Encoder Guidelines / Encode Checklist

Encoding checklist

Checklist of things to check for encodes. These checks are to be done:

Encode itself:

  • Encode size isn't wildly off expected (downloadables).
  • Resolution is as expected.
  • AR flagging (downloadables) or AR precorrection (streaming) is correct.
  • Framerate is as expected (but dedupped videos can show wild framerates).


  • Logo is present, is approved and is about 2 seconds in length.


  • Check every subtitle entry and make sure it contains the correct info from the submission.
  • Subtitles are present and readable, lasting about 5 seconds each.
  • Subtitles don't cover action much.

Video itself.

  • Video doesn't duplicate frames during action sequences, that is, it looks dedupped (downloadables)
  • Video quality is good.
  • Audio quality is good.
  • Audio and video are in sync (at least check the beginning and the end)
  • Video does not cut off unexpectedly.
  • Audio does not cut off unexpectedly.

The end:

  • Ending goes on long enough.
