Quick Video Test: Converting Samsung #NX1 to Compatible YouTube Format

I shot this video as 1920x1080 at 30 fps and then dropped the mp4 file into the Samsung Movie Converter software. Then, after the conversion finished, I trimmed the video with Quicktime Player.

I also used the Samsung Camera Manager App on the iPhone using a WiFi connection to the NX1, that allowed me to see what the camera was seeing, and control recording. That is a very cool feature. It's always been a problem seeing what the camera is recording if it didn't have a flip out lens.

Samsung Camera Manager App:
'Samsung Camera Manager' is an app that works in conjunction with the latest wireless sharing features found in the newest Samsung Smart Camera including NX1.
You can connect your camera and iOS device then share images easily with the Samsung Camera Manager.

[Main features]
1. MobileLink
- Copy photos from the Smart Camera to the iOS device
2. Remote Viewfinder (Pro)
- See the live view of the Smart Camera on your iOS device
- Remotely control & operate the Smart Camera from your iOS device

[Compatible models]
- NX1 and special Samsung Smart cameras launched after September 2014.

[System requirement]
- iOS 6.1 or later

This camera encodes video files using H.265 which requires a conversion prior to editing or uploading. I've been experimenting with different video recording modes and am getting mixed results.
