Does MyHeritage rerender uploaded videos ?
Scott Brownlie
- Close

I've uploaded a video I've encoded to mp4 and looks nice and clear.

However after publishing it playback on my family site is not as good. The transitions get a lot of blocking in it. A screenshot comparison of the source video and the  online video can be viewed here http://i.imgur.com/IfLU1.jpg

Does MyHeritage 'reencode' the video that is uploaded ?

Just trying to pinpoint the drop in quality.

Hi Scott,

Thank you for writing to us.

You're right, we reduce video quality when uploading videos to the site.

Our developers are working on improving this issue, so I will update you regarding this matter.

Kind Regards,

Hmmmm, this is a shame.

Firstly, I'm paying for extra space so there should at least be an option to not have video file size reduced.

Transcoding video for members utilising a free account I totally accept, but not those paying for their space.

Also, there is a 50MB size limit for videos, both mine were 25MB each or less, if I recall correctly. Why resize these ? Perhaps just do those that exceed the 50MB allowance.

I hope the option is considered to leave content untouched. Transcoding already heavily compressed video is never the ideal solution which is why I always start with the post edit DV output when creating videos for upload.

Thank you.
