Why is the quality of my video degrades after it's uploaded to eYeka?

Our media player alters the media quality a little bit. Sometimes a video may even lose one to two seconds at the end of it. We apologize for the inconvenience caused and we are working to improve it. Don’t worry, the judges will elect winners based on the original media files.

Our advice for your next video (hopefully a lot more) would be to add one “safety” second at the end of your video.

The recommended format for uploading video on eYeka is:
- 320×240 pixels is the minimum resolution to display acceptable quality on eYeka website.
- Video track: mpeg4 (XVID), mov (Quicktime) at 640/480, 25 frames/s
- Audio track: mp3

Make sure you are uploading a good quality version of your media in a contest.
It is also recommended to keep a high quality (HD) version of your media in your hard drive. You may also upload the HD version on eYeka if you'd like to.
Please also be aware that HD media sometimes requires a second encoding which takes place automatically up to 20 minutes after the first. Once it's completed, your media can be accessed in full quality.
