Variable rate streaming

This week we’ve added a function to speed up viewing videos on mobile devices and slow internet connections.

Our video player now uses ‘Variable rate streaming’.

Sounds jazzy, but what does it really do?

Well now when you open a project, Elucidat identifies the speed of your connection and adjusts the quality of the video accordingly.

This will mean you encounter far less buffering.

So… ‘Variable rate streaming’ means that if your learner is on a superfast connection then they will receive the highest quality of video and their video will load immediately.

But if they are a workaholic on a very slow network on their phone during their holiday in the countryside (lucky them!) then they will receive a slightly lower quality of video and their video will still load immediately.

In both cases, your learner will still receive the information they need.

Please note: Any video you upload from now will have ‘Variable rate streaming’ applied, any videos uploaded prior to September 2014 will need to be uploaded again for ‘Variable rate streaming’ to register.
