    Hi guys!
    Yesterday I was able to export/upload my videos (with no reduction in size) to facebook and email recipients from my iPad Air. I was using both iMovie and my email application. They both worked yesterday, but now today if I try to export either way, it ends up being sent greatly reduced in both size and quality.
    I have not adjusted my settings in any way.
    Can anyone suggest what might be going on here?
    Many thanks!

    Assuming the export settings didn't change themselves, no idea.

    Have you been exporting the movie from iMovie every time you send it, or did you export it once to the camera roll, and then export/send the movie from there?

    Hey, thanks for the reply. Nope, haven't changed anything (that I am aware of). And no, I export from both iMovie and via the email application equally. For instance, I uploaded a video from iMovie to my Facebook page (full HD) successfully yesterday (about 8 MB). Today I uploaded a similar one the same way only to find it's about 500 KB and much smaller.
    I even saved my iMovie video to my Camera Roll........and no matter what resolution I select, it comes out at the lowest res.
    I try attaching a hi-res video to my emails.....but again......turns into a low-res by the time it reaches it's recipient. Weird :(

    Hi! Welcome to iPF!

    Is the video with which you are having a problem, of a higher resolution than the previous video? Afaik, iMovie drops the resolution to 960x540 for quick action of the app.
