Encoding Quality Help
When you save your video you can choose the quality of the encoded video with the “Quality” menu. You can choose by the following options: HQTV, HDReady, HDFull, HDTV.
The platform can automatically detect the original video resolution (height & width) and will suggest to you the best profile quality for your video; if you want you can switch from different profiles be careful when you choose and submit your encoding profile you cannot turn back, unless you re-upload the video. The list of available profiles are:
Lowest: 320 width 240 height at 350Kbps. Medium: 640 width 360 height at 500Kbps. Highest: 858 width 480 height at 650Kbps.
Lowest: 320 width 240 height at 350Kbps. Medium: 640 width 360 height at 500Kbps. Highest: 1280 width 720 height at 1500Kbps.
Lowest: 320 width 240 height at 350Kbps. Medium: 640 width 360 height at 500Kbps. Highest: 1920 width 1080 height at 2000Kbps.
Lowest: 320 width 240 height at 350Kbps. Medium: 640 width 360 height at 500Kbps. Medium(2): 858 width 480 height at 650Kbps. Highest: 1280 width 720 height at 1500Kbps. Highest(2): 1920 width 1080 height at 2000Kbps.
The 240p lowest video encoding profile is always available for mobile and/or metered connections, or in situations when bandwidth is most important than other things. The 360p is considered the low quality profile. The 480p is called TV quality profile. 720p and 1080p is for video HD ready and/or full.
Auto-Quality 240p+360p+480p+720p+1080p+[same as original] (activated only for high bitrate videos)
The Auto-Quality profile is designed for the users who want to preserve the same aspect ratio and quality of the original file; the system can know the quality settings of the original file and encoding the video at the same quality. The bitrate for this profile are the following: Resolution: Width = Same as the original file, Height = Same as the original file Codec = h264 Video BitRate = Same as the original file Audio BitRate = 128 kbit/s Please note: Auto-Quality may cause freeze or waste users bandwidth if you encode a very high quality video or resolution (like a bitrate over 1500Kbps); if you don’t know how your original videos are encoded, please chose any other profile quality listed instead of Auto-Quality
A digital watermark is a kind of marker covertly embedded in a noise-tolerant signal such as an audio, video or image data. It is typically used to identify ownership of the copyright of such signal. “Watermarking” is the process of hiding digital information in a carrier signal; the hidden information should, but does not need to, contain a relation to the carrier signal. Digital watermarks may be used to verify the authenticity or integrity of the carrier signal or to show the identity of its owners. It is prominently used for tracing copyright infringements and for banknote authentication. When you impress the Digital Watermark inside your content, there’s no way to remove it.
The encoding is important to let the viewers watch the videos without lags or buffering; the most you want quality and the most the loading of the video is slow. This factor depending on the connection speed of the viewer. Once selected, you cannot turn back and choose another quality. These options depends on the original video resolution.
The thumbnail is created automatically with the first frame of the original video (at 1 second); you can change the thumbnail whenever you want after the encoding, in the “edit content informations” page.
