BE AWARE that “Unlimited video storage at Google Photos has a catch” – Android Authority

If you are posting videos on Google Photos that have a file format that is not listed below; then, the file size will count against your online storage total. Video file sizes can add up quickly.

The Google Photos app icon.

If you use Google Photos to store video files, you likely are happy you have unlimited space (with some compression). However, there’s a new limitation to this unlimited storage.

The new policy took effect on December 6, 2018.

The supported video file formats are: .mpg, .mod, .mmv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts, and .mkv.

IMPORTANT: Posting your kid’s photo to Facebook? Maybe think twice.

Technology and Facebook can be wonderful things; however, as technology continues to advance (such as facial recognition), we cannot foresee how this technology can be used in a way that can ultimately compromise our being for financial gain, or ill intent. In all my years as a tech guru, I have seen the good that technology has benefited us; but, there will always be that element of evil that will take technology advancement and use it against us. I encourage you to read this article about posting our kids on Facebook or any social network for that matter and how this ultimately profiles them in a way (as they develop) and how this could be used in the future.

In other words, it’s possible that your precious child’s face is already being studied and analyzed by Facebook in its efforts to build better facial recognition algorithms. What those algorithms could be used for in the future is anyone’s guess, as even Facebook won’t confirm they will just stick to suggested photo tags.
