How Will My Video Look When Published?

In This Article

Videos On Twitter

Twitter allows native videos between 1:3 ratio (tall), and 3:1 ratio (wide), up to 140 seconds in length. 

Anything within that aspect ratio range, and under 140 seconds, will appear on the Twitter feed as a native video (with autoplay/sizing as per Twitter’s defaults). 

When your video is posted natively, it will start playing inline when users scroll to it in their feeds as shown here:

If you upload a video that doesn’t meet the above requirements (usually if it’s longer than 140 seconds), we will post the video as a Twitter Player Card, where users can click to watch the video in SmarterQueue’s video player:

Videos On Facebook

Facebook’s documentation states they support videos with the maximum aspect ratio ranges of 9:16 (tall) to 16:9 (wide), but we’ve found that in practice, they will accept aspect ratios between 1:4 and 4:1. 

Videos can be up to 40 minutes long. If you post a video within these size/length limits, it will appear as a native/inline video in Facebook, with Facebook’s default autoplay settings as shown here:

If the video doesn’t fit within these limits, we’ll post a link preview of the video, using the thumbnail and video title that you set. The link will let your audience view the video in a new tab, on the SmarterQueue video player page.

Videos On LinkedIn

LinkedIn only allows third-party schedulers to natively upload videos to company pages. If you schedule a video to a LinkedIn company page, then it will play inline as a native video on the post as shown below 💪:

LinkedIn Video Link Preview 

You can still create video posts for personal profiles, though we will post the video as a link preview. 

When your audience clicks on the preview, it will open the video in a new tab, and they can watch the video on our video player page.

The video will open in a new tab inside the SmarterQueue video player as shown below:

Videos On Instagram

You can schedule short-form video (less than 60 seconds) to your Instagram Feed and longer-form video (1 minute - 15 minutes when uploading from the app) to IGTV! You can find more details about the video resolution and Instructions for Instagram here

IGTV Videos 

Note: When you post a video to IGTV, you'll have the option to share a 60-second snippet of it to your Instagram Feed as well. For more information, see our detailed article here

Videos On Pinterest

Pinterest allows multiple file types such as .mp4, .mov or .m4v with a max file size of 2 GB. The video length has to be between 4 - 15 minutes with a recommended aspect ratio of 1:1(square), 2:3, 4:5, or 9:16(vertical). 

Due to a limitation with the Pinterest API, you cannot schedule videos to post natively on Pinterest using SmarterQueue. Instead, we'll post your video as a link preview as shown below:

When your audience clicks on the preview, it will open the video in a new tab, and they can watch the video on the SmarterQueue video player page.
