Hi, I am videographer. I visit Smugmug and open trial account. I tested platform and I have many question about video upload. My English is not so good I'm sorry.

Firstly i cheched help center. Smugmug recomended video format H.264 and support many container. Smugmug says "we recommend that's free" for "MPEG StreamClip". I cheched and download.

I used recomended setting and convert example video (5D Mark4 FHD HQ). I have H.264 Codec and .Mov container video.


First Question:

Source: Bitrate: 179,7Mbps, 1080p, Codec: avc1, Frame Rate:50 FPS, Progressive, YUV420, Video Duration: 1'13"; File:1,52Gb
Convert Setting(All Software): Data Rate: 7000Kbps, Scale: 1080p, Sound: AAC 128Kbps, Codec:H.264, Quality: %50)

Exported video sizes vs Smugmug uploaded video sizes:

MediaCoder (avc1): Export Size: 61 Mb - Smugmug Size: 40,3 Mb
MediaEncoder (AVC Coding): Export Size: 62,7 Mb - Smugmug Size: 40,6 Mb
StraxRip (avc1): Export Size: 64,9 Mb - Smugmug Size: 47,6 Mb
MPEG StreamClip (h.264): Export Size: 63,60 Mb - Smugmug Size: 43,7 Mb
AND OMG:
Original Video(avc1): 1.52Gb - Smugmug Size: 38,3 Mb - HOW CAN BE? -

Second Question:
I have another video and 720p low quality:

Source: Bitrate: 3 Mbps, 720p, Codec: avc1, Frame Rate:24 FPS, Progressive, YUV420, Video Duration: 3'07"; File: 68 Mb
Smugmug uploaded video sizes: 68 Mb and no convert! How?

Third Question:
I have another video and 720p low quality:
Source: Bitrate: 4 Mbps, 1080p, Codec: avc1, Frame Rate:50 FPS, Progressive, YUV420, Video Duration: 1'13"; File: 29,8 Mb
Smugmug uploaded video sizes: 36,5 Mb! How? :smiley: I test 3 times and 2 different videos and same result!?



Sorry, I dont understand this system. Can you tell me? how can possible? I need help, how can upload video for best quality?
