Recommended Video Settings

Generally we try to do as little encoding to your video as possible in order to preserve source quality. However, videos with very high bitrates must be compressed in order to stream properly over all internet connections.

Pro accounts can encode up to 4K UHD while free accounts can encode up to 720p.

Suggested Settings

4K | 60FPS: Under 16M bitrate  PRO 

4K | 30FPS: Under 13M bitrate  PRO 

1080p | 60FPS: Under 9M bitrate  PRO 

1080p | 30FPS: Under 8M bitrate  PRO 

720p | 60FPS: Under 7M bitrate

720p | 30FPS: Under 5M bitrate

If you upload in the specified format and your video falls under the acceptable bitrate range, your videos will upload faster and will stream in the highest quality possible.

This only applies when you're viewing on laptop and desktop - mobile viewers will continue receive a lower-resolution version that's optimized for maximum compatibility.
