I've been unable to find succinct details on the acceptable/required video formats used by Rise. We'll be streaming content from Rise Storage, and our videographer needs details so he can do the encoding before I publish the files. I'd rather he do the work than I. We're pushing videos at full HD onto newly-purchased Rise Intel ComputeSticks. I've searched the fora, but there is not a precise listing of video types & configurations.

Hey Derek,

.mp4 encoded in H.264 format will work. Have been using same.

Wow, Scott and Prakash are wicked fast, and thank you for those answers!

Derek, the required formats are MP4 and WebM, with a strong recommendation of WebM. We have a whole forum conversation that discusses video converting here if you are interested.

Thanks!

Thanks, all. The link to video converting is helpful, if convoluted. :-)

In my opinion, when it comes to video, it's easy for everything to get convoluted :)

For what it's worth, I use the standard settings in VLC to convert videos to WebM. They play from Rise Vision storage without a hitch.
