Most likely, you use some unsupported video format; or the video container file contains media using one or more of unsupported codecs. Please see:[^],[^],[^],[^].

Practically, you should provide only Ogg Theora or WebM formats with the use of compatible codecs. Please see:[^],[^].

How can you do this if your available format is different? You can use different software project to remaster the video you already have, but I would strongly recommend FFmpeg or libavcodec utility. Please see:[^],[^],[^],[^].

In both cases, you can get free open-source utilities which can make nearly everything.

The selection of good sets of encoding parameters to provide a reasonable trade-off between size of the file and quality is a separate song. You may need to experiment for a while and read some practical recommendation to gain enough experience.

Good luck,
