    MiniMAd bigger files

    by melting » Mon May 03, 2021 3:04 pm

    Hi, can we put bigger SD-cards than 16GB into the MiniMAd, so that we can put bigger video-files ?
    We have a 4K-file for 2 Minimads and we have by fat the best results with the "Appleprores" codec, which does huge files, so we are very limited with the lenght of the mediafile with only 16GB

    Whatever the original format of your source video file, MadMapper will transcode it to H264/420 in order for MiniMad to play it.
    Also, your 4k stream will be downscaled (to a maximum of 1080p depending on the export settings) in order to ensure a smooth playback on the MiniMad.
    Hence your big video file will probably weight a fraction of its original size once transcoded and transferred to the MiniMad's SD-card.
    Also please note that the MINIMAD partition on the SD-card supports files up to 4GB.
