Best uploading settings for Vimeo

Codec: H.264

A codec is the format in which your video will be encoded. Vimeo accepts most major video codecs, but for best results we recommend using H.264. If you’ re uploading High Definition (HD) video, choose the High Profile H.264 setting instead of Main Profile.

Frame rate

When preparing your video for upload, it’s best to maintain the video’s native frame rate when compressing your video. If your footage exceeds 60 FPS, Vimeo will automatically reduce the frame rate. If there is an option for keyframes, choose the same value you used for frame rate. Important: 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. If your video editing software gives you the option, choose a “variable” bit rate and select a value from the ranges below. You can experiment with different rates if your file is too large or you’re not happy with the quality of your source file.


Video come in all shapes and sizes but there are some of the most common formats.

Audio compression settings

Codec: AAC-LC(Advanced Audio Codec)
For best results, you are recommend using AAC-LC(low complexity) for the audio codec

Data rate: 320 kbit/s
For best results, encode your audio at constant rate of 320 kbit/s.

The best format to upload to Facebook isH.264 video with AAC audio in MP4 or MOVformat. 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


MP3 is preferred

Samping Rate

Use stereo audio with a sample rate of 44,100hz.


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.
