How Using the Quik app upload to Facebook for best quality resolution ?

[ Edited ]

Question: i know Facebook won’t upload anything above 1080, the Quik app has a option in settings to save videos as “1080”, i always shoot in 2k, should i click On the setting to save videos as 1080 OR should i save my 2k video as 2k when uploading to Facebook? i noticed on fb the resolution doesn’t seem nearly as great when uploading, so question is.. what should i do To get the best quality smoothness when uploading to fb.. only shoot on 1080 and stop shooting in 2k or...? I only Have access to GoPro mobile apps, i dont own a computer/laptop. Thanks for help would be appreciated

Hi @supersurf46116,

 

Try to change your default upload settings.

On facebook settings there should be default upload settings and change it to Max or HD.

Re: How Using the Quik app upload to Facebook for best quality resolution ?

Thanks for the response jay. I’ve always had my HD fb function kept on. But yet it still looks distorted. It’s not a GoPro problem but i think fb only allows a 1080 max output even after compressing a 2k 60fps video? Sucks cause i love My go pro 7 at 4k 60fps hypersmooth.. freakin badass footage but on fb it looks like crap.. not sure there is even a fix, i think the only way to get a super hd quality out of a 2or4k is to upload to YouTube first then post it to fb.. i guess

Yup @supersurf46116,

 

That would be the best option.
