The video must have a minimum resolution of 720 px. If it lasts 10 minutes or less, their maximum size should be 650 MB, and those up to 60 minutes, 3.6 GB. Remember also that the file format must be MP4, its cover image must be 420 x 654 px, and that the previews will be of 4:5 centered crop. Finally, keep in mind that the maximum duration of the video, if uploading it from your mobile, will be of only 15 minutes.

Profile image
: the aspect ratio of a profile image is 110 x 110 px or 180 x 180 px, regardless of its original quality version. Therefore, its ideal size should be much larger to avoid low pixels. In other words, this should be a perfectly square image with no space.
