Please note that this article is for Video Professionals and Advanced Users only. If you are not an experienced Video Professional, we strongly recommend that you refrain from creating your own Encoding Profiles, as you may end up creating really bad ones that could result in a lousy viewing experience.
Streamio’s Encoding Platform allows you to create your own transcodings to meet your specific needs. By creating your own Encoding Profiles, our Encoding Platform will be given specific technical instructions on how you want your transcodings to be encoded.
To create your own Encoding Profiles, go to “ACCOUNT SETTINGS” and then on to “Encoding Settings“.
Once you arrive to the “Encoding Settings” section, you will find a list of all Encoding Profiles available on your account:
To create a new Encoding Profile, click “Add Encoding Profile“:
To create a new Encoding Profile, follow these simple steps:
1) Give your Encoding Profile a Title.
2) Specify the values for each of the following parameters
|Video Bitrate |
(50 – 3 000 kbps)
|Unit: Kilobit per second (Kbps). This refers to the amount of data that describes each second of video – the higher the value, the better the quality. Please note, however, that the video quality in a transcoding can never be of a higher quality than what the original file you uploaded will allow for.|
|Audio Bitrate |
(16 – 320 kbps)
|Unit: Kilobit per second (Kbps). This refers to the amount of data that describes each second of the audio track – the higher the value, the better the quality. Please note, however, that the sound quality in a transcoding can never be of a higher quality than what the original file you uploaded will allow for.|
|Frame Rate |
(1 – 30 FPS)
|Unit: Frames Per Second (FPS). The number of pictures per second in a video – the lower the number, the poorer the quality. We strongly recommend that you use the same Frame Rate as in the original file.|
|Audio Sample Rate |
(11 025 – 48 000 Hz)
|Unit: Hertz (Hz) per second. The amount of samples of the audio track each second. Each storage media (CD, DVD, Radio etc) have their own recommended settings. In general, though, the higher the value, the better the quality.|
|Audio Channels||Stereo or Mono|
|Width in pixels||The desired proportion of the movie, specified in pixels (px). Height will be automatically adjusted.|
If you want, you can associate one or more Tags to your new Encoding Profile.
Byclicking the checkbox on your right, you can also include your new Encoding Profile to your “Account Encoding Settings“.
To finish, simply click on “Create Encoding Profile” and you’re done!
Your new Encoding Profile will be added to the list of available Encoding Profiles on your account.
