The system can automatically detect the original video resolution (height & width) and will suggest to you the best profile quality for your video as default; if you want you can switch from different profiles but be careful when you choose and submit your encoding profile you cannot turn back, unless you re-upload-[Upload]: [the action by a owners of the network of sending an image or audio or video file (named as content) from the device] the video; we recommend that you stick with the profile suggested at the beginning. The list of available profiles are:
With the advent of new encoders (read here for more information) we are able to convert video files up to 8k resolution with excellent quality. The video files are encoded twice to ensure compatibility with the major browsers and applications on the market: with the new AV1 codec and with the VP9 codec. The 4k or 8k profile is under testing. The various resolutions currently available are listed below:
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.

The audio of a video file will be encoded with AAC (mp3) codecs at the same bitrate chosen for “quality”. The audio-only files will be transcoded in a blank video file with AAC codec (mp3) at the same bitrate chosen for “quality”; you can upload an image (after the conversion is finished) as the cover of the video (the video can be ignored inside the player and only the cover will be visible).
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 process of re-encoding an audio/video is called “transcoding”.
The thumbnail is created automatically with the first frame of the original video (at first seconds); you can change the thumbnail whenever you want after the encoding, in the “edit content informations” page.
