Why Is My Video Not Uploading to Canva?

When you are creating a video, you want to be sure that it will make it onto the platform where you wish to share it. Canva is a great tool for this, but sometimes your video may not upload correctly. The most common reasons for this are either file size or format incompatibility.

File size is an important factor when trying to upload a video to Canva. If your video is too large, the platform will not be able to accept it.

Canva has a strict limit on the maximum file size of videos that can be uploaded; if yours is larger than this limit, then you will need to reduce its size before attempting to upload again. You can do this by using video editing software or online tools.

The second reason why your video might not be uploading is because of incompatibility between the format of the video and Canva’s requirements. If your file type is not supported by Canva, then you will need to convert it into a compatible format before attempting the upload again. There are various free tools available online that allow you to convert between different file types.

Finally, if none of these solutions work, then it may be worth checking with Canva’s support team directly. They will be able to provide more specific help based on your particular situation and assist in troubleshooting any other issues that may be preventing the upload from working correctly.


It can be frustrating when your video does not upload successfully onto Canva.

However, understanding why this might have happened – whether due to file size or incompatible formats – can help you take steps towards resolving the issue and getting your video uploaded as soon as possible!
