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?

probably because we are too generous with the bits quantity :D

or maybe to ensure good playback on mobile devices?

Ohh, that is bad if they reencode previews. Better approach would be to set maximum allowed bit rate then so author can encode the best within limits.

I’d like to push this thread up, as I think there should be an opton of not reencoding our previews when they are within the bandwith limits (or let the user choose quality).

yeap, my last item preview doesn’t look to good. :(

not wanted to do the smart guy in the room again, have enough of this, but when major changes like this are implemented MAYBE do a poll or something for the authors, ask us what we think.

I agree. Why compress an already compressed file. Isn’t it better, user to do this once, within given bitrate limits?

FLV is very small size compare with other formats so why down convert it again from videohive system.

when it down convert get it poor quality.I hope it is not good image for our product.

some time buyer may be think it is not good quality.Every time my preview bit rate is 10000kbps.

but after down convert it is come bad quality.it is mean lost smooth rendering look.

some area pixel also jumping some times.

Actually it is my request only.if you can do something.

Thank x.
