QuestionsVideo rendering and WordPress
Lars asked 1 year ago

Hi Adam,

I am running a few websites using https://www.kernel-video-sharing.com/en/ (non-WP), just as I have a few sites build on a combination of WP/aMember/Divi.

I was wondering if you, that made me spend a lot of money on WP software and AppSumo deals, also would know a software solution that could combine the best from a quality video rendering service, with the best from WP.

In short, what I am looking for is a solution, so that instead of rendering a video manually into 3 versions and manually upload all 3 versions (typical versions I make).

1146_source.mp4 [1920×1080, 8000 bitrate, 22:22, 1001.06 Mb] – download

1146.mp4 [1280×720, 22:22, 355.33 Mb] – classic stream

1146_360.mp4 [640×360, 22:22, 100.68 Mb] – mobile friend and free stream

Then to have a solution, so that I could just upload the source file(original edit – for download) and then automatically have it render a couple of additional versions for streaming. A little like if you upload a video to YouTube – then YouTube will also render this to fit their preferred formats. I have this option with Kernel, but their software does not have the flexibility of WordPress.

Happy to use an aff link if you have a good suggestion and happy for it to be paid software. I am on self-hosted servers and would be able to adjust their settings as needed.

Thanks

Lars

Yea, this is why its good to use video hosting services that manage all of that for you. I personally use VooPlayer, which is on the pricey side. Vimeo is a good option and very affordable.

But you really should be looking at using a video delivery service. I do have a video on it, but essentially its just my going into some pro/con details.

First, sorry for the Grammarly issue. I have reported it to the dev and he is supposed to be fixing it.

Next, VooPlayer, v3 doesn’t, but v4 does. However, v4 has its own annual fee.

Hi Adam, thank you for your answer. I have VooPlayer, as I bought a license from you 🙂 It has been fantastic for email collection.
I, however, do not see a way to integrate it with aMember and also I don´t think it fully supports the option to upload and render in selected formats (download, webhd and mobile streaming).

My sites are very content heavy – so I was hoping for a self-hosted option. Like now I have 12tb and huge data use.

I will have a look at your video.

PS: Off topic, it seems to me your forum has an issue with Grammarly. I first wrote a longer answer and when I auto -corrected a typo with Grammarly the box got deleted.
