Want to put some videos up on your website? This will help you ensure your videos are compatible with our Video Player Component. We recommend you use the application, Handbrake (download), a free, open-source application available on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Once you have downloaded, installed, and opened Handbrake, you'll be prompted to select your file.

Click 'open' and Handbrake will analyze the file to determine its codecs, duration and other metadata. Now you'll need to choose the settings you wish to use when you export. In order to work with our video player you must check "Web optimized" and have "H.264" selected as the video codec. The other settings, such as Quality can be set to your preference.
