Wistia does have a few specifications and guidelines we recommend following in order to obtain the best performance using our service.
- Codec: h.264
- Resolution: between 640px and 3840px (4K) wide
- Bitrate (recommended): 5,000 – 10,000 kbps
- Framerate: constant, 15-60 frames per second
- Aspect Ratio: Get crazy! We accept videos of any aspect ratio.
- Codec: AAC (Advanced Audio Codec)
- Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
- Channels: 2-channel Stereo (not surround)
In some sections of our exporting guide we recommend a higher quality bitrate. Wistia encodes versions of your video (or derivatives) at a target bitrate, so the exported bitrate isn’t super important. We recommend capping your videos at 10,000 kbps to keep your file size down.
