It looks like your video is currently displaying in 1080p.

Amber, if your source video has black bars around it then the actual video itself is not 1080p, it is in fact a lower resolution video that someone has re-encoded at 1080 and the bars have been added to fill out the extra pixels between what your video is, and the 1920x1080 pixels that make up HD video.

vimeo will play back this video

Hi there,

First go here and check off the option to save your source files: (We need your source file in order to re-convert at 1080p)

Then, go here and use the "Replace" option to re-upload your video:

Then, once the file has been replaced, you'll be able to select the 1080p option and upgrade the file from the same place.

you cannot have the 1080 option if your source video (the one you upload to vimeo) is not 1080.

Interesting, going to try that now. May I ask why I have to double upload to get the conversion?

Because you uploaded it at 720p. You need to upload 1080p source.
