Dear All,

I’m new to VH, my first item just approved 2 days ago, and I have a question:
which dimension you prefer for the preview FLV (640×360, 960×540 or 720×480)?

Also, I’m not sure why only 640×360 preview has playback control?

Thank you :)

@Art 101, it all depends of what you like. I like 640×360, because I think for most of the buyers it’s easier to preview that size, and it’s faster to stream. :)

agreed 640×360 seems to work best for me.

I’m also a 640×360 fan, not only for my own previews… but to look at too.

it hurts sales to have different sizes, I’d go with the large or medium one and make that a standard for everyone. it drives me nuts to have different preview video sizes, what’s the benefit in that? confuses customer, not ergonomically sensible… scanning thru projects I see one with an itty bitty preview, and the next with a big preview, I’d be more likely to buy one w/big preview… that doesn’t make sense to allow… I’d standardize previews, they should be the same size for all projects here, imho.

960×540 looks better for me couse it`s a proportional downscale from 1280×720 with minimal lowering of quality

but i face a bugs with viewering this on 15 inch notebooks. Videohive has bad presentation of preview with such scale so preview is cropped. Bad one!

960×540 is a downscale from 1920×1080 (half size in both dimensions)

640×360 is a downscale from 1280×720 (half size in both dimensions)

Just wanted to clear that up. :)
