Apart from video format, Facebook limits the video parameters like the video codec, video frame, video bitrate, audio channels, vudeo size, video length, etc. You must make sure your video is accepted by Facebook.

Video Profile Settings


The best format to upload to Facebook is H.264 video with AAC audio in MP4 or MOV format. It currently gives you a great bang for your buck in the file size to relative quality ratio, offering the best video compression available, and due to the file size limitations, this format is the optimal choice for Facebook video. And there’s no need to change the parameter during Facebook uploading.


Use a file with the larger edge of the video constrained to1280px. If your video is less than 1280px in size on the larger edge, try to keep your dimensions to multiples of 16px for best compression.

Frame Rate

Usually videos have the best quality if the frame rate is between 25-30 fps. So you are recommended to keep the frame rate of your video at or below30fps.

Aspect Ratio

The aspect ratio of the video must be within the range of9x16 to 16x9which most videos should have, and the video exceeding the file size or length that the upload page suggests will be rejected.


There is no recommendation for Bitrate as it highly rests upon codec. So you are suggested to optimize video for resolution, aspect ratio and frame rate rather than bitrate.

Audio Profile Settings
Codec MP3 is preferred
Samping Rate Use stereo audio with a sample rate of 44,100hz.
Channels The number of audio channels will be maintained for stereo and mono streams. 5.1-channel audio will be down-mixed to stereo. All other channel configurations are currently unsupported.
