whatever video quality you upload they will convert it on server. The player doesn’t play the version you’ve uploaded but the automatically converted version created by the server.

Make sure your bit rate is set to a minimum of 3,000kbps. You might have to experiment with higher bit rates depending on the level of color and detail in the video. Sometimes 5,000-6,000kbps is necessary, but try a few things to see what comes out best for you.

Do you have an example of the problem you’re experiencing?

You mean, we can render h.264 with minimum 3,000kbps? because according to my memory I saw somewhere in here It says maximum bit rate of h.264 is 2,000kbps.

3Dym, no 3000 is min. Personally I prefere to render previews at 5000-7000 kbps.

cryvfx, you probably had flv preview which was automatially reencoded to h.264 when Envato migrated to the new player. If you don’t like result I guess you need to encode your original video output to mp4/h.264 preview again by yourself and reupload it to update your item, to make sure you have online what you did.

I updated one of my project preview video yesterday( to .h264 mp4 file). File size was 44 mb but I realized after the preview file is online file size dropped to 6 mb. I did not understand why it changed, do you know if they convert our original preview file before it goes online ?

yes they do. is what I was saying in the beginning of the thread. even if you upload an mp4 it will still be converted on server. probably the file you upload will be discarded

why? converting an already-compressed h.264 file will always lower quality. Why don’t let the author decide what bandwith they want their preview to stream with, like in the old flv-times?
