No, Dacast does not place limits on video file size. However, it is important to point out that videos with larger file sizes could impose issues on the viewers’ end, so they require a bit of extra attention.
For example, if you are uploading a 4K file, it is important that you offer multiple renditions of the video so that viewers with slower internet will be able to watch it without buffering.
In order to create multiple renditions of your video content for multi-bitrate streaming, you’ll have to use our video transcoding tool or an external transcoder.
If you are uploading files that are 2GB or larger, we suggest using FTP upload as the preferred secure method.
