.MOV files « on: October 07, 2020, 10:50:46 AM » Author: Lightingguy1994
After discussions with the other Admins, we've decided that we will no longer allow .MOV files to be uploaded to Gallery effective immediately. The majority of members are unable to view this file type and it causes complaints. These files are also very large and take up space which is wasteful when most are unable to view it anyway.

We require videos to be linked from youtube. Going forward any .MOV file seen uploaded will be deleted and a reminder sent. If you have some already, we ask that you please delete or replace them.  PDF and GIF files will continue to be allowed, though we ask that you upload GIFs sparingly.

Wouldn't be better automatically convert all videos to mp4 via ffmpeg?

At present we discourage the upload of video files to the site due to space, performance and accessibility concerns.

We may in the future look into the potential to add video capabilities... but don't expect this anytime soon as we have other items on the agenda we're looking into at the moment. So everyone will need to continue to upload to youtube and link to the site as normal.
