When using videos in Maglr, we usually only recommend one format of video to use.
We recommend using the MP4 format of video, this format allows for flexibility in settings of quality, but also maintains a good file size for usage in many situations. MP4 is universally good for many situations, If you have created a video yourself and wondering what type of format, we say MP4 because it's easy to use and such platforms as YouTube also recommend it when uploading videos, allowing the easy integration.
Resolution in a video is similar in terms of using images. While the resolution doesn't matter too much, it is always good for your video to match the current monitor's resolution for most users. Currently, most people use a resolution of 1920x1080, so if you're making a video and have recorded at this resolution, I recommend keeping the video resolution to 1080p.
If you don't like the file size that comes with using 1080p, lowering it down to 1280x720 is perfectly fine for viewing.
FPS (Frames Per Second)
We recommend keeping the resolution of the video to the resolution recorded or lowering the resolution to the minimum of 29 or 30fps. 30fps is fine for a normal video that doesn't have a lot of camera movement in them.
If you have a video that is recorded in 60fps, and you don't mind the file size too much, then keeping it at 60fps is great. But lowering from 60fps to 30fps is perfectly fine.
These days watching videos is usually always done in 30 or 60fps. YouTube supports 30 or 60FPS, but allows higher, usually going higher than 60 is not worth the file size for the low different in motion.
Youtube videos are typically 30fps or 60fps, movies are typically 30fps (depending on country).
Do not try to render a video above the recorded fps, the outcome you want will not work, keep it to the same fps that you have recorded at or lower is to 30.
Videos recorded on this help site are currently recorded and rendered at 30fps.
The size of videos can differ but not matter too much. If you upload to YouTube, then follow YouTubes guidelines for uploading to their platform and use their sharing links for importing into a publication.
If you are to manually add a video as a file, then try and keep a decent file size while maintaining a good quality of the video; frame rate, data rate and duration of video can affect how large the size of the video is.
We recommend not using an inflated video file, thinking the huge file size will just equal good quality as it doesn't, having a decent size can maintain great quality while ensuring the publication loading speed keeps to a minimum.
More of this subject is discussed in the next article, but we will cover it briefly for videos. Usually, default settings of an MP4 file are perfectly fine, of a 128kb or slightly lower is good for videos and general audio.
While this isn't necessarily an important subject, in order to keep workflow going well and ensuring you know what each file is, we recommend naming the video something you will know when you first glance at it.
Giving your video a randomly generated name can slow down work time for yourself when building your publication, but when you know the file name in correspondence to the video you will know straight away and won't have to waste time viewing the video to know what it is.
