For those events that are virtuals, instead of uploading music, you will have to upload a video of the performance. Much like music uploads, video upload deadlines are not the same as the registration deadline so there will be extra time to gather and capture video files.
On average a 2-minute to 3-minute video file size should fall between 240 to 700 MB. If the video file sizes are between 800 MB to 2 GB, you have likely recorded the video at 4K resolution or using ultra-high camera settings. 4K resolution files are not ideal for uploading or playback on the web. In addition, if you have a large number of entries combined with large file sizes, you will find uploading slow and time-consuming. Note that files beyond 2 GB are not accepted on the DanceBUG website.
