Uploading MP4 Videos and URLs

Insteo supports a whole range of video files such as MP4, MOV, AVI, WMV - but, playback depends on the setup of your Digital Signage hardware player and CMS software. We recommend videos should be 100MB or less and 2 minutes in length or less.

We've found the safest option is MP4/H.264 video. Even within this format, there are still dozens of choices for how to encode the video. We recommend variable bit-rate videos with a maximum bitrate of 3000kbps. We recommend using Adobe Media Encoder to get videos into the right format.

Insteo Video App also supports YouTube URLs. Perfect for the use of uploading larger length and size video.

Do not upload a MP4 Video and enter a YouTube URL into the same Content Item
