Say goodbye to blurry videos taken on your phone with these easy tricks

Have you ever received a video on your cellphone that looked like it was captured through a hazy lens? Well, one of our CyberGuy readers, Cathy, reached out to us with a burning question about how to sharpen those frustratingly blurry videos sent by others.

Here’s what she asked:

“How can I sharpen poor quality videos sent to my iPhone by others?”

Why do my videos come out blurry on my phone?

Size limitations on attachments

A blurry video typically does not have to do with the camera quality. It actually has to do with the phone’s ability to receive a large file. Oftentimes when you send a video, especially if it’s a longer one, the video gets compressed because of size limits on attachments.

1) You can fix this by trimming the video and sending it in two shorter clips.

How to trim a video on your iPhone

  • Settings
  • Photos
  • Scroll all the way down.
  • Under Transfer to Mac and PC, select Keep Originals.

This should help maintain the video resolution when sharing videos via AirDrop.

How to trim a video on your Android

  • Open the Google Photos app on your Android device. If you don’t have it, you can download it for free from the Google Play Store
  • Tap on the Library tab at the bottom of the screen

  • Once you’re satisfied with the trim, tap on the Save Copy button to save the changes

Settings may vary depending on your Android phone’s manufacturer 

HOW TO TURN LIVE PHOTOS ON AND OFF ON IPHONE

  • Press and hold the side button until the power-off slider appears
  • Drag the slider that says Slide to power off
  • To turn your device back on, press and hold the side button until you see the Apple logo

If you have an iPhone SE 1st generation, 5, or earlier: 

  • Press and hold the top button until the power-off slider appears
  • Drag the slider that says Slide to power off
  • To turn your device back on, press and hold the top button until you see the Apple logo

SECRET IPHONE GESTURES YOU NEED TO KNOW

What if these steps don’t work?

Sharpen the video

If those steps don’t work, my next tip is to sharpen the video to help remove some of that blur.

How to sharpen a video on your Android

  • Click the Edit icon

HOW FACEBOOK SECRETLY COLLECTS YOUR INFORMATION EVEN IF YOU HAVEN’T SIGNED UP

If you’re looking for an app to do the work for you, try one like PowerDirector. This app has the option to stabilize a video, which is sometimes what a blurry video may need if it isn’t a resolution issue. The app has a free trial and then costs a monthly subscription for premium features. At the time of publishing, this app had over a 4.6-star rating on the Apple Store and a 4.4-star rating on the Google Play Store.

iPhone: 4.6 stars (at time of publishing)

Android: 4.5 stars (at time of publishing)

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap Camera
  • Select Record Video
  • Choose which quality and the number of frames you want your camera to record video on.
    The default setting is 1080p HD at 30 fps (frames per. second), which is typically sufficient for most purposes.
    If you want the most aesthetically pleasing image change the setting to 4K at 24 fps. This is the functional equivalent of 35mm motion picture film. However, 4k also uses the most storage space on your phone.

    If you are shooting sports or fast motion and want to avoid a motion blur 4K at 60 fps is the highest resolution to achieve that goal.
    If you intend to use a slow-motion effect in your video editing software, 4K at 60 fps will give you the most beautiful slow-motion result. However, keep in mind that shooting 4K video at 60 fps will take substantially more storage space on your phone than any other setting.

How do I shoot in high-res on an Android?

  • Open the Camera app
  • Tap Camera Ratio at the top (the icon with the 3:4 symbol)
  • Select 3:4 (64MP High Resolution)

Settings may vary depending on your Android phone’s manufacturer 

Kurt’s key takeaways

You want to always make sure that you’re viewing a video in the best possible quality. For the future, make sure your friends and family take high-resolution videos and send them over a good connection. If it still comes out blurry, then my sharpening above should help.
