Video file sizes and types
You can upload up to 50 files with a maximum of 15GB per file.
We accept most file types for downloads and MP4 files for streaming.
Download and streaming limits for video
You have complete control over how many downloads your customers have, or how many times they are able to watch your video.
The same applies if you are streaming (renting) videos. You might want to limit your customers to a fixed number of times they can watch or a fixed number of days for each rental.
