Why the video quality of the gopro app stories look great on my phone but on instagram looks so bad

If it was supposed to be mainly for Instagram stories the gopro app should have an specific export setting that will make the videos look the highest quality possible on IG stories

@rockystar72030 

Are you on iPhone or Android?

- On iPhone > the export resolution taken into account is the one you have the most media in > if you have a majority of 1080p/60 files then output will be 1080p/60...

- On Android > the export resolution is 1080p / 60 fps

 

Also know that two updates will come in the following days 6.2.1 and 6.2.2 bringing lots of bugs fixes. Team is working hard to improve the app step by step :)

Fingers crossed the resolution for Quik Stories in the GoPro App for Android will be improved.  Love the HERO8 and Love the functionality of the GoPro app, but the render quality doesn't do the camera or app any justice.  I just got my HERO8 and tested it out with a little surfing.  On the ten minute drive home all of the media transfered to the app (very cool) and the Quik Story created (super awesome).  I took a few minutes to make some adjustments and then saved/rendered the video to share.  YouTube also does some compression to the video, but the end result looks nothing like the high quality videos I got straight out of the camera.  Still great, but needs some improvement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrs6crrxa4A
