What are the video spec requirements?

Video Specifications

When you upload a video, we re-encode it into our formats and resolutions. However there are still formats that are easier for us to work with than others.

If you are a DVD Producer, we are happy to accept full DVD's shipped to us, or VOB Files, if they are correctly split into scenes, that helps. (Contact support)

Preferred Format is .MP4 (MPEG-4 h.264)

Other formats our team can easily work with are .f4v and .flv (Flash), .mkv, .mpg (mpeg-1 and mpeg-2), .avi and .VOB

Please do not send us .WMV or .3GP files.
