Preparing video for social media is a lot more than simply heaving it into your site. In this exercise, take a look at the Facebook video specifications and learn how to use a ratio calculator.
- [Instructor] I have come to the conclusion that it seems…like you can't access your social media sites…without encountering a video…or a video-based infographic containing text,…still images, video, and audio.…Preparing video files for these sites such as Facebook…has some pretty concise requirements…and I'm going to concentrate on Facebook rather…than reviewing all of them.…The first thing that you need…to understand about Facebook…is you just simply can't upload a 20 minute,…1080p video you have prepared.…
You've got to check out the specs and they are over here.…So you point your browser to this site,…and as you see, when it comes to video,…there are four preferred aspect ratios,…one-to-one and these three here.…This is especially true when it comes…to working with mobile.…In fact, they all sort of reflect video being shot…in the portrait mode rather than landscape mode.…Now, you can see this if you scroll down just a little bit…to the aspect ratio specifications.…
Notice how they're all portrait.…Even so, you can get away with a 16:9 aspect ratio…
