Is it normal for optimized media to be 8x in size? I downloaded a 3GB video from my camera and clicked on optimized media. I then revealed in finder of that file and now it's 23GB. Is this normal? Without optimized media the video won't even playback on my iMac. So I'm left with no choice but to optimize so is this my only option right absolutely murders my disk space.


P.S. I'm using a GoPro camera.
