It is a fact that videos have an affect in learning and can offer the most effective learning outcomes. As a result, it is important to use videos in your courses, all you need is a good camera and a microphone.

1 Video file type

Uploading a video in LearnWorlds is not as much a question of file formats, but rather of video codecs used in the specific files. We do support most major codecs, but for best results we recommend H.264 or Apple ProRes 422. In most cases if you have a .mp4 or .mov video file you will be just fine. However, you shouldn’t have any problems uploading videos with other major video file extensions like:











If this is getting too technical for you, then just make sure that you are uploading an mp4 or mov video file :)

2 Video resolution

The recommended video resolution is 720p (1280 x 720px) and the recommended frame rate is 24-30 frames per second (fps).

3 Video size

LearnWorlds supports file sizes up to 1 GB. However in most cases you don’t need a file that big and your high definition videos can be much smaller. We recommend you compress your files as much as possible, especially if you are using 720p or 1080p. This will save you a lot of time from uploading and encoding these videos.

To really compress your videos without losing quality you can use a tool like “Handbrake”:
