Changes Bitrate and File size after sync.

Schermafdruk 2017-09-30 12.22.50.jpgSchermafdruk 2017-09-30 12.26.07.jpg

I hope someone is able to tell me what is going on here....

 

I have made a 4k 60PFS recording on my iphone 8 plus.

The file properties of this mov file is around 42 MB an the Bitrate is around 39000 KBPS..(see photo)

 

When this file is uploaded to Google Drive the file properties stays the same...(as expected)

However !!!

 

When I upload this file to dropbox the filesize became around 64 MB and the Bitrate has changed to 57000 (see photo)

 

The uploaded file is terrible to watch .... stuttering and stuttering etc....

 

Why is this changed after the upload to Dropbox ?
I would expect no modifications.

Have tested this a couple of times with the same outcome everytime.

 

Anyone ??

Wow... you are 100% correct.
Seems the Original file is not playing very well on my computer. (high specs...;latest I7 and one of the fastest GeForce Card and still choppy)

Thank you very much for helping me out.
Now I know exactly what is going on.

Thanks !!

From Iphone using the Google Drive and Dropbox app.

 

Uploading from Iphone 8 plus to Google drive = correct

Uploading from IPhone 8 plus to Dropbox = not correct.

You've not answered the question..... we cannot attempt to help if you wont. Dropbox doesnt change the files in anyway so something else is happening.

How are you redownloading them?

The website at www.dropbox.com/home and shared link etc.

Re: Changes Bitrate and File size after sync.

I am redownloading bij the dropbox application on windows 10 and the sync tool on the Synology Nas server...
Both show the wrong Filesize and bitrate..

 

Also when I check the filesize in the dropbox webbrowser (so how it is on the the dropbox server) it also the wrong filesize...

It seems the change is done by the upload procedure.

Re: Changes Bitrate and File size after sync.

Are you using the Dropbox official apps to upload?

You using Camera Upload to add the file to Dropbox?

If so can you try adding it manually via the + symbol.

Re: Changes Bitrate and File size after sync.

iOS 11?
Which version of Dropbox?

I know there are some issues with uploading in iOS11 so it maybe worth logging a ticket at www.dropbox.com/support which you can then track at http://dropbox.zendesk.com

You need to log a ticket with support I'm afraid then.
