    Imagine you captured a few beautiful videos on a trip to Venice and transferred them to your laptop. They play perfectly, but after a few minutes, you notice the video is blurry or fuzzy. You used Windows Media player, even QuickTime, but none could fix blurry video problems.

    It’s frustrating. But don’t worry. There are ways to remove blurriness in videos.

    Read on this post to learn the best methods to fix blurry videos in various situations.

    Why Videos Become Blurry

    Video blur may occur during recording or when you save the videos on a computer or other storage media. If the videos are originally recorded blurry, it is mostly due to shaking of the camera, high ISO, shallow depth of field, wrong focus setup, etc. Videos stored on any drive can get blurry due to corruption, which may happen due to virus infection, improper file transfer or download, etc.

    How to Fix Blurry Videos when Recording

    • Record videos at high resolution.
    • Instead of raster, use vector art when recording videos. Raster art uses several pixels due to which you can’t zoom or enlarge such video as it would become blurry. However, vector art is independent of pixels and resolution. You can scale it without making it blurry.
    • Preferably select MP4 video file format, which is commonly used on web platforms and devices like TV, mobile phone, Tab, etc. The video format offers high quality even when the file size is low.
    • Save videos on a high-quality Class 10 camera SD card
