It is a requirement that new publications be placed on a streaming media site. This page documents current site best practices for uploads to one of those sites.

List of uploaders


Encodes intended for publication on streaming media sites have some special requirements to ensure they are processed properly by the site in question. Where possible, high definition encodes should be used to ensure the maximum possible video quality is provided by the streaming site's post-processing. For YouTube and Dailymotion, videos may need to be segmented (consult the streaming media encoding guide for details on segmentation).

After adding the link to the movie's data, make sure the "watch using" buttons appear and work properly.

Shortening the Name





Although suffering from many limitations at this point in time, YouTube is the streaming media site most commonly used by our encoders these days due to its support for high definition videos.



  • The site now fully supports YouTube playlists in most of its modules, so please link to the playlist.

archive.org normally post-processes MP4s/MKVs into a streamable "512kb" encode, which is automatically linked to from the site if the archive.org link is added as a mirror.

Unfortunately, archive.org normally does a very poor job of deriving these encodes, so you may need to provide your own. Consult EncodingGuide/StreamingMedia for information about what is needed for this.
