Each platform handles video differently and accordingly has different restrictions when it comes to video format, size, and dimensions.
Video files must meet all of the following criteria:
- Duration should be between 0.5 seconds and 30 seconds (sync) / 140 seconds (async)
- File size should not exceed 15 mb (sync) / 512 mb (async)
- Dimensions should be between 32x32 and 1280x1024
- Aspect ratio should be between 1:3 and 3:1
- Frame rate should be 40fps or less
- Must not have open GOP
- Must use progressive scan
- Must have 1:1 pixel aspect ratio
- Only YUV 4:2:0 pixel format is supported.
- Audio should be mono or stereo, not 5.1 or greater
- Audio must be AAC with Low Complexity profile. High-Efficiency AAC is not supported.
Note that the duration, file size, fps and other constraints may vary based on the media_category parameter.
The media platform is optimized to handle the specifications of video captured on mobile devices. For developers creating their own video (i.e. not uploading video captured directly from a mobile device), please refer to the table below.
Each row represents an upload recommendation, but is not a requirement.
