Video Buffering - Speed

Making sure this is being done correctly...we have roughly 7 different videos running in a loop on a presentation. The video sizes range from 122MB to 196MB and are in our Rise Vision storage. They run fine but buffer quite a bit causing a lot of delays. Is there a way to compress this files to make them run smoother or any other methods?

Steve,

What kinds of videos are they? If they are not WebM, I would recommend converting to WebM, as most users have the greatest success with those.

Another thing to look at is the CPU and Memory on the Display as the videos are running. If it is super high, that may be the reason for poor playback.

I hope that helps!

As it so happens, we have an entire thread dedicated to video conversion! 

Check it out here: https://community.risevision.com/rise_vision_inc/topics/community-thread-converting-video

My personal preference is firefogg because it is so simple, but there are a lot mentioned in there.

I hope that helps!

If by any chance you have an access to Adobe CC, then the Media Encoder App is an awesome tool.
