This part of google photos is very strange for me. I have some movie clips from my husbands movie camera on my computer, I was wondering if I can upload them to my Google Photos in an album, they are mp4 format.

The talk of video I have let go over my head concentrating just catching up and and uploading my photos making albums etc. I have had a wonderful time taking photos of the old family albums, and uploading for differemt family members for the future. I will have to concentrate on having backups now, downloading them onto my computer. Of cause the editing on the old photos has been very time consuming but well worth it.

Back to my question can these be done (first paragraph). I tried but only 4 was able to be done

I hope I havent taken to long in explaining. But as I cant talk on Zoom, owing to the time factor, I would like you to know how I enjoy your shows

Regards Gail

mp4 files should be good to upload to Google Photos. You can treat them just like photos. Drag and drop, or use the Upload button to “pull” them up. If some don’t work, I would suspect that there is something wrong with the video file. Can you play it on your computer? 

Sounds like you’re doing great with the photos of old family albums – way to go!
