Need app to keep same quality

Was nite fishing and somehow captured a python constricting a 5 foot iguana underwater then an alligator attacks and takes it from the python. Whenever i open or upload it to several programs its not half as clear. Been trying for almost a week now and can't keep the same quality of it from the original footage.

Re: Need app to keep same quality

Hello @blueoasis20775. If you are using Quik for desktop for your edits, the highest resolution that you can have your video output in is 1080p. 

 

As users have experienced, uploading videos directly from the media library on a desktop computer gives higher quality. To do this, save the video to your computer. Once there, upload your video to Facebook or YouTube from your desktop computer for better quality.

 

You may also explore other programs that can be used to view and edit your GoPro footage. Hope this helps.
