How to export your videos

Before you can upload your course videos to Udemy, you’ll need to ensure you export them in HD quality. Recording the video with HD settings is not enough. You will need to export the video with the correct settings to maintain HD.

The right export settings

A very common issue with videos is that they appear blurry, even after being recorded in HD. This happens because your computer compresses the video file to make it smaller, which degrades the video quality. Even videos that are recorded in HD will lose their HD when they are exported without the correct settings.

Make sure the export settings in your recording software are set at the appropriate resolution at or above 720p HD in order to export your videos in HD. 720p format has a resolution of 1280×720 and an aspect ratio of 16:9.
