It’s no secret that Twitter has great video quality, but that’s finally beginning to change. The corporate has announced a replacement adjustment to its video tech that reduces how pixelated videos look, improving the experience for people that use the platform to catch the newest movie trailers, computer game teasers, and more.
Though some videos looked decent enough on Twitter, others suffered particularly harsh pixelation, counting on the character of the content. This made Twitter a but desirable platform for sharing videos of projects, trailers, and more. During a new tweet, the company’s Twitter Support account said some changes were made.

“Starting today, videos you upload to Twitter will appear less pixelated for a far better watching experience,” the corporate said. Though it didn’t elaborate on these changes in its post, Twitter told The Verge that its video pre-processing system does not split videos into smaller pieces while uploading.
Though Twitter shared a video with its announcement, it doesn’t compare the changes in quality, the extent of which remains unclear. Users have been sharing video clips since the announcement, and that they do appear sharper than before, though you’ll still recover video quality from platforms like YouTube.
The change went survive September 24, consistent with Twitter, though it didn’t support Twitter Media Studio at the time, the corporate told The Verge. Ultimately, this is often a little but welcome change for users who often consume media through Twitter, also as creators who use the platform to showcase their work.
