Codecs - H.264/AAC - For best results, we recommend using H.264 (sometimes referred to as MP4) for the video codec and AAC (short for Advanced Audio Codec) for the audio codec. If you're on a Windows machine, WMV3 is a good choice for video codec.
Frame Rate - minimum 24 FPS (frames per second)
Resolution - 640x480 for standard definition 4:3 video, 720x480(max) for widescreen 16:9
Deinterlacing - YES - If you have this option, enable it. If you shoot in DV format, this is an especially important. If you do not deinterlace, you will often get weird-looking horizontal lines in your video.
Audio - 320 kbps / 44.100 kHz - Choose AAC for the audio codec. You'll want to set the bit rate to 320 kbps and the sample rate to 44.100 kHz.
Format - MP4 - While we like MP4 the best, we will generally accept any of the following formats: avi, divx, mkv, mov, mp4, m4v, wmv.
Note: Some formats compress better without loss of quality and you will be able to submit smaller files between formats.
