Videos

Videos with the MPEG-4 AVC format can be played natively by most modern browsers. PhotoPrism uses ffmpeg to transcode other common video formats to MPEG-4 AVC. All video formats, that can be transcoded by ffmpeg are supported.

In case you have problems with a specific format, let us know!

By default PhotoPrism transcodes videos, when they are first played. This may lead to long loading times for very long or high resolution videos. You can use docker-compose exec photoprism photoprism convert to convert videos upfront.

In Videos you find all your videos. To play a video click .
