Video compression

If an upload error occurs during the upload, the video may be too large. You can use the following options to compress a video.


teachr has current upload limit of 500 MB for each video upload.

We recommend max 15-20 minutes per video to be uploaded on each section so that the video can be uploaded easiy without any error.

You can also upload more than one video for each section of the course and combine them with different building blocks to make the course not so monotonous.

If you want to compress videos by the file size look at the following instructions with Adobe Media Encoder.

If you don't have Adobe Media Encoder download a trail on media-encoder or you can also use the Online-Converter Tool

  1. Open Media Encoder

  1. Click on the Link Match Source - High bitrate

  1. Select the H.264 Format and the Preset on Match-Source High bitrate or Medium bitrate

Check if the file is under 500 MB under "Estimated File Size:" which is the current upload limit by teachr.
