- What is the facebook maximum video size?
Facebook allows uploading a video with maximum size and time length of 1.75GB and 45 minutes respectively. In case, if you wish to go beyond 1gig video, then 1080HD upload must be limited to a maximum of 8Mbps and for a file with 720HD, 4Mbps is the maximum bitrate.

If you have a video file to be shared on Facebook that is larger in size than the supported limit, resizing video for Facebook is an ideal solution. There are a number of software available to compress the video files and here we recommend UniConverter.
