- Fiverr stop compressing audio/video gig samples.
- Fiverr compression is not something that bothers me or notice.
Hi Fiverr’s (This Poll is 100% anonymous )
Poor Audio / Video quality in any streamed gig portfolio or examples…
This POLL not just directed at voice overs and sellers that produce audio.
As this seems to effect anyone creating a gig, delivering , and portfolio samples.
This is a recent phenomenon that sellers noticed around June /July of this year.
If you have uploaded an audio sample or video recently you may have noticed a drastic drop
in the quality of the video, audio especially. At my estimation no matter what you upload the audio is compressed to about the equivalent of a bad MP3 file. That is unacceptable if you are a voice over artist.
If a perspective client first impression of your expected delivery quality is extremely diminished. This reflects very badly as a first impression. Most new clients listen to your gig Audio/Video, delivery, portfolio samples on their smartphone and Pc’s by streaming them. Only the final downloaded delivery is uncompressed. Spending $'s and time trying to produce a high quality content to attract clients - this is very unacceptable.
Gigs older than 6 months are probably unaffected.
Clients ARE assuming that is the final expected quality, resulting in notation now to clients delivery to download the audio files first before reviewing it.
See below of a before and after file compression description (essentially audio/video bitrate is halved) Based on a 70sec full HD 50mb file. Attached also is a sound cloud clip with both versions before and after uploading file… @ 1:02 is where the Fiverr stream version starts.
It appears no matter what video example you upload to Fiverr this is the best you can expect.
Also audio and deliveries, portfolio audio is also now pushed down to 22ktz audio sample rate. As and example 44ktz is DVD quality . So 22ktz is no better than …well listen below…
This nearest comparison of how it used to be -and now!
16ktz @ 0:20
