Our company is new to sending out videos to our employees. Our IT area is using Microsoft Expression Encoder to load on our servers. The quality is awful. It looks like the Pro (paid) version is no longer available for purchase. What encoder software should I suggest to our IT area?

Are you asking what should they use for encoding?

Or how should they encode the video?

Some flavor of MP4 would be the most likely encoding type...

what to use?

Why not Adobe Media Encoder?

kind of depends on what the workflow is (volume, contributors)...

How are these videos distributed to the employee viewers?

I send our IT the file and they upload it to a SharePoint site. They send us a link and we send out the link.

Hi...


Is the video embedded in some sort of web page or presentation?


if they just see it playing back in some sort of player in their desktop then the transition to a new format should be pretty painless..

if it's a component of a designed content (power point, website, etc) then it becomes an authoring question...

does that help?

Ah. Two different parties appear to need information. And to help, we do too.

You may need to know the type of file to give to IT for either 1) its ultimate use or 2) excellent image quality for further endoding to meet its ultimate use and for future repurposing.
IT may need to know the appropriate type of file to either receive or to create for its purposes.

But without additional information about how these videos are ultimately used and the workflow between the two departments, it's difficult to make a solid recommendation on how to proceed.

It's the blind leading the blind! I give her the file and she uploads it on a web server. It's beautiful on my machine and everyone's monitor in my department. We are just sending out to all home office employees so they are watching it on their PC

Is it a private youtube channel, perhaps? Or Vimeo? If that's the case, Adobe Media Encoder has compression presets for them. Just drag in your final, high-quality file, and AME takes care of the rest.

...we don't really know what your colleague in IT is doing. We're flying blind. We can only speculate until we know what's going on. We could be giving you completely useless advice!

This stuff ain't as straightforward as you may think........
