  2. Click the Copy link next to the creative header.

File size limits

The file size limit for most creative assets (images, audio, HTML, CSS, data files, JavaScript, etc.) is 10 MB.

Video files are limited to 100 MB for upload and 60 MB for serving (except OGV files, which are limited to 10 MB). If your assets are larger than this limit, contact support for help, or your videos may not serve. Large video files may need to be hosted differently to ensure optimal performance.
