Video Formats

Posted on by developers

vidmeup accepts a wide range of video formats. You will find a list below of all the file types accepted – but bear in mind some video formats work better and are more compatible with certain computers, devices and software.
You can upload any of the following file types:
Windows Media Video(.AVI)
.WMV (windows)
.MOV (mac)
.MP4 (iPod/iPad/PSP)
.MPEG
.FLV (Adobe Flash)
3gp
You can also upload the following file types, however the quality will not be as good:
.3gp
.asf
.divx
.flv
.m4v
.mkv
.rm
.vob
If you do not think that your current video file format is recognised by vidmeup, you may get the best uploading results from converting your file to .FLV video with MP3 audio.

To convert any video format to one of the accepted formats, you may like to use free or commercial software to help convert your file. You can find this type of software easily by searching the web for a video converter.

If you are using Windows and you want to edit and convert a video, go to programs> Movie Maker, by default it saves projects as .MSWMM files. .MSWMM files are project files (which means that the file only contains the layout of your video and does not contain the final video itself). We do not accept .MSWMM files. To upload your Windows Movie Maker video to vidmeup, select the “Save to My Computer” option to save the file in an accepted format. You can then upload the generated file.

If you are using Apple you can use iMovie to do this and save as a .MOV file.

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 or FLV with MP3 audio. If that is not an option, exporting the file as a RAW (uncompressed) video format, then encoding it in an external programme is another alternative.
