Hi all; I've just managed to record an Endless Marathon on Tetris Party Deluxe via Elgato, but having taken a look, the max file size to upload is 5GB, and my vid file is 13GB. What would be the alternative to uploading if my video file is too big?

    Download and use either "Handbrake" or "Free video compressor". Compress the video down to about 4.5GB. Quality doesn't typically begin suffering badly until you compress it down below 10% of the original video file. i.e 15GB file down to 1.5GB will probably yield unusable results.

    I use Video Compress on my phone and it’s great. Pic below. Not sure where your video is but I would highly recommend it on a cell phone to reduce the size. I typically take my videos down to 50 or 40%, but could go lower. Check it out!

    On the PC, I'd definitely go with Handbrake, as Garrett mentioned above. I use it for huge movie files. It can take a 25gig file and knock it down to 5 gigs without any loss of quality that I can see. It's really amazing.

    I use Avidemux to split the file into <5GB chunks & then upload each chunk.

    The max video that Twin Galaxies can upload is 4.8 but like Garrett Holland 4.5 giga bytes is best.

    Computer file sizes are always ambiguous as even different applications on the same machine will report different "human friendly" file sizes. It's possible to upload 5 GibiBytes which is more than 5 GigaBytes. Regardless, try to make sure your file size is a little less than your system application's idea of "5GB" - whatever that is.
