SSP Best Practices - Media file sizes -
4/27/2018Applicable SongShow Plus Versions:
This article applies to all versions of SongShow Plus.
When creating programs and slide shows for use in SongShow Plus, users typically will include various media such as Videos, Images and Audio. The media used for this may come from a variety of sources.
For the best performance of SongShow Plus, we recommend that your target size for these items be the smallest file size possible while getting the quality that you want.
For audio this is fairly straight forward since the different audio file options don't vary the file size a huge amount. For videos and images on the other hand, changes in things like resolution, bit-rate, frame rate and file type can have a large effect on the resulting file size.
There are several other KB articles that cover some of these recommendations so I won't re-hash that here but you should try to have your Images and Videos match the resolution of your projector. This will ensure that SongShow Plus is not having to "over process" the content to get it to your screen and with all other things equal, this practice will improve the performance and overall SSP experience.
