Upload Video to SproutVideo

We’re pleased to announce our new uploader today. Going forward, your video uploads will be faster, easier, and more reliable. Keep reading for the details on the changes we made, and tips for optimizing your uploads.

Upload Video Easily

We overhauled the mechanism behind video uploads to make uploading faster and more reliable. We’ve also added the ability to drag and drop videos right on to the webpage to make selecting the videos you’d like to upload as simple as possible.

We’ve also added more information about your uploads so you can see the progress of your uploads, an estimate of how much time is left before your uploads finish, and the speed at which your videos are uploading.

Even better, the new uploader is built in HTML5 and no longer relies on Adobe Flash. You don’t have to install any annoying plugins or ensure your browser is up-to-date (though the latter is a good idea anyway).

Tips for Optimizing Video Uploads

When filming, capture the highest quality footage possible to ensure your videos can be displayed in true HD quality online.

During the export process, make sure that your videos are optimized for the web by following our video compression guidelines.
