THE "HOW-TO" OF VIDEO ENCODING

Boilsoft DVD Ripper & Video Tools
Boilsoft provides tools to rip DVDs, split and join WMVs, convert Quicktime and RealMedia files.
Magic DVD Ripper
The Magic DVD Ripper is a tool you can use to "rip" (copy) the video from existing DVDs.

Movavi Video Converter is a ground-breaking video format converter to convert video & DVD files.

We recommend the powerful yet easy-to-use Sony Vegas Movie Studio tool for any video editing!

Windows Live Movie Maker is a free video-editing tool on Windows. Capable and can't beat free!

iMovie for the Mac is the standard video-editing tool on the Mac. Start here if you own a Mac.
SermonAudio fully supports streaming video in addition to audio. You can upload videos of your church services, special events, DVD samples, welcome/greeting messages, camps, outreaches, etc.

Videos on SermonAudio can be streamed, downloaded, podcast, and enjoyed on a multitude of mobile devices including iPhones, iPods, iPads, Androids, BlackBerry phones, and ROKU TVs (more info).

To upload video content, please note the following:

  • You must be a "FULL" Broadcasting Member (more info).
  • One-time $2 upload fee for each new uploaded video.
  • No additional monthly fees!
  • Unlimited storage and unlimited bandwidth for video!
  • Videos can be easily embedded on other sites (more info).
  • Video files are encoded at 150kbps bitrate (HIFI: 800kbps) but you can upload them at any bitrate and we'll auto-convert!
  • Auto-MP3 generated from video (more info).
  • Click here to learn more about video support on SermonAudio.
  • Acceptable video formats include: WMV, MP4, M4V, F4V, MOV.
There are a number of ways to prepare video for the site (live capture, editing, DVD-ripping, converting existing video files). It is beyond the scope of our help page to give step-by-step details on each of the different methods of creating the video content. However, we can summarize the various methods below.
    Summary of steps:
  • Capture LIVE video or DUB video from another source directly into the computer using a video capture tool. Use any tool that is available with your PC.
  • If you are a live (video) webcaster on SermonAudio already, you can simply turn ON the "archive" option of the encoding software (Windows Media, Adobe Encoder, etc).
  • Optionally, you can RIP the video (to WMV or MP4) from existing DVDs using any DVD-ripping tool such as Boilsoft DVD-Ripper, the Magic DVD-Ripper, or the Xilisoft DVD-Ripper.
  • Optionally, you can convert existing Quicktime or RealVideo files to WMV or MP4 formats using any conversion tool such as Boilsoft (also provides handy tools to JOIN or SPLIT video files).
  • Optionally, you can edit your video using any video editor of your choice (Sony's Vegas Movie Studio, Movie Maker, iMovie, etc).
  • Optionally, you can use the Windows Media File Editor (which is included with the Media Encoder installation) to quickly and easily TRIM your WMV files without re-encoding.
  • Optionally, you can use QuickTime Pro to quickly and easily TRIM your MP4, F4V, or M4V files without re-encoding.
  • Acceptable video formats include: WMV, MP4, M4V, F4V, MOV.
  • Upload large videos via the FTP method.
HIFI-Enabling your broadcaster account dramatically increases the encoding quality of your videos. Feel free to upload your videos at any bitrate and resolution and look great every time! However, we have found that 1Mbps bitrate at 720p (1280x720) resolution works very well. Check out the following sample videos.

The following sample demonstrates a video with a lot of full-screen motion. Perfect for mission trip videos, camps, and other events. Upload at 720p and look great every time!



VIDEO TIP 1: Recommended Encoding Settings.

Video encoding can get confusing. But the following details may help give some guidance on what settings to use when encoding your video.

  • For standard video settings (150kbps).
    Suggested Sizes:480x360 (Widescreen: 640x360)
    Video Bitrate:Upload at any bitrate over 150kbps
    Frame Rate:15fps
    Audio Format:24kbps, MONO
  • For HIFI video settings (800kbps).
    Suggested Sizes:768x576 (Widescreen: 1280x720, 1024x576)
    Video Bitrate:Upload at any bitrate over 800kbps
    Frame Rate:30fps
    Audio Format:64kbps
As a general rule of thumb, feel free to use any settings that look best to you. Once the video is uploaded to our system, we will transcode it into the industry-standard MP4 (H.264+AAC) format. This enables us to stream the same video to a wide variety of devices:
  • Computers. Our flash-based video player is used for no-hassle playback on PCs and it utilizes a true-streaming system that allows you to instantly view and scrub through the video without waiting for it to first download.

  • iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone. The videos on SermonAudio provide smooth playback on most smartphones via our SermonAudio apps. Providing a satisfactory streaming experience for viewers over any network connection is part of our bitrate policy.

  • iPod, Portable Media Players. The MP4 videos on SermonAudio can be downloaded to most of today's popular MP3 players without any additional conversion. Our video solution takes into consideration these portable players.

  • ROKU TV via Internet. The videos on SermonAudio are also compatible with other non-phone devices such as the ROKU TV which allows users to access any audio or video content on SermonAudio through their television.

  • Slower Connection Users. High-speed users will of course benefit the most from videos. But there are still many who are on slower connections. It is for this reason that we automatically create a second lower-bitrate version (150kbps) for all uploaded HIFI (500kbps) videos.
Videos can be complicated to achieve across all platforms. But we've made it as simple as possible for all broadcasters to reach the maximum number of platforms with their single video upload!



VIDEO TIP 2: Improving the Quality of "Noisy Video"

This entire step is an optional tip to help improve the quality of "noisy video" for those experiencing this problem. The "noise" is a result of the interlacing artifacts that sometimes appears in video. The solution is simply to turn ON the DE-INTERLACING option on your encoder settings if available.

HIFI OPTION: Broadcasters that have the HIFI option enabled can upload media at higher bitrates. You must have this option enabled for your account in order to use the HIFI bitrates. To learn more, click here..
AUTO-CONVERT: You can actually upload your video in any format and we will automatically convert it to the correct format+bitrate with the ideal settings for optimum video quality! To learn more, click here..
FTP UPLOAD: Video files can get very large and uploading them may require a fast Internet connection. You can optionally use the robust FTP to upload large videos to SermonAudio.com. To learn more, click here..

YOU ARE DONE! CONGRATULATIONS!

At this point you have created the VIDEO file suitable for SermonAudio. The next step is to actually upload the video and get your sermon online! Click here to see how to SUBMIT and UPLOAD your sermon.
