When recording, whether on a smartphone, laptop or handycam, check the video recording quality. A higher quality will give better visuals but will take longer time to upload on slower internet connections. To check and change the recording quality, consult your devices help files.
In general, 720HD (high definition) video recordings will be sufficient. However, don't drop the recording size below 480p.
When adjusting recording settings, test the new settings first by recording short, 5-minute video, uploading it and watching in Dreamaker.io.
