Some Things to Consider
- Videos get big. Fast. On your iPad Mini, plan on using about 80 MB of space for every minute of video. That maybe doesn't sound like a big deal, but that means your iPad Mini can only hold about 2 hours and 14 minutes of video even if it has nearly no applications on it.
- The bigger the video file, the harder it is to upload to another device. Rather than shooting a 10-minute video, try shooting two 5-minute videos. (Just be sure it satisfies your professor's requirements.)
- Videos can be made smaller through compression. There are lots of applications for the iPad that will compress video for you. (Compressing video is a technique that makes the movie's file smaller by lowering the resolution of making the picture physically smaller.) Video Compressor is a free app that let's you control the size of the file.
