Infographic: The ultimate guide to posting videos on social media

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and other social networks have discrete criteria for uploading video. Here’s what you should know to ensure your videos always look their best.

Every social network is different, which means that if you want to post a particular video on several sites, one size will not fit all.

Sigh. Uniformity would be too easy, right?

To make communicators’ lives a little easier, CA Video Production has created this helpful guide that lists the optimal file size and resolution for videos on each major social network, as well as:

  • How long videos can be on a given site
  • Each site’s preferred file format
  • Whether the social network has autoplay
  • How big the video will appear if it’s shared on a particular platform

Take a look below, and please use the comments section to share any tips you have about posting videos online.
