If you used the Website Builder® video feature, you can convert your video files to .flv files to increase compatibility among browsers and decrease file size. After you convert and upload a video, you can add it to your website.

NOTE: You must have a Deluxe or Premium Website Builder account running on a Windows® operating system to convert your videos. Conversion is not compatible with Chrome or Safari® browsers, FireFox 3.6 or Mac OS®.

Website Builder supports the file formats 3g2, .3gp, .3gpp, .asf, .asx, .avi, .flv, .m2t, .m2ts, .m2v, .m4v, .mov, .mp4, .mpg, .mpeg, .rm, .vob, and .wmv.
