In the Video On Demand section, you can adjust the quality settings for the encoder based on the media input profile of the uploaded clip. Use the drop-down boxes to change the output profile used for the best, high, and low quality versions of streaming clips.

Output video qualities that can be selected are:

  • 1080p
  • 720p
  • 480p
  • 360p
  • 240p

By default, audio files use a 128K profile for the high quality version and a 44K profile for the low quality transcoding.

You can uncheck the box for a output profile, such as low-quality versions of HD input files, so that this version of the clip is not produced during the encoding process. This saves disk space and encoding time.

Screen Capture Options

The Screen Capture quality options are used for setting the encoding qualities of files that are encoded from the MEDIALecture screen capture application.

  • Best Quality — When using MEDIALecture, encoding of the screen recording is done on the fly on the client machine running the application. The best quality version is therefore passed through to MEDIAL, meaning that no additional transcoding is necessary. The best quality version of the file is available in MEDIAL immediately after it has been ingested.
  • Other Qualities — The other qualities are configured in the same way as for video on demand. Use the drop-down boxes to select a different quality for a version of the encoding. Uncheck a check box to specify that a particular output profile is not encoded.
