DeakinAir accepts all common video, audio and image formats in all resolutions. For best results with video, we recommend preparing videos in 1280x720 pixels and using the H.264 video codec at about 4000 kb/s. The file upload limit is 2GB. For optimal end-user experience you might like to consider a maximum of 20 min videos. If necessary, playlists can easily be created to segment longer video sequences or group similar subject matter.
Check the recommended file format above. If your video is not using the correct codec, use software such as Handbrake to re-encode. If you're uploading a huge file, please ensure that you've a good Internet connection. Best end-user experience will be on-campus via wired network or off-campus via ADSL.
