Peertube auto play & transcoding


#1

Hey just simple question possible to change auto play just for 480p by default like on this video https://peertube.ziuri.me/videos/watch/d9a93ae1-df7f-409d-bfe6-f9065b152580 because for some users like and for me video start play 480p but in couple sec. This video start to play 1080p so I wanna make default and always will be playing just 480p… Second question why if I make convert just for 480p video is still doing higher quality like on this video https://peertube.ziuri.me/videos/watch/5d6f0528-a366-4c3f-95c1-e10e984179f2 I was thinking its will be just 480p but after transcoding they give me and 1080p so if is possible to do something please let me know how
thanks guys

I can’t open your videos. First question should be asked on the peertube repo page. They can provide you better details about this. Regarding your second question you have to make false resolutions fields in production.yaml.

# If enabled, the video will be transcoded to mp4 (x264) with "faststart" flag
# In addition, if some resolutions are enabled the mp4 video file will be transcoded to these new resolutions.
# Please, do not disable transcoding since many uploaded videos will not work
transcoding:
  enabled: true
  threads: 1
  resolutions: # Only created if the original video has a higher resolution, uses more storage!
    240p: false
    360p: false
    480p: false
    720p: false
1080p: false

so its looks like that

transcoding:
enabled: true
threads: 1
resolutions: # Only created if the original video has a higher resolution, uses more storage!
240p: false
360p: false
480p: false
720p: false
1080p: false

what and where I have to change something?

You should ask the on the Peertube core app page about this. As this is not related to Peertube packaging.
