BuddyBoss Media Not Working Properly With WP Smush Pro

BuddyBoss Media Not Working Properly With WP Smush Pro. The issue is that when turned on, files do not upload (or very small might) and even when uploading files under 1.5mb does not work -- though when SMUSH is deactivated, it does work?
I'd like to keep using SMUSH as it's great for image compression -- but they don't work well together? IDEAS?
