Import Video File Size Limit?

Jul 02, 2012

Hi all- I'm working on a project in StoryLine that is set at full resolution for 1080P.  I was able to import two smaller mp4's that were around 200MB each, but now I"m trying to import at 14 min video that is about 2gb. When I try to insert it on the slide, I get a file type error. Is this due to the size? I haven't had trouble with any otehr mp4's. What is the maximum file size for importing an mp4?

Thanks for reaching out, Anthony! 

Apologies, but I'm having trouble finding a case related to this, so I think there was an issue when submitting. If you have a case number, could you share it with me privately here, and I'll do a little more digging!

No case number? No problem! Feel free to resubmit the .mov file using the same link! Either way, someone will reach out shortly after!

The case # is:

Case #02832450: Corrupted File

I didn't send the .MOV, I sent the Storyline file with the .MOV added to it.

So, is there a size limit to movie files? If so, that should be made clear. I've read in one forum that the limit is 2 gigabytes, while another forum says there is no limit...

Improved how Storyline 360 would generate an error after inserting a large video.

To take advantage of this update, launch the Articulate 360 desktop app on your computer and click the Update button next to Storyline 360. You'll find our step-by-step instructions here.
