What is the Difference Between Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD)?

HD vs SD

High definition is a very high quality format of your video. If you uploaded an HD video, your video will playback in HD. If you uploaded an SD video (~640x480), then it will playback in standard definition.

We specifically encode your videos in the following formats, assuming you uploaded the largest resolution we support:

240p, 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p, 2K, 4K and 8K.

We cannot upgrade or improve the quality of your video files. The higher quality you upload, the better quality your viewers will enjoy.
