So, what types of videos are best to upload to Piñata Farms?

Great question! We have a few tips & tricks for making sure your video is the highest quality possible and that it looks great in the app:

  • Make sure the video you're uploading is above 240p resolution! Generally, the higher the resolution of the video you are uploading, the better it will look in Piñata Farms.

    • We also recommend that you make sure the resolution is highest for videos with a larger aspect ratio.
  • Videos with smaller text look best in app (instead of large text) so keep that in mind when finding your next video to request!

  • We also suggest uploading a video with the original link, as opposed to a screen recording or a recording of another device. The video loses quality when it's re-recorded or re-uploaded.

  • Finally, we encourage you to submit original videos that can become great memes!
