Facebook settings?

Post by cakebaking23 » Fri Nov 09, 2018 2:48 pm

Description of problem or question:
What settings should I use for a high res video that I'd like to reduce the file size and put on facebook?

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
I tried the web optimised legacy iPad, and it looked ok on my Mac...but when I uploaded it to Facebook, FB did something to it and it looked blurry.
From a little search on the internet it seems that FB prefers 1280px wide and divisible by 16px. I'm not sure how to do that in Handbrake. I think there are also file size limits.

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Mac OSX High Sierra

HandBrake Activity Log ***required*** (see How-to get an activity log)

Code: Select all
