Video File Formats

eyeMoviePedia accepts a wide range of video file formats. The video formats listed below can all be easily processed by the editoral office. Some file formats work best and are most compatible with certain computers, software or devices.

  • Windows Media Video (.WMV)
  • .MPEG
  • .AVI
  • .MOV
  • .MP4
  • .FLV
  • .3GP

Keep in mind that each time you convert or "transcode" a video from one type of compression to another, there will be some loss in quality, similar to making a photocopy of a photocopy.

Avoid transcoding a highly compressed video into a format that is accepted as this produces poor results. You'll get better results by going back to your original video editing software (where you initially edited the video), and re-exporting in a format such as MPEG4 with MP3 audio. If that is not an option, exporting the file as a RAW (uncompressed) video format then encoding it in an external program is another alternative.

How to upload

Once you've cut your video, made sure it's smaller than 2 GB in size, and preferably in one of the formats listed above, you can upload it.

  • Click the menu-item in the upper-left area labeled "Upload Video".
  • Fill all required fields, such as title, description, etc.
  • Click the "Select" button to browse for the video file you'd like to upload. Select the file you want to upload.
  • Click the "Upload" button to start the uploading process.
  • After sucessfully uploading the video, it will be processed by the editorial office and you'll be notified when the video is publically visible on this site. Please note, that the processing by the editorial office might take a few days.

It can take from a couple minutes to an hour for your video to upload to eyeMoviePedia, depending on it's file size and the speed of your network connection.
