When users upload a video file to Studio the system transcodes the file and optimizes it for the web and our streaming platform. This happens in the background automatically. Optimizing the file for playback on the web helps avoid hiccups caused by higher-resolution files meant to be played on larger screens. So, we have added a visual indicator to uploaded files so that our Hosts know when they can add that video to the stage and enjoy seamless playback.
Additionally, users are now allowed to retry the transcoding process if any errors occur. Which, is most often caused by errors in the files encoding or bad meta data.
Note: Our transcoding process will only downscale videos that are of higher resolution than 1080p. All others will maintain their original resolutions.
