SUGGESTION: More Format Information For Video Files in Compose Screen

    Just a simple suggestion:

    I tried out the HubPages Video Option last night,

    When selecting upload video, you are told this:

    "Your video should be no larger than 1024MB, and no longer than 25 minutes."

    (which really is true considering how expansive the codec selection is)

    But, the FAQ"s tell a better story

    "What are the minimum requirements for uploading videos on HubPages?
    Acceptable file formats: Almost all popularly-used video codecs used today are supported, in the following formats:

    Maximum file size and length: 1 GB (1024 MB); 25 minutes

    Acceptable aspect ratios: All common aspect ratios are supported, including the popular 16:9 and 4:3"

    I know I had to go look this up as I wouldn't want to submit a video and wait for processing only to get some sort of error.

    I think it would be helpful if the upload capsule contained this information also. It really only matters for the first time user of the video option but I know it caused me a slight hiccup.

    Thanks for the suggestion, sunforged. The next time we have an engineer touch that page, I'll have them add a link to the Learning Center entry. This way, we don't take up a lot of vertical space in the HubTool but you can easily get the reference information.
