How to upload HD content on Dailymotion?

Hello there!

I’m asking this question here at MUO since I believe I’ll get quicker a answer than asking Dailymotion itself.

Anyway, I’m trying to upload HD videos on Dailymotion. The video size is in HD format (720p) and I have tried with 1080p (I know you must be a motion maker to upload 1080p) and nothing works. No video is uploaded in HD. After uploading they get encoded to 480p format (or maybe 320p..) and the quality is damn bad!

I don’t know if anyone uses Dailymotion, or has any suggestions but I would be very happy if someone gave me some suggestions about how to get this working!

Thanks in advance! :)

    Problem solved! I had to change the option in my personal info, that my location was in the United States, and I could upload a HD video!

    just log onto upload the video


    Before sending a video, check that it does not exceed :
    - 60 minutes in length
    - 2 Gb in size
    - A resolution of HD 720p (1280x720)

    to remove the following restrictions u have to sign up for
    in order to upload HD 1080p.

    if you have doubts visit there FAQ's

    hope it helps u!!

      You think I'm that fool, and I don't know this basic things! I have read the upload instructions in dailymotion! But this is not a normal bug.. Also, take your time to read my question description, and not only the question...

    Visit the link below to know the problems that occurs in uploading a video in Dailymotion -

    The reason that your video quality is less as stated by Wikipedia is that -

    "the site supports video content that can play at 720p on a HD set, but the bit rate is significantly less than the 5–9 megabits for expected HD quality."

      I read the article from the link you showed me! My video format is in mkv. I will try to mux it in mp4 and see if it works! If so, I will mark this question as solved!
      Anyway, thanks for your comment! :)
