Providing videos in multiple formats

In This Guide

Depending on your target audience, you may need to distribute videos in a variety of formats. For example, you may want to offer visitors two versions of the same video: a low-fidelity version at 50 Mbps and a high-fidelity version at 100 Mbps. Similarly, you may want to offer the same video with different resolutions, one at 1280×720 and another at 1960×1080.

Depending on your version of Brightspot, you can upload videos and automatically convert them to a variety of formats. Contact your Brightspot administrator to determine which target formats are available.

To provide a video in multiple formats:

  1. Create a new video as described in Submitting a video to AWS Elemental.
  2. Toward the right of the widget, select more_horiz > Advanced.
  3. Under Output Settings, expand Media Convert.

  4. From the Transcoding Settings selection field, select one of the available settings, or click search to create one-off settings for this conversion. For information about configuring transcoding settings, see Configuring MediaConvert.
  5. Complete the remainder of the form.
  6. Complete your site’s workflow and publish the video.

When the conversion is complete, Brightspot lists the different formats under more_horiz > Outputs.
