I am trying to migrate from Flickr to iCloud Photos, and having some trouble. I am currently using an iCloud account on a Windows 10 machine.
Albums: It seems to be possible to upload albums from Photos.app on a Mac, but not on Win - only choice is upload and then organise. Am I wrong?
Is there a supported file spec for iCloud anywhere? The one I've seen mentions support for MOV files, but with no codec specifics. I am trying to upload .mov files from an old Lumix.
A "normal" video .mov uploads fine. The issue is with the other mov type, which might be Motion JPEGs (these are essentially photos with an .amr sound recording packaged in a .mov). iCloud won't accept those even after conversion into an mp4. Is this because of the very low (sub-500kbitsec) bit rate?
Converting to MP4 with a custom VBR and stitching multiple of those files seems to have worked. Although iCloud for Windows still gives an "Unsupported file error", it is uploaded. This leaves question one.
