#Twitter #Video Upload #Fix (Your Media File Could Not Be Processed)

twitter May 17, 2020

I am not regular on #Twitter. But, sometimes I do, and today I tried to post a video in twitter. Failed ( !!? )- with an error message "Your Media File Could Not Be Processed" without further explanation what I am doing wrong ! Then I tried from my mobile as well, but again - #Fail

So, I tried to find out what I am doing wrong and found twitter help page for uploading video. Amazing thing

What are the limitations on video resolutions and aspect ratios that can be uploaded on the web?

  • Minimum resolution: 32 x 32
  • Maximum resolution: 1920 x 1200 (and 1200 x 1900)
  • Aspect ratios: 1:2.39 - 2.39:1 range (inclusive)
  • Maximum frame rate: 40 fps
  • Maximum bitrate: 25 Mbps

Now, when a basic user shooting video, who control all those parameters before shooting a regular video ? #Fail

But it is - what it is ! So, tried to find out an easy #hack to convert any video fast and free for making ready for twitter. As usual - Open Source always be with you. Used FFMPEG on windows, with a single parameter to solve this irritating problem.

Open the cmd prompt. Go to the directory and type following

C:\> ffmpeg -i SOURCE.mp4 DESTINATION.mp4

After some automated ffmpeg magic in background - the output video you can upload to #Twitter.

Hope it helps !
