Facebook has a long list of supported formats for video and they cover almost all video codecs known to man.
However below is the ideal recommendation for your videos:
- MOV or MP4 Codec
- 4000px wide
- 30 fps (frame rate)
- 44,100hz stereo audio
This codec will give you the best results as far quality and compression.
Try to keep your dimension to multiples of 16px for best results.
You have two options with aspect ratio, you can go the traditional way and use 16:9, which is the way we watch everything on TV.
Or you can flip it to 9:16 which is vertical video (I hate vertical video but I’m not here to judge).
If you happen to own a professional editing application like Adobe Premiere Pro, it’s very easy to export to Facebook’s settings.
Step by Step Breakdown
- First go to Exportfrom the file menu, then select Media. Make sure you have your sequence selected or this option will be grayed out.
(If it doesn’t work don’t panic, just click on your sequence and try again).
Or, you can skip all the rigmarole and just hit the Command Mon a Mac or Control Mon a PC.
But, you still have to make sure you sequence is selected.
- Once you are on the Export Settings Screen, select H.264 from the Formatdropdown menu.
- Then, go to Preset. Select Facebook 1080p Full HD or the 4K option, which ever works for you. Click on the export button and let the magic begin. Upload your video and your done.
