Video Specifications for Sharing Videos on Social Networks

The best way to share videos is to use videos that are sized for each network's specific requirements. However, networks often differ in their video specifications, and sharing the same video to multiple networks can create some discrepancies between how the video is presented.

This article provides each network's basic requirements for video sizes and file types.

If you are posting something and it's getting denied or the media isn't rendering the way you expect, please check this list to ensure the platform supports it.
