Is IMDb supports movie trailers in asset form like mp4 rather giving youtube link

Normally we get Trailer videos directly from site like youtube, is it possible to get them in asset form eg mp4 which we can play directly on our player.

    • "iso_639_1":"en",
    • "iso_3166_1":"US",
    • "name":"Interstellar Movie - Official Trailer 3",
    • "key":"0vxOhd4qlnA",
    • "published_at":"2014-10-01T21:37:54.000Z",
    • "site":"YouTube",
    • "size":1080,
    • "type":"Trailer",
    • "official":false,
    • "id":"57817accc3a368592500392e"
    },
  1. {
    • "iso_639_1":"en",
    • "iso_3166_1":"US",
    • "name":"Interstellar – Trailer 4 – Official Warner Bros.",
    • "key":"LY19rHKAaAg",

Hi tosaurabhsri -

Yes, we do support MP4 videos, while other formats may work we recommend the following settings to optimize video quality on the IMDb site:

  • File Format: MP4, WMV, AVI or Quicktime
  • Codec: H.264 / AAC, or WMV3 / AAC
  • Resolution: 640x480 for SD, 1280x720 for HD
  • FPS: 30 frames per second
  • Video Bitrate: 2000 kbits/sec for SD 4:3, 5000 kbits/sec for HD
  • Audio: 320 kbps / 44.100 kHz
  • Deinterlacing: On
  • Size: Up to 500 MB
  • Length: 10 minutes or less

As an additional tip, if you have a video that has already been compressed to another format, you may want to try uploading it as-is before re-encoding to these formats.

I hope this information helps!
