Not sure it's the right place to ask but...

could we have the Jetpack application (on Android at least) include the Publitio plugin?

At this time it's difficult to add a video from a smartphone because the Publitio plugin is not recognized by Jetpack.

Hi

we're not familiar with Jetpack and it's eco system :(

our developers will check if our wordpress plugins can be ported to it

Hi. I want to upload about 100Gb of really low-quality content - videos recorded 10-15 years ago using VHS cameras or mobile phones (usually 480p, but most of the videos are 360p and a few 720p).

Because there are around 800 video files, I want to keep the file size as low as possible.

Already tried multiple ways to optimize the size:
- Disabled Eager transformations
- removed the unneeded file versions (I don't need 480p for videos which are 360p, I want to keep one version of the video)

When I play the video the deleted resolutions still show up in the player and when I click on them it shows an error message: "Oops... we're having trouble playing this video"

How can I solve this issue? I want a single resolution for my videos, and I don't want to show the video resolutions which are already removed. Honestly, the quality difference between 360p and 480p videos is negligible in my case (360p is as blurry as 480p). Thank you!

Hi

you can control which resolutions are generated here https://publit.io/dashboard/settings/api

enable Eager Transformations, but keep only thumb/poster/360p ON and player will render 360p quality only

On YouTube Plus, if you are playing a video and then close down the app, it saves your spot so you can come back to the same time marker. Is this feature offered in Publitio?

Hi. Not yet, as something like this would require cookies to be set from our side, and lot of customers/users do not want this because of data tracking and gdpr bs

What are url based transformations?

Publitio offers a URL-based form of API through which you can do all file transformations on the fly, just over the browser, by changing parameters in the file URL. You can use it to transcode your files between formats, for resizing, cropping, trimming, watermarking and/or quality adjustment. More info here https://publit.io/docs/#url-based-transformations

To use DLP (Domain Level Protection) please list all domain (and sub-domain) you use, for example:
www.yousite.com
yoursite.com
www.blog.yoursite.com
blog.yoursite.com
staging.yoursite.com
www.staging.yoursite.com
dev.yoursite.com
www.dev.yoursite.com

then simply turn ON DLP option (and please allow up to 30 minutes for changes to propagate on all servers, till local cache is cleared)

11 months ago watermark and hls

Hello if I add a watermark, I can not add a hls protection on my video. Is it normal?
Thanks

No, watermarks should work with HLS. Best is to apply watermark + hls option during the upload, as already processed versions will need to be recreated if you add watermark later via edit

when uploading image with publitio says this

"success":false,"code":403,"error":"message":"Only image, video & audio files allowed tmp"

Hi. Your file is in tmp extension, so our system can't detect it properly. Upload image/video with proper allowed extension as per https://publit.io/docs/#create-file

When I upload a video file, it creates the version I need which is the HLS version. As I don't need the original file stored for downloads or playback, how can I delete it to save on my storage space? If this is not possible, can it be made possible? It is a significant amount of storage space being wasted.

Hi Rachan. We're considering adding this functionality. For now original are used/needed for any future transformations/download/etc

Hi. I am trying to balance quality and size. I have videos with no significant movement which look fine. The videos with cars driving are very pixilated at lower bitrates.

I've used 2Pass VBR which keeps the file size low but improves the moving parts significantly on the PC... but once uploaded, embedded into learndash and played back, they look pixilated again.

Anyone know if Publitio applies some sort of compression or if there's a setting I need to change or use? Any help gratefully received. Thanks. ..Jon

Hi Jon
If you upload mp4 video (with moovatom at the beggining, so it is streamable), publitio will not re-encode video and you can use direct mp4 video link for streaming with original quality). hope this helps
