Hey fellow Byters! I’ve been dormant on Byte lately and it’s unfortunately for the wrong reason…I’m shooting my videos in 4k 30 fps and 1080p 60fps. I use an editing software that degrades the footage to 720p (The resolution for Byte video as I understand). The videos are pretty good quality, I import them into Byte, play them to make sure its the correct one and the footage looks proper, then I go to the final screen to select the tags I want to use and the caption I want to set and the quality degrades so heavily I literally cannot use any of the content…Like I’ve tried a lot of fixes and nothing is working. Hate to mention this, but this does not happen on any other apps. This is very discouraging for me since Byte is very fun and I anticipated posting almost daily before I discovered this issue. I really don’t want to spend a ton of money just to buy a camera of LOWER quality/resolution than the one in my phone just because Byte isn’t accepting Android videos. Is anyone else having this issue? Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do? Like I said, I am pretty discouraged from even participating at this point since the videos look crystal clear before Imported into byte and once I go to set the caption, the quality looks like it was filmed on a toaster from 1980. Any ideas?
TLDR: Byte is compressing android videos so heavily for me that the content is not usable
