Why use Video Editing Software to create several versions of your video when you can specify a custom width from within your AudioAcrobat account? If you’re bandwidth-conscious, you may want to create several files with different resolutions for publishing on various sites/locations … but for most users, it’s all about ease of use and being able to accomplish goals quickly and effectively.
In today’s posting we will take our readers through the steps of publishing Video to the Web while specifying a custom width; which is especially helpful for customizing Websites, Landing Pages, Blog Posts, HTML Newsletters, AudioNotes & more.
Take The Bull By The Horns
To give our readers the most flexibility and highest quality product, we recommend producing and uploading your video at a resolution of either 640×480 (Full Screen) or 640×384 (Widescreen). This will allow you the most amount of flexibility when publishing your video to the Web.
At this time, the largest resolution Video file AudioAcrobat will output to our members’ accounts is 640 pixels. This allows for a customizable range of width from anywhere between 1 and 640 pixels … without “stretching” or distorting the image.
Hint: The larger the resolution selected at the time of Upload, the more flexibility afforded when Publishing.
1. Login to your AudioAcrobat account
2. Click the blue “Video” tab
3. Click the title of the Video you wish to publish
4. Click “Publish Video”
5. Click “Publish for Website”
Login to your AudioAcrobat account
Click “Publish Video”
Click “Publish for Website”
Depending on whether or not you’ve already specified the “Saved Settings” for your Video players, you will see “Publish for Website” or both “Publish for Website” and “Use Saved Settings”. If you are familiar with your “Save Settings” and wish to use them in this case, feel free to go ahead and select, “Use Saved Settings“. If not, simply click, “Publish for Website.”
Once your selection has been made, you will be on a page labeled, “Generate HTML Code“. Here you will see the “Player Style” options, which allows you to enter a custom “Video Width“, such as the value of “480” entered below.
Note: AudioAcrobat currently allows its members to specify a custom width up to 720 pixels wide. Knowing that the largest uploaded resolution is 640 pixels wide … any custom Video Width specified between 641-720 pixels will be of slightly less quality than the same video published at 640 pixels due to a slight “stretching” of the resolution.
As mentioned previously, AudioAcrobat provides the ability for you to save your preferences for future publishing. At the bottom of the page our readers will find a check box prompting the user to save their preferences. Click “Preview” to see your selections in real-time and when ready to generate the code for your custom player, click “Generate HTML Code“.
On the proceeding page, our readers will be prompted to highlight and copy the HTML Code for their custom player. This code can be pasted anywhere HTML code (containing iFrames) is accepted, including Websites, Landing Pages, Blog Posts, HTML Newsletters, AudioNotes & more!
As the need for further customization becomes more and more apparent in day-to-day conversations with our readers, we here at AudioAcrobat wish to extend an outreaching hand to our members in these pioneering times — which often require nothing short than 120% of our time and energy in order to continue growing our businesses and paving the way for future generations — especially when it comes to creating, broadcasting and distributing information of the utmost importance.
Which brings us to our closing mantra … What are you waiting for? Why settle for a Newsletter that is slightly “off” … or a website that plays video but isn’t the right size or has advertisements for other people’s products distracting your visitors? Get started customizing your personal, business-related or viral video the way you want it — and always remember — If your audience can’t hear you talking, why would they bother to listen in the first place?
