As applied in Zype, transcoding takes encoded videos, decodes them, and repackages them into varying quality standards, in a Zype-supported format so that it can be made available for streaming.
NOTE: For more details on Zype-supported file formats, see Supported File Formats.
Transcode settings are preset conversion formats that Zype use to make your videos available for viewing on the Web and OTT apps.
For example, if you're uploading a video in 1080p HD TV format, you will want the check the 1080, 720, 480, and 240 options on the Transcoding Settings page. The high, medium, and low options should be determined based on the bitrate of the video you are uploading.
Before uploading or importing content into your Video Library in Zype, you should always review your transcode settings. You cannot apply transcode settings retroactively.
To configure or edit your transcoding presets, follow the steps below.
On the Admin Dashboard, click the Tools menu on the top, then Settings.
On the Settings page, click the VOD Presets tab.
On the Transcoding Settings page, the transcoding presets for your videos are listed. Check the appropriate boxes of your desired settings under the Encoding, Streaming, and Download columns.
Click Save Changes.
NOTE: You can edit transcode settings before the import or upload process to accommodate one-off uploads from videos that require different settings.
