Attention all users!
We are happy to announce our improved video solution for all broadcasters that integrates archived videos seamlessly into SermonAudio, with unlimited storage and unlimited bandwidth, at reasonable rates without additional recurring monthly fees! Oh, and no ads ever! We never charge by storage or bandwidth usage and we fully support both 16:9 widescreen and 4:3 standard sizes!
Multi-Platform Support! All new videos uploaded to SermonAudio are now transcoded into the industry-standard MP4 (H.264+AAC) format. This enables us to stream the same video to a wide variety of devices including PCs, Macs, iPods, Roku TV, and mobile phones like the iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, and more!
Higher Quality! 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! Check out the videos of some of these high-quality examples: here, here, here, and here.
Other Improvements! Our video upload rates have decreased, but our video encoding quality and speed have both increased with our improved encoding infrastructure. We can now accept more video formats including MPG, MOV, M4V, F4V, WMV, MP4, etc. Additionally, as a courtesy we automatically generate a 150kbps version of the same video and an audio-only MP3 for slower connections and mobile users.
Our video player is flash-based for no-hassle playback 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. Additional features include: displaying the sermon details, featured product, and alternate firewall link support.
In addition to church services, you can also upload videos of mission trips, special events, lectures, youth and family camps, special video presentations, DVDs (entire or clips), archived live video webcasts, and even a welcome greeting video of your church.
Please note that copyrighted content or musical performances of any kind are not permitted. Other restrictions may apply.
