Understanding Video & Photo Processing

It is extremely important to understand that videos will not be over-processed: meaning that if you upload a video with a frame size of 640x360, the best quality video you will receive is 360p. Similarly, photos are only processed up to their best possible quality. If you upload a file that is 1024x768, you will not have a large photo encoded, as that maintains a minimum resolution of 1080 pixels. It is important to note - however - that no matter what size video you upload - you will receive, at minimum, a 270p and 360p video in response.
