First things first, the name and the slogan – “All your photos organized and easy to find” of Google Photos naturally generates common questions: “Can you upload videos to Google Photos?” and “Does Google Photos store videos?” The answer is a firm YES. But trouble exists during the Google Photos video upload process; upload slow, bad results, etc. In this article, I’ll introduce a practical tool that can solve these troubles at once. Hope it works on your issue.
Get this practical tool here now!

Google Photos is a cloud service developed by Google that is mainly aimed at photo sharing and storage. For supported files, the free and unlimited Google Photos video storage is so generous. The highest qualities of photos and videos you can store are up to 16 megapixels and up to 1080p resolution, for the digital memories (literally) stashed within mobiles of most people, that’s way good enough.

If I had to name an imperfection of that excellent free gift, I can say “the barely satisfactory video upload” only, which is sort of a significant drawback – Might not be all its fault, could be the result of your unfriendly file format or crude file status, actually, those two might be the root causes of most upload issues.

Solving these two can be trickier than it sounds. To keep your file data intact, I suggest you turn to HD Video Converter Factory Pro and follow the tutorials step by step.

How to Upload Videos to Google Photos without Issues

1. Unsupported File Format – Convert the Videos to Google Photos Video Format

Google Photos Video Storage Specs

Videos: .mpg, .mod, .mmv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts, and .mkv files.
Live photos can be backed up if you use the Google Photos app on your iPhone or iPad.

As you can see, some specific files (for example, .vob files) are not supported. Unfortunately, you are in possession of one and eager for a stable way to upload it as it's too important to lose? The one and only solid plan is to convert it to Google-Photos-friendly format. Here’s how.

How to Upload Videos to Google Photos without Incompatibility Problem

Before start, please free downloadfree download the software.

Step 1: Load the Original Files into the Program

Launch HD Video Converter Factory pro, select "Converter" on the main interface, import your media files into the program by clicking “Add Files” button.

Step 2: Convert the Files to Google Photos Video Format

Click the output format section and select the video format you want by clicking the corresponding icon at “Video” section from the category box above. Then click

“Run” button at main interface to start the conversion. I recommend you to convert videos to MP4 for small size, the best compatibility and acceptable quality. Next, we’ll downsize the files before exporting.

2. Google Photos Upload Videos Time-consuming? – Compress Video Files to Upload Smoothly

For free unlimited storage, Google Photos only supports “optimized” images, by “optimized” it means “compressed”. So, sometimes what takes up an enormous time when uploading is the processing & compression procedure of Google Photos. Let’s process the files in advance to shorten the upload, that’s good for your drive storage as well as other online storage service uploads, like solving Google Drive upload slow issue. As mentioned the above to continue, now I’ll show you how to downsize files from different aspects.

How to Upload Videos to Google Photos Faster

Step 3: Downsize Video Size by Customizing Parameters

Click the small “Parameter Settings” box at lower-right of main interface, you’ll be led to a new window.

Choose “H265” as the new encoder and adjust frame rate to 24~30fps and appropriately reduce bit rate (base on the original bitrate of your video). While you are at it, as you can see, you can also downscale video resolution, if you can stand the apparent quality loss. Then click the “OK” button to confirm the settings and proceed. At last, click “Run” button to start the conversion & compression.

Other Possible Causes of Upload Problems:

3. Poor Network Connection

Check the connection and refresh the router > Restart browser > Refresh the website page

Besides, make sure you haven’t set any upload rate-limit for Google Photos. Your network transfer capability doesn’t quite match your file amount? Adopting an alternative file transfer protocol may help.

4. Overloaded Cache and Cookies

Same possible reason as Google Drive Videos Not Playing Issue, overloaded Cache and Cookies retard your browser. They are usually dispensable to the most, so clear them every now and then is a good habit. For Chrome, click top-right three-dots icon > More tools > Clear browsing data > Clear data

5. Browser Extensions Bug

Disable extensions/plugins/add-ons that you are not using temporarily. For chrome, click top-right three-dots icon > More tools > Extensions > slide the bar

6. Video is Not Ready to be Uploaded Yet

For the best Google Photos Video Quality, Google Photos video limit can reach up to 10GB, for the video files in that situation, it might take long for Google Photos to process it. Nothing else to do but be patient...

At last...

The method above applies to desktop uploads. If you wonder how to upload video files from your mobile, like “how to upload to Google Photos from iPhone”, you can either transfer files to PC with USB or use an online drive service as the transmission medium. Note that the supported video format specifications of different online drive services vary from one another (Even google Photos video spec is different from Google Drive video format). I hope you can convert/compress videos flexibly when it comes to upload issues from now on.

Thank you for your reading.
