We unfortunately don’t have the resources to handle the kind of transcoding load that a whole directory of conversion would create. We have about 20 servers which are already transcoding day and night. We can’t yet afford to add more and we have to keep MP4 transcoding available so that all files are playable using HTML5 web playback and on devices like the Chromecast or the Roku.

We might introduce a feature where you could "schedule" a folder for MP4 conversion which would be done in the background in a queue, but we need to consider that carefully.

Did this answer your question?
