Yesterday bought the JVC Everio GZ -MG155.
Software is Pinnacle 11
Very pleased with it. But when I see the files I have created, and especially when I try to upload them to youtube, I have an issue:
I have to keep the clips down to around 1 minute, since anything longer than this goes over 100M. Is this correct? Why cant i make record a 3 or 4 minute long clip without it being hundred of MG long?
I tried to change the shooting mode to "economy" but still the size of the resulting file is too too big.
Should I pay more attention to the software the cam was bundled with? Is this a "conversion" (the files are in MOD.) or maybe a "compression" thing??
Any ideas? The only reason i bought the camera was to capture vids of my newly born daughter ( a week old yesterday) and send them to the internet for my parents to see back home.
ANy ideas much appreciated thank you.
