    Hey Anu,


    By default only a .wmv is considered to be a valid (uploadable) video format. To change that, go to Settings >> Advanced >> Libraries >> Videos.

    On there you can change the AllowedExensionsSettings.  (@Telerik that's your typo, not mine)
    For instance to add MP4 support change it to: .wmv,.mp4

    There aren't any restrictions to video size, only those you set on a library on which you upload the video to. And those are strictly file size limitations (Max library size and Max individual file size).

    ---
    Although its a Silverlight based video player (and supports all the silverlight video formats) currently only .wmv is fully supported inside Sitefinity, meaning for an .mp4 you won't get a thumbnail in the backend. Also when selecting the video with the videoplayer widget, you'll just see a white space (since there isn't a thumbnail) but it plays perfectly.

    If you've got suggestions, feel free to add them to this: A new media library thread on the suggestion forum.

    Hi Anu W,

    As Jochem said, Sitefinity supports the .wmv format by default, however you go and add other but you will not see the thumbnail as explained in the previous post.

    If you want to change the upload file size for the media modules you can set the following settings in your webconfig:

    add before the opening <system.web> tag:

    <system.webServer>
       <security>
         <requestFiltering>
           <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="1024000000"/>
         </requestFiltering>
       </security>
     </system.webServer>

    @Jochem - thanks for the typo!

    All the best,
