Google Photos will no longer allow you to upload unsupported video formats. This way you will not be able to benefit from the free unlimited storage that the company offers.
The news was published at support site of the service earlier this week.
It's a minor change that doesn't seem to affect too many users, as Google Photos already supports the following video formats:
.mpg, .mod, .mvv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts, and. mkv.
In the list above there are no RAW and VOB files that usually occupy large storage space. So, if you've saved such files in your account, get ready for surprises, as you'll probably have to pay the space they occupy on Google if you do not remove them from your account.
Keep in mind that the service provides free and unlimited space for storing images at low resolution. Photographers and other professionals who want a full resolution of the images they upload to the service will have to pay.
According to the company, free and unlimited storage allows only "optimized" images (ie compressed).
