Working with video formats can be a minefield, whether you're producing video as part of your creative business or simply trying to watch a downloaded video on a platform that refuses to play ball. Choosing the wrong type of video format might mean that that your TV, tablet or phone simply doesn't want to know about it, and it can also cause problems if you're producing video content for a client and their systems can't cope with it.

It doesn't help that there are any number of file formats that you can choose and a similarly bewildering choice of video codecs. Pick the wrong combination, and you could end up with something that works for you but won't play for anyone else, or you could unwittingly produce an enormous file that takes ages to download or is too big for your preferred file transfer service. So if you want to ensure that as many people as possible can see your video or download your latest showreel, it pays to get the video format right.
