Sometimes a prerecorded video is not in the correct format for using StreamYard's long form video sharing feature. Even if you have an MP4 file, the file might use a unique codec that your browser doesn't support. Follow the steps below to easily convert it to the right format.
Note: We recommend h.264 video and AAC audio for StreamYard. If your video is already in this format, no need to convert!
How to Convert Your Video
- Go to this website and upload your video by clicking the "Upload your file" button (or drag and drop your video onto the page).
- Once it's finished uploading, choose "MP4" from the dropdown box on the right.
- Click "Convert file".
- Once it's finished converting, click "Download MP4".
