I'm trying many configurations to upload a video on Twitter. Twitter displays the following error message:

"Your media file is not compatible."

Which is the right format and encoding to upload Blender videos in twitter?

I have just downloaded video into Twitter with next rendering settings. On the picture below I marked significant properties. Some of them can be set with other values according Twitter documentation I guess. For example fps can be till 40.

In my case it looks like the problem was in audio codec. I did not have any sound so the codec was none. But Twitter require audio codec anyway.

Settings for video rendering

    $\begingroup$ The solution works, but in my case I had also to select Lossless in Output Quality settings $\endgroup$ – m039 Sep 23 '20 at 13:43
  • $\begingroup$ Worked with these settings! Even though my clip was originally 752 frames and didn't get accepted, but when I doubled the speed to 376 frames, it was accepted - very weird stuff... $\endgroup$ – Manu Järvinen Nov 3 '20 at 23:41
  • $\begingroup$ It happened again, no matter what settings I used, it didn't work at first - but when I sped up the footage and kept it at 30fps and reduced the length of the clip from 626 frames to 313 frames, it was finally ACCEPTED by Twitter, whee :) (What a weird system they have) $\endgroup$ – Manu Järvinen Jun 18 at 6:54

I rendered some videos for Twitter and they worked. The configuration I used was:

Frames per second: 24

File Format: FFmpeg video

And in the "Encoding" panel I just used the preset "H264 in MP4"

  • $\begingroup$ Hello mugnozzo, thank you for your reply. is it to much if I ask you to upload a .blend file with your configurations? I tried the specs you mention without success. $\endgroup$ – chicOrtiz Aug 15 '18 at 15:18
  • $\begingroup$ Same issue here, these configurations don't seem to make the difference :( $\endgroup$ – j6m8 Mar 26 '20 at 20:10

I'm not sure about the exact settings, but Twitter Developer pages has a list of requirements and recommendations for video uploads:

https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/media/upload-media/uploading-media/media-best-practices

See from the "Video specifications and recommendations" header in the middle of the page. Maybe your video doesn't have the right framerate or resolution, which aren't a part of format or encoding settings.

    $\begingroup$ Unfortunately following these guidelines does not seem to give a successful result; there's something missing from this list. $\endgroup$ – j6m8 Mar 26 '20 at 20:08

For me, no matter what settings I used, it didn't work at first - but when I sped up the footage and kept it at 30fps and reduced the length of the clip from 626 frames to 313 frames, it was finally accepted by Twitter, yay!
