I’ve finally logged in to use ClipScribe for the first time!
I just recorded a pretty long (56min) video and its file-size is about 8.7Gb.
The upload failed saying it was above the maximum upload size allowed, but to try dropbox or drive uploaders.
I couldn’t find reference to any size limitations or length limitations on the site.
Can you let me know what they are? If I did try the alternate uploaders, would those work, or is the file size too big regardless?
Ok Ben, your video is ready to go. I re-ran it on my end and it went through, so I am going to have to dig a bit to see why it failed the first time.
So your video looks ok from a compression stand-point, so I think the main thing is just the length. With a video that long, you could just adjust the quality settings OR you could record it at 1280X720, which in my opinion would be totally fine especially if your end-point is social media.
Your current video’s bitrate is 22 mb/second, so you if your Samsung allows you to adjust those quality settings you could also try to adjust that downward.
On iPhones, you can download camera software that give you more control, so you could check the android store for that. I use one called MoviePro that lets me have a lot more control over the quality level of my videos.
But your video is using the H.264 codec which is perfect. ClipScribe is primarily made for shorter marketing videos rather than long-form content, but all is welcome.
If you are on windows, you could try downloading Handbrake as well to see if you can get your videos to a smaller size. It is a well-known video converter.
I am here if you need further help though, as you start to work on this video.
Thank you – I’m in process with my first sub-title edit….and I’m loving it!
Oh – as I’m editing subtitles and I get to the end of one page, do I need to press SAVE before I click "View More" or does clipscribe auto-save changes on this page before showing the next bunch of subtitles in the editor?
