You can upload up to 50 images, videos or GIFs and up to 8 documents in each post, either from your mobile phone or desktop. (Please note - you can only upload documents to Streams using the web app)
Here's how you do it:
- Compose your post
- Attach an image or video by clicking on "Photo / Video" at the bottom of the compose box and select a file to upload
- Once the upload is completed, click on the button to create the post
Note: Once the post is created, attached videos are processed to enable optimal playback on all devices. The post is grayed out and only visible to you during this stage. When the processing is finished, the post gets published automatically and you will get a notification. If you add a video to an existing post, the post stays visible and the video will show "processing" until video processing is finished.
The maximum size for a document, image or video is the same for both posts and chats:
- Images: 10 MB
- Documents: 250 MB
- GIFs: 5 MB
- Members: 500 MB
- Admins: 2 GB (for Global Admins and Stream Admins if posting in a stream that they are an admin for)
Note: GIFs which are larger than 5MB will not not show any animation/movement and will appear as a photo.
Beekeeper will attempt to crop an image to a square based on the shortest dimension of the photo, whether that is the height or the width. If you do not want your image to be cropped, please upload a square format.
Images with a higher resolution than 700 x 700 pixels work best.
We support many popular video formats such as MP4, MOV and AVI. If you're unsure if your video format is supported, don't hesitate to try it out. MP4 files using H.264 video and AAC audio will be supported in most cases.
To enable optimal playback and compatibility on all devices, we process the uploaded video and store it in multiple variants. As long your video can be processed, everybody who can see the video will be able to play it.
