best video formats to upload
I need a little guidance. The help file tools about different video resolutions, and indicates that HD video can be output. I ended up uploading three versions of a video slideshow (6min in length) 241h, 720p, and 1020p. Can I get by with just the HD video with smugmug downrezzing or do I really need all 3?
Thanks for clarification. It also seems that the best viewing experience may come from downloading and then running the video? It seems to quit whenever the buffer runs dry with standard play. Less likely with low resolution

Hi, you should be able to just upload 1920X1080HD video and we will automatically generate all of the necessary display sizes for you. If you upload say 720, we will only create the display sizes for it and those smaller.

Depending on your connection, you can either play the video directly from the site, or download it first. I have a pretty good connection so playing from the site usually works. If I go to the other end of the house where the wifi is weak, pausing and letting the buffer download some first works better. In some cases, using a lower resolution display copy for playback is better as it will download faster.

Thanks - that answers my question - upload the highest resolution I anticipate needing and the rest is handled by the smugmug servers.
