The settings we use to process your videos can be found at the Encoding Settings page. In most cases, you won’t have to change anything on this page. Changes you do make will only affect future video uploads.
We allow you to change the bit rate settings for each type of file we make. Lower bit rates load faster for the user and use less bandwidth at the cost of video quality, while higher settings look better, but use more bandwidth. Our defaults in most cases provide a good balance.
