Video Message Frequently Asked Questions

With CoSchedule, you can schedule and publish videos to all of our available social networks!

When publishing video to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, CoSchedule will publish the video as native video inside of a social message. Google+, Tumblr, Pinterest, and LinkedIn currently do not allow us to post a native video to a social message. For those social networks, CoSchedule will publish the video as a link hosted by CoSchedule.


Video File Requirements
 
File Types: With video uploading inside CoSchedule, you can upload various different file types. Right now the video file types that CoSchedule currently supports are ".mov", ".qt", ".mp4", ".m4p", ".m4v", ".mpeg", ".mpg", ".avi", ".wmv", ".flv", ".ogg", ".ogv", ".webm", and "mkv."
 
The maximum file size we allow is 1 GB. However, Twitter's max size is 512 MB.
 
The max duration is different for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Facebook is 45 minutes, Twitter is 140 seconds, and Instagram is 60 seconds. There is no time limit to the other social networks. There is no time limit to the other social networks since the social message will be a link to the hosted video.
 
Each network has its own maximum dimensions allowed for a video but we will resize a video down in order to meet those requirements.
 
Each network has restrictions on the height to width ratio of a video. Facebook is 16:9 to 9:16. Twitter is 3:1 to 1:3. Instagram is 1.91:1 and 4:5. Unfortunately, we are unable to fix videos that are outside of these ratios.
 
Can I upload more than one video to a social message? No, each social message can only publish 1 video at a time.
 
The video gallery is not universal across the application. Users can only see uploaded videos in the video gallery for that piece of content. 
 
We will prevent video message to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram via Buffer because Buffer does not support social video via their API.
 
Note: Large videos may take longer than usual during processing. If the publish time is important we recommend scheduling the video in advance.
