Video files too big

When students are waiting for a long time for your video file to start, this is usually due to the file size of your video file. From experience we know this is often the case.

Therefore, it is good practice to minimise your file size and to upload it in the right video resolution. Then your students do not have to wait so long for downloading.

Video convertor Handbake

We prefer to use the popular and free application Handbrake (link). 

With this application we reduce the file sizes considerably, whilst keeping the quality at a good level. 

Handbrake open source video transcoder

The settings that always work good for us are:

  • Select from Presets the option “Very Fast 576p25”
  • Tab option “Web Optimised”
