TranscodeIt has been taken offline for renovations and improvements. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Transcode-It uses a web based front-end for video conversion. Simply upload a video file and Transcode-It will take care of the rest. Transcode-It removes the need for users to keep up with complicated video programs and removes the headaches of installing any and every required video or audio codec.
Transcode-It allows for custom video settings as well as the ability to upload newly created video to the server via FTP.
1. Add E-mail Address.
Once the file has been created, Transcode-It sends an e-mail notification that the video is complete. The email also includes alink to the download location.
2. Select a file.
Browse to the file on the local computer and select the file to be uploaded.
3. Configure the new file.
There are several ways to configure the new file. Transcode-It can be allowed to figure out the best way to handle the file or specific settings can be configured. Choose one of the following:
- Let Transcode-It figure out appropriate settings for me.
Transcode-It will automatically create the video for you and requires no knowledge of video codecs or any other video settings. Videos for iPhones and iPods can be created also.
- Use source video settings.
This will keep the general settings of the file (bitrate/dimensions/etc) and produce
a video with the appropriate codec.
- Let me configure settings.
The following settings can be configured: bitrate, frame rate, audio rate, and the dimensions. It is recommended that only the dimensions be changed unless you fully understand what adjusting each setting does.
4. Click Preview if necessary.
5. Handling the video.
Once the file is created, Transcode-It needs to know how to handle the file. There are two ways for the file to be handled. Choose one of the following:
- Let Me Download it.
If you select this option, once the file has finished being uploaded you will receive an e-mail with instructions on where to download the file. Please note that the file is only available for 48 hours after which it will be purged from the system.
Automatically upload it to my website
Enter the FTP login information for your server. Transcode-It will attempt to connect to your server and once successful, it will display the directory listing. From here you can navigate to the directory the video will reside and Transcode-It will automatically place the file in that directory and nothing else will be required of you!
Once the file is created and uploaded to the site, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with details of where the file was uploaded.
6. Final Results
A few more options after receiving the email:
The link to download the new video is sent, if so configured.
- Embed Code
Once the file has been created, Transcode-It actually creates the code for the site to display the video. This code can be used with OU Campus to insert the video onto the site.
