A project in Chorus Video can contain multiple video files, thumbnails, and captions.
- Chorus supports MP4 and MOV video files up to 5GB.
- We recommend using a video with an aspect ratio of 16:9. If you upload a square or 4:5 video, for example, audiences will see letterboxing on the sides of the embed.
You cannot directly upload a video file (like an .mp4) into the story editor. If your site is not using Chorus Video, we recommend uploading video to a service like YouTube so you can use the embed option.
Enticing thumbnails are an important part in encouraging audiences to watch a video, and they’re also required for syndication.
- We recommend using a 1920x1080px JPG or PNG image for most videos.
- For vertical videos, we recommend 1080x1920px (depending on the platform it will appear on).
Captions are required for accessibility. You can upload caption (SRT) files or request captions when adding a video. When doing this, make sure that you link the caption file and video file to one another on the Files tab.
Tip: If you add _YT or _FB to the end of a video or thumbnail file name, that file will automatically be selected on the appropriate platform card.
