Unlike many other video presentation systems which restrict you to a choice of one or two video formats, AutoView is 'format agnostic'. We aim to support as wide a range of video formats and video plugins as possible so that the content creator can choose the format that is best for their purpose. When creating a presentation, you should take into account the likely capabilities of the computers and internet connections owned by your target audience.MPEG 4
(.mp4, compatible with Quicktime
) is a good first choice format, this format is widely supported and has been approved as an ISO standard
which should give you some insurance against future changes in the computer industry. Flash Video
is similarly widely supported, will work well for most users and is the format used by our Lecture Capture Live addon for AutoView.
