We both know why you’re here. Somewhere along the way, you ran into some trouble while uploading a video file in SCORM Cloud. Now, before we provide you with some helpful tips and tricks to work around these problems, there’s something we would like you to know. Digital video is a tricky beast. Digital video has several different file formats and codecs, making it difficult for us to support all of them. As of now, we support several formats (.flv, .mov, .mp4., .m4v, .f4v) and the h.264 codec. If you run into a problem uploading/converting a video, we will do our best to help diagnose your problem and provide a solution.
Here are some things that could be causing problems for you:
- Bandwidth – Big files require big pipes. You may experience long upload times if you have low bandwidth.
- Supported Browsers – We support all modern browser types. If you are experiencing a problem with your browser, you may need to upgrade to a more modern version.
- File Size – Is your file bigger than 100MB? Check out Handbrake or MPEG Streamclip for help compressing your file. To see a tutorial of compressing video with MPEG Streamclip, click here.
- File Format/Codec – There are two things here you need to watch out for here. There are lots of file types out there, and even more codecs. To make things a little less complicated, we’ve decided to support a few different file types such as .flv, .mov, .mp4., .m4v, and .f4v. We also support only one codec, h.264. Need to change formats or codecs? No problem, Handbrake or MPEG Streamclip make converting your file simple.
