Hero 7 - Best social media video settings

I am looking for recommendations on the best settings for posting video to social media using my Hero 7 Black. The footage I have been getting is really great but it is too high a resolution and frame rate for Instagram, Facebook, etc. Once loaded to them they automatically degrade the footage and I am sorely dissapointed with the outcome. Are there any best setting to use that will result in the best possible videos for social media use?

Re: Hero 7 - Best social media video settings

What settings are you using?

 

There was a post a few years ago about uploading to facebook and the recommended settings were 720p at 30fps or less. Not sure if that's still the case but try 1080 at 30 or even 25 fps and see how the quality is. If it's still not to your likeing try 720.

 

How are you uploading the videos? mobile/cell phone or by computer?

Re: Hero 7 - Best social media video settings

Hello,

I'm pretty new at this but am having success posting my daughter's softball games to Facebook Live.

I'm using 720 because that's the max it allows, 60fps, and a Linear setting instead of Wide. I'm also set at the 2.7k resolution and 16:9 AR.image.jpg
