Washington [US]Micro-blogging platform Twitter’s poor video quality has been a long-running disappointment for users on the platform, but recently the company shared some potentially promising news.
According to The Verge, videos uploaded to the service will now “appear less pixelated for a better viewing experience,” Twitter said in a tweet from its support account. Twitter has removed the pre-processing step in its video pipeline when you upload, the company told The Verge. It splits the video in stages into smaller chunks for ingestion, which can reduce quality due to additional processing.
While it may appear better, Twitter later told the outlet that the changes announced on Friday are not yet supported in Twitter Media Studio. Also, this upgrade only applies to newly uploaded videos, so older videos won’t see the improvements.
That said, it’s promising to see that Twitter is putting some effort into improving its video experience and that future upgrades could scale up to past video quality. (ANI)
