    It's a songwriting contest that we're requiring entrants to record on their smartphones. I'm guessing the files will be  WMV, MP4 and MOV files. What is the max size they can be?

    Yes, you can accept the video files through Jotform. You can specify the maximum file size & extensions in the file upload field properties as shown in the screenshot. Refer to the article to know how to change the file upload size limit Changing-the-File-Upload-Size-Limit and refer to this article to know the allowed file types Upload-Field-Allowed-File-Types 


    The maximum upload size is 1GB through Jotform and 300MB if integrated with Dropbox.

    We do limit file storage based on subscription level. Deleting submissions with file uploads attached will clear up space.  For more information on what each subscription level allows for, see our pricing page:
