4K Video Uploading for YouTuber

It’s not surprising that 5 billion users come to YouTube every day. Some of you would upload HD video to YouTube for sharing the music video, game video, vlog, tutorial, comedy sketch, or more.

Virtually, the way to upload HD video to YouTube is the same as posting the standard video. Just make certain the uploading videos are original and in 4k high definition. For Beginners, you need to register a new YouTube account firstly and it has evolved into one of the most popular social networking platforms of modern times which is increasingly being used to garner greater engagement and reach out to a wider segment of audience. The same thing can also be said about video marketing which is expected to lure in 80% of the global traffic by the end of 2019. But the main problem happens when we try to upload 4K video to YouTube and it succumbs to massive deterioration in quality.

Although 4K visuals are a lot more visually appealing than HD ones, it can also prove to be extremely demanding for your computer to tackle especially when it comes to editing. As a result, its post-production stage might seem pretty slow. Today we are going to address this burning issue of YouTuber around the globe who have been failing to retain the rich quality of 4K content shot through either a dedicated GoPro 4K action camera of 4K capable phone and uploaded over YouTube.

YouTube accepts a large scale of video formats. If your current format can’t be recognized by YouTube, you’d convert it to an appropriate one with a video converter tool.

Sometimes, the video size is problematic: the VideoProc team (video size calculator) noticed that a 1-minute 4K@60fps video requires 529MB of phone storage and this jumps to 643MB with ProTune turned on. With VideoProc, there are several strategies to increase the compatibility and/or reduce the file size of the 4K videos for use on mobile devices which include converting 4K videos converting 4K HEVC to H264 (supported by most devices) using the newer HEVC video converter to compress video by ~50% without noticeable loss, or tuning the resolution, bit-rate, frame-rate settings to reach the desired size with minimal loss.

Additionally, keep in mind that YouTube has size limitations that sometimes require compressing video from a 4K GoPro to a size that fit their maximum upload limits. Here are some key advantages of VideoProc:

  • GPU acceleration of video processing and compression
  • Support most-frequently used video edit operations, including cut, crop, subtitle, effect, rotate and merge
