Stored video size much larger than the original uploaded video

    Hi,

    We did a test and uploaded a video as a user. (size = 13,231,587)

    we then checked the uploaded stored video size on the server (size=58,533,814)

     

    The stored video is way larger in size than the original video.

     

    #1 Why is this?

    #2 Is there any way to reduce or retain the original video size on the server

    The goal is to save space on video uploads/sizes.

     

    Thanks

    Ouch can't see your image. The text is way too small and enlarging causes pixelation. I will try a test on local.

    Please get with socialengineaddons and let them know I tested the default and it stores the file in a compressed format or at least it's smaller than original. Perhaps they can fix the issue.
