Output file size

Post by PhilCC »

Hi. I created an mp4 combining an audio track with a single image file, size 1280 x 720. The file size is over 60k gb. Can this be reduced to under 25gb so that I can post it on Facebook and elsewhere? I don't wish to compromise the audio quality by reducing the resolution. Thanks, Phil.

>60GB for a single image file? How long in duration is the output file? How long the audio file? What are the properties of the audio file?

You have to supply some information!

I too was struck by the size which, for an mp4, sounds a bit improbable. But I am wondering whether the stated size of "60k gb" is a typo of some sort and is supposed to be, say, "60 kb"...?

An image file with audio is more likely to be 60000KB = 60MB. Facebook/Meta upload specs: https://www.facebook.com/formedia/blog/ ... l-episodes
