There are many different types of cloud storage that videographers can use to store and share their videos. With that in mind, we've put together a list and description of the current best cloud storage services for GoPro videos. We've done our best to include a range of choices – some free, some paid – so everyone has something they can use in this list. Take your pick!
P.S We did not include the official Go Pro platform for subscription users, and put only alternatives here 🙂
Degoo is one of the best cloud storage services for GoPro videos as it offers 100GB FREE storage, which is crazy, and is one of the best free cloud storage deals available (we will mention even larger free storage cloud spaces in this article). Degoo also has a paid option that gives you up to 10TB of space (for $100 yearly). This is great for GoPro videos as it means you can upload a lot of 5K video files and already edited travel videos without worrying about running out of space on the free plan!
Dropbox is probably the most popular cloud storage service. Dropbox allows users to store their videos online for free, but with a 2 GB limit. Dropbox also allows you to view and share your videos on any device with their app: phone, tablet, desktop... you name it! So Dropbox is great if you want not only to store your videos but also share them with your team or family members. Their paid subscription for individuals offers up to 2 TB for $9.99 per month (billed annually).
#3 Google Drive
Google Drive is another powerful cloud storage service and a great competitor to Dropbox. Google offers up to 15 GB of free space, and that's quite a lot. But for your Go Pro footage, you will likely need more. You can also purchase additional space at the rate of 100GB for $1.99. Like Dropbox, you can access your Google Drive from any device as long as you have an internet connection.
#4 Microsoft OneDrive
OneDrive is quickly becoming one of the most popular cloud storage services out there! OneDrive offers 5GB of cloud storage for free. OneDrive also makes it easy to share your videos with friends, family, and team members. OneDrive is compatible with all desktop operating systems (e.g., macOS, Windows), as well as Android and iOS mobile devices.
#5 Apple iCloud
Apple created iCloud in 2011 to meet the rapidly increasing demand for cloud storage. iCloud is very intuitive and works seamlessly with all Apple devices. Like OneDrive, iCloud also allows users to share their videos with friends, family, and team members. They offer 5 GB of free space as well as a paid plans, like 50GB for $0.99 per month, 200GB for $2.99 per month, or 2TB for $9.99 per month.
pCloud is a Swiss company that specializes in online storage, backup, and file-sharing services. It offers 10GB of free space + more on a referral basis which can be increased by 1GBs for each invited person. PCloud is also very secure and gives you the option to encrypt your files before uploading them. Encrypted data is stored in a second location, away from other files. This makes your information less vulnerable to cyberattacks and other risks.
Sugar Sync is another good cloud storage service for your videos. They offer up to 5GB of free space with an option to get more free space by inviting friends to join the platform. Sugar Sync works on all desktop and mobile devices so you can access your files from anywhere like most of our already previewed cloud services.
Blomp offers a crazy amount of 200GB of FREE lifetime storage for its users. It is really the only cloud service that offers such a free storage space. However, it is still not enough for a huge amount of 4K videos, especially if you are continuously taking them. But considering that the service is free, Blomp would be a good option to store your videos and perhaps even back up some data from your computer. You just have to keep in mind that this company is still quite new and this cloud service is not as safe as the other more reputable ones.
The box is a very popular cloud storage service that provides up to 10GB of free space. You can save, view, share and collaborate on your data from any device - smartphone, tablet, or computer. It is compatible with both Android and iOS devices as well as Windows-based computers. Box has apps for all operating systems including macOS, Windows, Android, and iOS.
In conclusion, Dropbox seems to be one of the best choices for storing your Go Pro videos because it offers a large enough amount of storage space and has great video preview features. However, if you want to get as much free space as you could, you should choose Blomp. You just have to keep in mind it could be not that stable like the most popular platforms. If you are also a Mac user who wants a truly cross-platform data storage option, iCloud seems to be the best choice. Especially now that it has been integrated with iPhones and iPads.
