How can I upload HD videos on DailyMotion?

André P September 30, 2013

Hi everyone!

Today I was trying to upload my first 1080p video to DailyMotion, but unfortunately after the uploaded finish I could only watch it at 480p! Is there any step that I’m doing wrong? I followed all the major rules for uploading videos on DailyMotion. The original video is 970mb in size(aprox), filmed at 1080p 30fps and it’s 15min long. Btw, this is the URL:

I’d appreciate a lot if someone could give me a hand on this!
Thanks in advance :)

    Why Won't Dailymotion Upload My Video
    In order to upload full 1080p hi-definition videos you must have a MotionMaker or Official User Account.
    Users with free accounts can only upload videos with resolutions up to 720p.

      Thanks for your answer! Although that was not the problem. I'm not sure if you know the new rules on DailyMotion, but now you can upload 1080p videos without being a MotionMaker. It just take more time to upload the 1080p quality. The program will start with the standard ones, and the HD will only be available some moments later.
