    Default Finally accessed iCloud photos on my PC however videos are not full resolution

    Never knew to log in to iCloud.com to access photos so thank you for that help. Trying now to view a video and the resolution is very poor - it is not poor on my phone or ipad. Are there settings I need to tweak?

    You might want to try downloading the video file to your PC or Mac and then using VLC Player to play it. That player is much better at handling video files than anything else I have used. Also please consider that your iPhone has a very small screen, and your computer has a very large screen so the video will of COURSE look better on the smaller screen no matter what you do.

    I do not know what VLC Player is. Interestingly enough the video did look better once I downloaded it to my PC - when I played it in iCloud, though, it was quite fuzzy.

    It's this...

    VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

    I have downloaded it and recognize it as something I've used before. Much better resolution. Thank you.

    Another probably basic question -- What does it mean that I "skinned" VLC? I meant to pin it to the taskbar and instead skinned it to my desktop?

    I'm full of questions today - Can I access (open) my iCloud videos directly from VLC?
