using AppGeeker video converter, it has options to manually set the file size to fit your need.

However, please keep in mind that the smaller the file, the greater the loss of quality. I dont know what is size of your original mp4 files, you may consider split the file into some small parts to email (AppGeeker also handle that stuff).

As for uploading MP4 files into YouTube, you can directly do that on your computer with interrupt. But it would be better to convert them to a .flv file extension (the mostly used format for distributing videos online) that YouTube accepts well.

See: How to Convert FLV to MP4 (or MP4 to FLV ) for Mac/ Windows

Hope it is useful.

I am late but focuses on sharing.
1. Reduce Video Resolution
Usually, users use the GoPro to shoot video with 4K resolution, and the output of 1080P is enough to cope with the demand. In the Settings window, you are allowed to change video resolution. Take the resolution of 1920x1080 as the output resolution, and then start the GoPro 4K to 1080P conversion.

2. Lower Video Bit Rate
As we know, the Bit Rate of video not only determines the quality of the video, but also the file volume is proportional to the Bit Rate, so we can lower the Bit Rate to compress GoPro videos. Open the Settings window and customize the Bit Rate.

3. Adjust Frame Rate
If you shoot video with a Frame Rate of 60 fps or higher, you can adjust it to 30 fps in the Settings window.

4. Adjust Compression Setting Bar
Check the Compression Setting bar at the bottom. Drag the slider to adjust Compression Ratio to achieve the purpose of compressing GoPro videos.
