Video engagement on web and mobile devices has never been higher. Social media marketing platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are stuffed with videos; Facebook even comes with a entire tab dedicated to videos. Now non-social media apps are looking at video also. Many organisations including Airbnb, Sonos, Gatorade, and Kayla Itsines have seen tremendous success using video advertisements on Instagram while the likes of Saks show in-app product videos for their best-selling items.
If you’ve downloaded Spotify, Tumblr, or Lyft, you’ve probably seen the playback quality playing in private of these login screens. These fun, engaging videos supply the user an excellent feel for the app along with the brand before entering the experience.
Compression is usually an important although controversial topic in app development specially when you are looking at hardcoded image and video content. Are designers or developers in charge of compression? How compressed should images and videos be? Should design files offer the source files or the compressed files?
While image compression is reasonably basic and accessible, video compression techniques vary determined by target unit and use and will get confusing quickly. Wanting at the possible compression settings for videos may be intimidating, specifically if you don’t know very well what they mean.
Why compress files?
The typical quality of your iOS app is 37.9MB, and you will find a couple of incentives for using compression strategies to maintain your height and width of your app down.
Large files make digital downloads and purchases inconvenient. Smaller quality equals faster data transfer speed for your users.
There’s a 100MB limit for downloading and updating iOS apps via cellular data. Uncompressed videos could be 100MB themselves!
When running have less storage, it’s easy for users to go into their settings to see which apps think about the most space.
Beyond keeping media file sizes down for your app store, uncompressed images and videos make Flinto and Principle prototype files huge and difficult for clients to download.
Background videos for mobile apps are neither interactive nor the main focus of the page, so it’s far better to use a super small file with the appropriate level of quality (preferably no bigger 5-10MB). It doesn’t have to be that long, especially if it possesses a seamless loop.
While GIFs and video clips can be used for this purpose, video clips tend to be smaller in dimensions than animated GIFs. Apple iOS devices can accept .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats.
