Downloading your Animoto video

There are lots of ways to share your video online, but you can also download and save your video to your computer.

To download your video:

  1. Click “Download” under the “OPTIONS” section of your video play page
  2. Choose the resolution you’d like and click the MP4 button next to that resolution
  3. Wait for your video to download to your computer


How do I burn my video to a DVD?

The 480p ISO file is available to burn to a regular blank DVD. If you want a higher resolution (720p HD or 1080p HD) you can burn it to a Blu-ray disk or play it on a device that offers MP4 playback, as these resolutions aren't compatible with a regular blank DVD.

Most newer devices (DVD/Blu-ray players, computers, and consoles) can play files from a flash drive, so a simpler option is to save the HD files onto a USB/flash drive instead of burning it to a DVD.

Which video resolution is best?

Video resolution refers to how many pixels are displayed on a screen (i.e. the detail level of a screen). 720p and 1080p are all versions of HD (720p has a pixel dimension of 1280 x 720, and 1080p is even further detailed with a pixel dimension of 1920 x 1080). Each screen will have what’s called its native resolution. For example, an HD TV with a native resolution of 720p will only be able to display video at this resolution and not higher. So if a 1080p video is received it will be downscaled to fit on the screen.

If your screen’s native resolution is 1080p, we recommend using the 1080p file for the best possible quality.
