Facebook/YouTube Video Format - Convert Video to Facebook/YouTube Format for uploading

The article is written down to illuminate the best supported format by YouTube and Facebook to share videos on YouTube, Facebook and other online website freely.

YouTube is so popular that you can find whatever you like - music videos, sports videos, new film trailers and funny videos, and it is also fantastic for everyone to appreciate their brilliant donwloadings and recordings on YouTube.

As the most popular social network, Facebook now gains more and more users all over the world. Facebook lets us upload photos and videos to share our daily activities, interests, backgrounds or real-life connections.

And to share videos on your YouTube or Facebook, you should know something first: YouTube/Facebook only supports sharing video in several formats, i.e, you can't upload your video in incompatible formats to YouTube and Facebook.

Part 1. YouTube and Facebook Accepted Video Formats

YouTube supported video formats and file extensions:

MOV (.mov), 3GP (.3gp, .3g2, .3gpp), MPEG-4 (.mp4), FLV (.flv), AVI (.avi), MPEGS (.mpg), WMV (.wmv), WebM (.webm)

Facebook supported video formats and file extensions:

MPEG-4 (.mp4, .m4v. mpeg4), MPEG (.mpe, .mpg, .mpeg, .dat), FLV (.flv, .f4v), AVI (.avi), WMV (.wmv), 3GP (.3gp, .3g2, .3gpp), MKV (.mkv), AVCHD (.m2ts/.mts), MOD (.mod), QuickTime video (.mov), DVD video (.vob), TOD (.tod), DIVX (.divx), DV video, OGG (.ogm, .ogv), MPEG Transport Stream (.ts), Nullsoft Video (nsv)

Though YouTube/Facebook supports a very wide variety of video codecs, audio codecs and container formats, you'll have the best luck with the MP4 format in uploading. This is because video format that is regarded as the best shall usually meet the following criteria:

  1. Smallest size possible 
  2. High Quality (not very lossy) 
  3. Video should be playable in possibly all media players and websites.

Tips: If the video you want to upload to Facebook/YouTube is not in the compatible video format list, you will need to take time to convert the unsupported video files into Facebook/YouTube avaliable video via a professional video converter program.

Part 2. The Best Video Format Converter for Facebook/YouTube Uploading

Click the "Format" drop-down list to select "H.264 Video (*.mp4) " from "Common Video" Category which is supported by many uploading websites like Youtube, Facebook and Vimeo.

Step 3 Edit video files before converting (Optional)

Step 4 Compress video to a small size (Optional)

Just click "Settings" to manipulate video & audio parameters to set video Encoder,Frame Rate and Bit Rate.

Don't know how to do settings? Take a look at the info below:

Requirements of Uploading Music/Video to YouTube

YouTube has very strict requirements for music, video and movie uploading, in terms of file size, duration, resolution, codec, frame rate and bitrate.


Duration: YouTube limits the length of a video file to 15 minutes. It means a user can only upload a video of 15 minutes at most.


File size: Only a 2GB video file can be uploaded from YouTube webpage, but 20GB is allowed when an up-to-date browser is used.


Resolution: 4:3 (640 x 480) or 16:9 (1280 x 720). When the video is uploaded to the site, YouTube will make it 16:9 or add vertical black bars (for 4:3).



Deinterlacing: Although Videos either in progressive scanning or interlaced scanning mode can be uploaded, YouTube suggests turning interlaced videos to deinterlaced before uploading for the best video quality. Therefore, progressive scanning is needed for video uploading.


Frame rate: Keeping original video frame rate is preferred. And 25-30 fps is recommended.


Bitrate: Bitrate is different from screen resolution and is highly related to video codec.


Requirements on Facebook Video Uploading


Codec: The best codec to upload a video to Facebook is H.264 (in MP4 or MOV video formats) with AAC audio.


Aspect Ratio and Resolution: Facebook limits the aspect ratio of a video to be in the range of 9x16 to 16x9. The higher the resolution is, the larger the file size will be. So please learn to control the resolution. Facebook recommends an aspect ratio of less than 1280px in wideth and divisible by 16px.


Frame rate: Identical to the case on YouTube, 25-30 fps is also considered as the best Frame rate range for Facebook.


Step 5. Finish to convert video for Youtube/Facebook

Click "Convert" button to start converting your unsupported video to Youtube/Facebook compatable MP4 format, it will finished in few minutes with high output video quality.

Now please try this Video Converter for YouTube/Facebook, the program will transcode video clips like AVCHD footage, WMV video and Gopro recordings with top speed with the help of NVIDIA CUDA and AMD APP acceleration. Now you can freely upload your videos to Youtube/Facebook website for sharing your delightful moments with friends and epal.

    Louis Vuitton iPhone 6 Plus Wallet Cases (Friday, 19 June 2015 01:08)

    The device has an improved design over the previous models, but it’s not unique, because it stole the brushed metallic-like finish and the idea to place the volume and power buttons on the back, below the camera, from LG.

    #1: Outline Content Needs for Each Stage of the Funnel
    At the foundation of any successful content marketing strategy is ideation. With the overabundance of content being created, having a strong ideation strategy that maps buyers to the buying funnel will help ensure that you’re creating content with the most impact.
    For successful ideation, start by mapping your buyer personas. Include demographics and psychographic data, as well as interests and pain points. The themes and content types will change based on the needs of your buyer personas as they progress through the buying funnel.
    Top of the Funnel or Awareness Stage
    At the top of the funnel, start building relationships with your buyer personas. Earn permission to communicate with them by getting them to like your page on social media, subscribe to your email newsletter, or sign up for your blog RSS feed.
    At this stage, the content should be mostly informational and focused on helping solve pain points. To reach your audience, use blog posts, social media content, and engaging infographics.
