To upload video for Secure Online Screening, select the upload link directly under your project title.

Recommended Video Settings
We recommend the following settings to optimize video quality on the IMDb site:
• File size: Less than 2GB
• Frame: 480 px by 360 px at 30 frames per second
• Format: Flash Video (Codec: Sorenson or VP6 codec) or Quicktime • We do not currently support HD video. You will be able to upload an HD video, but the file will NOT be displayed in HD.

Recommended browsers: Firefox Chrome

* If your computer has a sleep mode, please turn it off while attempting your upload.

Please allow time for video upload processing. Keep in mind, the bigger the file, the longer the processing time. The upload process can take a few minutes or a few hours. Once the file is uploaded, it can take up to 24 hours for it to finish processing. Smaller files will take less, and heavier traffic periods will also delay the processing times. ***IMPORTANT*** Do NOT submit/attach your Secure Online Screener to your submission until you have watched the upload in its entirety. To view your Secure Online Screener, select the "view" link directly below your project title. Once in the project form, select the "Full Movies" link, and then click on your video. Your file will not appear there until AFTER it has finished processing.
