Hi Mike

I got a video up and running on Incline and it looks pretty good. The file size is 7MB though and I have read elsewhere that it should be under 3? Can you give me any recommendations on how big the file should be? It's a 17 sec clip and I compressed it further but, the quality is not good under 3MB. Even at 7mB it's a bit sketchy but ok.

Also, is there any way to stop the video from looping and just have it stay at the end point with that graphic on the screen? Finally, I could make the clip longer, but then I will end up with a really large file size. Any suggestions would be great!


Cheers

Hello,

7mb is probably fine, it's really up to you. It should be fine though because it does stream. You don't want it too pixelated either, so if the gets too bad under 7mb then just leave it.

If you want to take the loop off you have to modify the template's index.php file and search for "loop="loop" " and remove that.
