XF 1.4 Adding a video by BBcode so "media" gives problems (blurry)


Active member
Hello all,

I'm recording some video "how to",... but when I upload it to a topic via "media" so BBcode, this one becomes blurry for a while and after 10 seconds, it is okay.

I don't face this issue on Youtube or local.

Any idea?

The standard BB Codes don't have an 'upload' option, they are all media embeds for YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion etc. You'll have to explain a bit more about what you are doing and what you are using.

I use the balise "media" to upload a video for youtube by example but this one becmes blurry for a while.
This problem only occurs on the forum so not in local or on Youtube.

If it's from YouTube, that is typical behaviour as the video quality improves during the first few seconds of playback.
