We support most video file formats for ingestion. The most common formats that are uploaded are H.264 codecs, as an MP4, and ProRes files. See below for our recommended file format.

Minimum Recommended File Format

To produce a good quality encoding of an HLS and DASH file of approximately 10GB each for a 90-minute film, allowing for a faster upload compared to a large ProRes file, we recommend the following:

  • 15,000 kbps or higher

  • 1280 x 720 is good. 1920 x 1080 is better

  • H.264 and AAC are the preferred video and audio codecs

  • Stereo Mix

If you are ingesting content that has 5.1 audio, then please refer to the Audio Channel Support guide.
