Roller Skating and Ms. Pac-Man shot 4k on an iPhone 6s Plus
This was shot in low light and hand held. The 4k footage was pretty noisy and the video wasn’t as bright as I would like, so I post processed it in Final Cut Pro X and then downscaled it to 720p. 720p is Facebook’s maximum quality anyway and I find that it hides a lot of the noise that was in the original video. Unfortunately, there’s not an easy way to embed the video in WordPress.
Option #2 for video hosting is the de facto standard YouTube. For YouTube, I uploaded 4k and let it do it’s thing. Here’s the same video hosted by YouTube.
To me, the answer is clear. Going forward, I’ll be using YouTube for video embeds and video sharing.
