For test purposes, we have created two similar videos of Great Witley Filling Station. One has been saved as an AVI file, which is smaller (3mb) but won’t play on iphones or ipads, the other is an MP4 file which will play on iphones and ipads but is over twice as large at 7mb.
This test page allows you see the two versions (AVI & MP4) and see which runs best on your device – which might be Apple device (Macbook, iPad, iPhone etc), or Microsoft Window or Android. Each device may display video differently depending on the format of the video.
In order to make the videos available on this website, we can add them to our storage on this website – this means they play straight off the website. You can see how this works under options (1) and (2) below,
Alternatively we can add a link from this website which goes to the files our Google Drive storage – as per option (3) below. Using this option means the Google Drive player will open and play the video.
Try viewing the two versions of the video using the links below to see if any methods cause problems viewing the video on your device, and let us know which you prefer.
1) The AVI version (direct from this website)
2) The MP4 version (direct from this website)
Play the MP4 version you can see below. Again this is stored on this website.
3) Both videos stored on Google Drive
Click these links to see the different versions displayed on Google Drive:
Both of these will open in the Google Drive video player.
