Is There a Google Drive Video Size Limit? What’s the Google Drive Playback Limit?

In fact, there is no size restriction for Google Drive video upload. But for all individual users, the max file size that can be uploaded per day is 750 GB. Also depending on how much storage your account has, you may upload as big a video as your storage size. For example, Frontline users can only upload a 2 GB video, whereas Business Starter can upload a video of 30 GB. You can store videos up to 5 TB if you have a Business Plus account.

However, we do not suggest uploading too large a video file to Google Drive because the Google Drive video playback limit does exist. You may experience a long processing time when playing a large video on Google Drive. In addition, Google Drive has restrictions on video formats and resolutions. While you can upload a video of any format, only limited formats can be played back on Google Drive. Moreover, videos with a resolution higher than 1080p (1920 x 1080) cannot be opened on Google Drive, either.

In a nutshell, Google Drive does not have a video file size limit. But there is a video playback limit that you can’t properly play a video if it is too large or in the wrong format and resolution. If you are looking for a solution to fast upload and play video on Google Drive, you can follow the next part to learn an easy and free way to convert video to the best Google Drive specs. Read on if you are interested.
