We recommend the following settings to optimize video quality on the IMDb site:
Depending on the software you're using, some of these options may only be available under the "advanced" settings.
These are recommendations -- other formats may work. If you have video that has already been compressed to another format, you may want to try uploading it as-is before re-encoding to these formats.
Both 16:9 and 4:3 formats are supported. For HD video, we suggest the 16:9 widescreen format for the best quality at 720p and 480p. Note that 16:9 video will be letterboxed when shown in the lower-resolution "standard" view.
At present, demo reels can only be linked to the IMDb page you have claimed through the IMDbPro membership. Demo reels uploaded by an IMDbPro account will show up as related video on the IMDb page associated with that Pro account.
Only an IMDbPro membership that has claimed a page may add demo reels to that page. If a representative has claimed your page on your behalf, they will need to upload the video using the IMDbPro membership they used to claim your IMDb page.
You can designate a primary demo reel that will be shown first in the list of related videos on your IMDb page. To designate your primary demo reel, upload more than one demo reel, then select the "Set as Primary Demo Reel" on the Your Videos page.
If you cancel your membership your demo reels will remain online as content associated with your IMDb page. If you would like to remove your demo reels from your page, you should do so prior to canceling your membership.
At present, only video demo reels can be uploaded. If you have an audio-only reel such as a voiceover demo, we suggest creating a video clip that uses that reel as the associated audio, and an appropriate title or image as the video.
