File Formats

Europeana seeks to reach the widest possible audience across Europe and the world. As a result, the ideal file formats in which to publish material accessed via Europeana are those formats which have the widest support:

  • Jpeg, GIF and PNG for images
  • PDF for text/image combinations
  • Plain ASCII for text
  • MP3 for music
  • MPEG and AVI for video

However, we don't suggest that you rebuild or otherwise change your content for Europeana, unless it also meets a broader strategic aim for your organisation.
