Re: Why the oddball ISOM codec on videos?

Why is the church using this oddball codec instead of an industry standard codec like MPEG? I touched base with the encode team and got the following response: "The Brightcove Mezzanine files that we send to Brightcove are H.264 "avc1" in an mp4 wrapper with standard frame rates and ...

There are challenges and people discussing them at church headquarters, but please, please, start communicating with us! If there is an effort to have ISO's I will wait for those before I start burning DVD's, but we need to know that in the next week or two. We really don't want to be going a direc...

I think the most cost/labor effective thing is to have a central resource that includes ISO images. This option has been discussed. Not all the content currently available has been authored for DVD distribution so that is an action that would have to take place in order for the ISO to be available....

Has anyone considered a "Come Follow Me" app for tablet that will allow a teacher to stream (at home) to decide whether they want to show it, then download the clip if desired, and then show (from local tablet storage) the clip during class? Would function similar to the new Podcasts app on iOS, yo...

It would be helpful to know what is your definition of "near future?"...will there be an announcement within a couple of months that makes us wish we had held out just a little longer? Hold out a little longer. With the New Youth Curriculum coming out in 2013 there are a lot of discussions taking p...

Wow, you must have much more current TV technology than our stake does. I think our newest TV is at least 15 years old. No "USB feature" on any of our TVs! We are actually testing here at the Church Office Building. The TVs in my Ward House are as old as yours. In that case I would suggest a USB pl...

Wondering if using a tv that has a wireless connection would work for streaming video's. We have found in our testing the processing power on SmartTVs to be slow. We have also encountered a lot of buffering issues trying to stream on a LAN. I would not suggest trying to stream content on a SmartTV ...

Does apple airplay buffer the stream or are we still going to have issues with the buffering? Also found roku doesn't support wmv files I currently use the AppleTV to play videos, audio, and pictures for my Gospel Doctrine Class. In this case the videos are downloaded to my iPad and use the LAN(WIF...
