I think you mean H.264 not 265

Facebook can handle up to 1280x720

What is your source format?

Did you look at the Facebook help page?

Facebook supports almost all video file types. Here's the complete list:
3g2 (Mobile Video)
3gp (Mobile Video)
3gpp (Mobile Video)
asf (Windows Media Video)
avi (AVI Video)
dat (MPEG Video)
flv (Flash Video)
m4v (MPEG-4 Video)
mkv (Matroska Format)
mod (MOD Video)
mov (QuickTime Movie)
mp4 (MPEG-4 Video)
mpe (MPEG Video)
mpeg (MPEG Video)
mpeg4 (MPEG-4 Video)
mpg (MPEG Video)
nsv (Nullsoft Video)
ogm (Ogg Media Format)
ogv (Ogg Video Format)
qt (QuickTime Movie)
tod (TOD Video)
vob (DVD Video)
The aspect ratio of the video has to be between 9x16 and 16x9, and the video cannot exceed the file size or length that the upload page suggests.

If you’re having trouble uploading a video, please contact us using the contact form linked to at the bottom of this page.


The larger edge of the video is constrained to 1280px (pixels). We do not rescale videos that are below this maximum in both dimensions.

Aspect ratio must be within the range of 9:16 (0.5625) to 16:9 (1.7777). Videos with aspect ratios that fall outside this range will be rejected.

Frame rate of the uploaded video will be roughly maintained with that of the original, with a maximum of 30fps (frames per second). If the original video has a variable frame rate, we will try to maintain the average frame rate of the original. If we cannot determine the frame rate of the original file, it will be forced to 30fps. Note that if a frame rate is to be decimated, we will only ever decimate by whole integers. This may result in an original video with a relatively high frame rate undergoing a frame rate conversion to below the maximum of 30fps. For example, if a video has a frame rate of 100fps, it will be decimated by a factor of 4, resulting in 25fps.

If a video contains more than one video or audio stream, the first video and audio stream found in the container will be used and the rest will be discarded. Metadata and subtitle tracks will be ignored.


The number of audio channels will be maintained for stereo and mono streams. 5.1-channel audio will be down-mixed to stereo. All other channel configurations are currently unsupported.

Audio will be re-sampled to either 22,050hz or 44,100hz (hertz), whichever is closer to the sample rate of the original file.

Two years from now, spam will be solved. - Bill Gates, World Economic Forum 2004
