What Is The File Size Limit For Videos Uploaded To SmarterQueue?
SmarterQueue has a video upload limit of 512MB (536 million bytes), to align with the limit imposed by Twitter and ensure you can upload videos that can be posted on multiple Social Profiles at once, without issue. Please don't upload any video which exceeds this limit, as it would be rejected.
Videos are also subject to durations limits (ex: Twitter videos are limited to 140 seconds, while Facebook videos are limited to 40 minutes)
If you upload a video that is over the duration limit for the Social Profile you're trying to send to, SmarterQueue will post a link to the video, which should still play inline on the Social Profile.We do transcode (re-compress/resize) all videos that are uploaded so that they're in a format that is accepted by platforms you're posting to.
How Does SmarterQueue Handle My Video Once Uploaded?
SmarterQueue converts videos into the correct streaming format for social sharing, so you don’t have to worry about your social network’s technical requirements.
Videos are converted to streaming MP4 format encoded with H264 at 1280×720 resolution, to ensure that they work on every social network.
All videos are resized down to fit within 1280×720 size (720p). Most cameras record in this ratio (16:9), and if they record at 1280×720, your video will stay the same size. If you upload a 1920x1080p video (1080p), it will be resized down to 1280×720.
If you upload a portrait video (e.g. 720×1280), we resize it down to fit within 720p, resulting in a 404×720 video.
Resizing a video to a lower resolution should have minimal quality loss.
