How to upload video on Telegram: the basic requirements

The application allows sharing files that don’t exceed 1.5 GB. Video dimensions must be set to 480x320 (320x480 for vertical videos). MPEG-4 and H.264 should be used as the container and codec. In other words, the tool supports HD (720), FullHD (1080) and UHD (2k)* formats. The number of videos you can share has no limits.

Note: the video you are uploading should be converted before sending it to your contact/group/channel.
