You may would like to shoot everything with a video camera and burn them on to DVDs, such as your wedding video, high school reunion and home party. You may also keen to buy some DVD discs when the latest movies released for watching on your big screen TV at home. Therefore, dozens of homemade or commercial DVD discs may have piled up in the cupboard waiting to be seen. Do you want to share these contents from DVD to Facebook, which is a popular social networking site lets us keep constant contact with family, friends and acquaintances. It is  is a great way for you to share your personal moments or just your favorite DVD movies with a variety of your friends.

However, when you are trying to upload DVD to Facebook, you may get into trouble since Facebook doesn't support directly uploading DVD native files. What's more, those DVDs you bought from store contain various copy proteaction and region code that avoid you from extracting contents from DVD discs. Uploading DVD to Facebook seems to be a difficult task.

Facebook supported file formats

According to Facebook Help Center, we find that Facebook only accept these video formats listed below:

3g2/3gp/3gpp (Mobile Video), wmv/asf (Windows Media Video), avi (AVI Video), dat (MPEG Video), divx (DIVX Video), dv (DV Video), f4v/FLV (Flash Video), m2ts (M2TS Video), mkv (Matroska Format), mod (MOD Video), mov/qt (QuickTime Movie), mp4/m4v/mpeg4 (MPEG-4 Video), mpe/mpeg/mpg (MPEG Video), mts (AVCHD Video), nsv (Nullsoft Video), ogm/ogv (Ogg Media Format), tod (TOD Video), ts (MPEG Transport Stream), vob (DVD Video).

Sometimes, although your video format is included in Facbook supported list, you may still meet other uploading issues such as large video file size, long video length, wrong codec, bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio, etc. The following best Facebook video and audio settings are listed if you want to go into deep study about the best video format for Facebook.

1. Best Video Profile Settings for Facebook


The best format to upload to Facebook is H.264 video with AAC audio in MP4 or MOV format. 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 of 9x16 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.

2. Best Audio Profile Settings for Facebook


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.

3. Maximum file size: 4GB.

4. Video duration: less than 120 min.
