Video banners are a great way to showcase your school/college/unit/department, etc. These banners are typically used on the homepage but can also be implemented on tier pages.
Video banners are typically comprised of 4-5 clips and should be below 4 MB max. No text should be included in the videos for accessibility reasons.
See some examples of video banners:
Video banner requirements
Video banners should be under 4 MB in size. To meet this size requirement, your video should:
- Have no sound playing in the video
- Be a maximum of 10 seconds long
- Have a 16:9 aspect ratio
- Be compressed
If you’re having difficulty, try:
- Moving from a large resolution to a smaller resolution that will be upscaled (900X300 instead of 1800X600)
- Making your video shorter (eight-second loop vs. 10-second loop)
- Increasing compression
