But many users are facing the Twitter video upload failure problem regularly, receiving the notification like "Your video file is not compatible".

If you are also one member who feel annoyed by receiving this kind of Twitter video upload failure messages, you probably need to review the video requirements that Twitter supports. So in the blog today, I would like to get you through them and also show you the way to deal with different situations when you can't upload Twitter video. Let's begin!

It should be noted again that Video Converter Ultimate can help to solve the situations that Twitter video doesn't meet the upload standard. In the following, I will show you in details. 

Situation 1. The video duration exceeds the maximum 

The most common reason causing the Twitter video upload failure issue contributes to that you are not familiar with the duration limitation set by Twitter.

Go to Clip Function

STEP 3. Please clip the video into the duration that is supported by Twitter (which should be under 2 minutes and 20 seconds). When you have done, click OK to save the change.
