Recommended Resolution and Aspect Ratios Using UB Stream

UB Stream uses 16:9 aspect ratio players.

If you are uploading a non-16:9 file, it will be processed and displayed correctly with letterboxes (black bars at the top and bottom) or pillarboxes (black bars on the left and right) provided by the player.

If you want to fit the player perfectly, encode your original file at these resolutions:

  • 2160 p: 3840x2160
  • 1440 p: 2560x1440
  • 1080 p: 1920x1080
  • 720 p: 1280x720
  • 480 p: 854x480
  • 360 p: 640x360
  • 240 p: 426x240
