Method 2. Uploading Videos on YouTube

You can also share your GoPro videos by uploading them to YouTube and then sharing the YouTube video’s link with your friends. This is the best method for people who don’t want to use GoPro Quik because this method involves uploading the video to your computer first.

Step 1: Remove the microSD card from your GoPro camera and use a microSD adapter to connect the memory card to your computer.

Step 2: Open the microSD card’s storage folder and transfer the videos you want to share to your computer.

Step 3: Go to YouTube and upload the video you want to share. You can choose whether you want the video to be listed as public or private. Keep in mind that it may take some time to upload and process longer GoPro videos shot in high-resolution video quality. 

Step 4: Once the video is uploaded to YouTube, copy the video’s URL.

Step 5: Send your YouTube video’s link to everybody you want to share it with.

Method 3. Uploading Videos to Email, Google Drive, or Dropbox

Another way to share your GoPro videos is through email or with a digital storage platform like Google Drive or Dropbox. You can use this method on your phone or computer. However, you’ll need to use GoPro Quik to save the video to your phone if you want to use your mobile device.

Step 1: Upload your videos to your computer or save your videos to your phone’s video gallery through GoPro Quik.

Step 2: Attach the video to an email or upload it to Google Drive or Dropbox.

Step 3: Send the video to the people you’d like to share it with.

How to Send GoPro Videos Without Losing Quality?

If you upload your GoPro videos to social media platforms like Tik Tok and Instagram, your videos will be compressed. 

Unfortunately, the compression causes a loss in video quality. To avoid a loss in quality, you need to send your GoPro video through a platform that doesn’t automatically compress videos.

I recommend uploading your GoPro videos to your computer first. Then, you can either upload the video to YouTube or upload it to a digital storage platforms like Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive.  

Once your video is uploaded to one of these platforms, copy the link to the video and share it with whoever you’d like.
