  • Frame Rate: Native (No less than 23.98)
  • Quality: High (QT)
  • Bit Rate: Unrestricted (Minimum 7500 kb/s, if necessary)
  • File must be de-Interlaced (Please, No Interlacing)
  • Multi-pass encoding is preferred, Single-pass encoding isn’t

Also please ensure the audio in the video is formatted to AAVC, in stereo (L R), has a sample rate of 44.100 kHz and has a Bit Rate of 320 kbps CBR.

Avoid any of the following:

Raw, unedited webcam, flip cam or iPhone footage, even if it's HD. Improperly lit or mic'd video footage and user generated content will not be accepted for VEVO either.
