Video and Audio Formats Supported by Indee

File Size - Upload of videos larger than 20gb in size is not supported.

Codec - H.264. For best results, we recommend using H.264 (sometimes referred to as MP4) for the video codec.

Frame rate - 24, 25 or 30 FPS (Constant). We recommend uploading with frame rates of 24 (or 23.976), 25, and 30 (or 29.97). If you know the frame rate of your footage, it's best to encode your final video at the same frame rate. If you're uncertain what frame rate you shot at, set your frame rate to either "Current" or 30 FPS. If there is an option for keyframes, choose the same value you used for frame rate.

Note: Always choose "constant" frame rate instead of "variable" frame rate.

Bit rate: Bit rate (also known as data rate) controls the visual quality of the video and its file size. The rate is most often measured in kilobits per seconds (kbit/s). If your video editing software gives you the option, choose a “variable” bit rate and set the target to at least:

2,000 kbit/s for standard definition (SD) video
5,000 kbit/s for 720p HD video
10,000 kbit/s for 1080p HD video

Resolution: 1080p. The ideal resolution to upload is 1080p, but Indee will accept and stream any resolution you throw at it.

Note: We don’t support uploads of videos lower than 360p resolution.

Audio: AAC Audio Codec, 320 kbps, 44.100 kHz

We recommend using AAC-LC (low complexity) for the audio codec at a constant bit rate of 320 kbit/s.

Video Format: mp4

While we like MP4 the best, we will generally accept any of the following formats: 3g2, 3gp, 3gp2, 3gpp, asf, asx, avi, divx, m4v, mov, mp4, mpe, mpeg, mpg, ogg, wmv.
