"I am in the group of non pro photographers, who film short 30 to 60 second videos of familys. But I still want superb video quality so I ordered the Samsung NX1. And I do not edit the clips, I just want to save them, view them and share them. I would like to know the easiest way to convert an H.265 HEVC video from my NX1 camera to a format that I can upload and share on YouTube with family and friends. I prefer the video to still be sharp like the original files."
