What file types are supported for videos? What are the current storage limits?

What video file types are supported?

The following file types are currently supported:
  • WebM (.webm)

  • AVI (.avi)

  • QuickTime File Format (.mov)

  • Windows Media Video (.wmv)

  • MPEG-4 (.mp4)

  • Matroska (.mkv)

  • 3GPP (.3gp) (please note that 3GPP2 format is not currently supported.)

What file size or time limits exist for a single video?

There is no limit for file size except for that imposed by LiveJournal storage capacity for the user.

What are account storage limits for video hosting?

The storage limit is based on your account level, and your limit is shared with your photo hosting space as well. The current limits are:

  • Basic & Plus users: 1 GB.

  • Paid users: 2 GB (expandable to 10 GB through the shop.)

  • Permanent accounts: 15 GB.

Are there any known browser incompatibilities?

The video player is known to have problems when running in Internet Explorer versions 9 and earlier, and has intermittent issues with Firefox. LiveJournal developers are working to resolve these problems.
