Lumière accepts almost any video file in a well known format, including files with the following extensions:
Once your video is uploaded, we then process it into the required formats and sizes. Because of this additional processing, it's important that you provide a high quality source file. We accept videos up to 5 GB in size, though your ability to upload files that big will be dependent on your internet connection.
Larger files do take longer to process. Typically, 10-15 minute videos ready for use within a couple of minutes. On the other hand, an hour long video might take 20 minutes or more to become ready. You can monitor the status of your uploading and processing media files on the Videos landing page.
We do not currently provide tools for editing or trimming your videos after upload, so be aware that your video will be presented to your viewers exactly how it appears when it's uploaded. If you do make a mistake, you can always upload a new video!
