Video / audio transcoding

Video and audio files depend of browser plug-ins to play properly. If your video files are in .mp4/.m4a (H.264) format you be able to preview the original video/audio file directly in the browser. If your files are in another format/encoding, Filecamp encodes a copy of your video / audio file to ensure that your video/audio file can be previewed in a browser and on all devices. This copy is used for preview purposes inside Filecamp only. The original file uploaded to Filecamp will, of course, not be affected!

The encoding process will start automatic when you upload video and audio files to Filecamp. If you try and preview a file before the encoding process is finish Filecamp shows you a “Please wait, encoding file” message. If you don’t want Filecamp to encode your video files just upload them as .mp4/.m4a (H.264) files.

Most video and audio files are encoded almost instantly. For larger files (+1GB) the encoding process might take up to an hour. All encoded video files are previewed as a mp4, H.264, ACC, 720 px, wide format file. But you will always download the original video and audio files.
