1. Login to the Strawberry Admin panel
2. Click on “Assets”
3. Click on the “Proxy File Configuration” bar to expand it
In here you can set the proxy file properties as following:
- Proxy File Location: shows where Strawberry saves the proxy files that it generates. This location is defined upon installation and can only be changed by modifying the Strawberry configuration files on the Strawberry server.
- Bitrate: Define the proxy bitrate (per second). Please keep in mind that lower bitrates might be more suitable for users connecting via the Internet while higher bit rates are good for LAN operations. Is there a golden rule? Unfortunately not. If you are using the Strawberry Preditor Add-on we recommend a low proxy bitrate (700k – 900k) as multiple proxy files are streamed simultaneously.
- Resolution: Choose a resolution for your proxy files. There should always be a healthy relationship between the resolution and the bit rate. For example: A 1920×1080 proxy file should have a bitrate of at least ~1200k while a 640×360 proxy should look good with a 600k bitrate.
- Image Sequence Recognition: When Strawberry detects an image sequence (Basename & Count) with more than 20 individual images in it, it will create a single preview MP4 file out of it. An image sequence must have a delimiter between its basename and its count. Valid delimiters are “-” (dash), ”.” (dot) and “_” (underscore). “sequence-name_001” is an example of a valid naming convention.
Image Label Burn-In: Enable this option if you wish Photoshop layer names to be burned into proxy files that are based on multi-layer images.
Timecode Burn-In for downloadable proxies: If you wish to have a video time code burned into your downloadable proxy files you should enable this feature. Proxy files streamed within Strawberry have a dynamic Timecode overlay that can be toggled bottom, top or off.
- Timecode label position for downloadable proxies: Defines whether the proxy time codes are burned into the bottom or top of downloadable proxy files
- Visual Watermark: Check this box if you want Strawberry to burn a visual watermark into your proxy files.
- Watermark Position: Decide on which position of the screen your watermark image should be visible
- Watermark Image: Upload a Watermark image as a .png file. The image should not be larger than your current proxy resolution and should have a transparent background. You can download example watermarks here: dl.flavoursys.com/manuals/supporting_files/Example_Proxy_Watermarks.zip
Watermark Preview: Previews your uploaded watermark in respect of the current proxy resolution as well as the current Timecode burn-in position.
