Reducing 1080p video record file size ?


Aug 23, 2012
Hi all,

I have had my Note 2 for less than 24 hrs, very happy with it. I would however like to know what kind of compression is possible with 1080p vidoes as the file sizes are huge !

I appreciate 1080p IS a lot of information but the N2 records at approx 2MB per second at 1080...thats a GB for only 500 seconds or 8.5 minutes of footage.

What kind of compression is possible once the video is on my PC to get that file size down without compromising any quality ?...is the native video lossless ? I cant imagine people have uploaded 1080p Note2 videos too Youtube at those huge filesizes. Thanks..:D
