Hello,
Everytime I send a video from my camera roll to a friend in Snapchat it gets blurry, but the video is in good quality before I send it?



System Configuration: iPhone / Safari 13.0.3

Hello, this question has been solved elsewhere, here is that answer:

If you try to setup the default quality on Snapchat, you'll notice that there's no High Definition option.

Snapchat is using compression techniques when you upload your video in order to :
  • Save your time, because the most compressed the video is, the less time it takes to upload ;
  • Save their money, because the lowest the size is, the less bandwidh they consume.


Unfortunately, the compression is lossy, which means that the video will have a lower quality and thus looks crapier after compression

There are two workarounds :
  • Try to compress the video yourself by reducing its duration or by using a software to reduce its definition to something you find "acceptable".
  • Try to upload you video over a WiFi connection rather than a 3G/4G connection ;


Best regards,
