Google Photos makes changes to your unlimited video storage

"Not accepted" videos are no longer valid

Google has introduced a small change to its storage policy, on which the children of Android PoliceAs you can see, go to the next section "Help downloading or deleting unsupported videos" and now clarification which reads as follows:

important: Videos uploaded after December 6, 2018 take up storage space.

Obviously this explanation is new and tells us that there is certain video formats that no longer benefit from unlimited storage of the company, eats you for so much space on the plan you've linked to your account. This message appears only in this section of Google Photos help, so it is understood that it affects unspecified formats, as we have said. And what are these? The files, counted by hand, for happiness.

And this is that if you consult this section in Google Photos Help, you will confirm this in a list of accepted video formats are the most popular and used by users. They are the following (a total of 17 formats): .mpg, .mod, .mvv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts and .mkv,

As mentioned in our source, you are unlikely to want to keep a formatted video in Google's unlimited cloud.VOB (type of DVD-Video file) to specify an example or a video clip.raw, more like a professional camera. However, the situation, of course, can happen, so the only thing you need to know now is this since last December 6, Google Photos no longer lets you store them without taking up the right place in your account.

Perhaps, despite the specific cases, there are so many of us who use Google Photos and their unlimited storage worldwide, that there will be "too many" cases of people who store files that were not manageable from the platform, and they had to place the border somewhere. While this is so … we will not protest, Google.
