Adding a Streaming Video Lesson to your Course

Before uploading your video to Mavenseed, here are some quick tips to ensure your video is ready for the spotlight:
    Keep the video in a 16:9 ratio. We've found 1920x1080 or 1280x720 to be the sweet spot,
    It's okay to compress it with h.264 or let Mavenseed do the compression for you. Keeping in mind the small the video you upload the less time you wait, and help us keep server storage mitigated,
    .mp4 and or .movs are preferred.
