Special Note: Videos that you upload through your PC must have a length within 10 minutes and a resolution of 720 x 1280p. Also, the video format should be MP4 or WebM, and the size should be less than 2GB. If your video does not meet these requirements, you should compress or convert the video using a video converter.
