    Lightbulb Tutorial: How to turn off transcoding

    If you want Mezzmo to stream your original files to your devices and not transcode any incompatible file, then you can turn transcoding off in Mezzmo. Mezzmo will simply deliver your files natively to your devices. This can be useful to determine what types of files can be played on your device. This format knowledge can also help Conceiva staff fine tune device profiles for devices.

    Important: Turning off transcoding may result in some files not being played on your devices due to compatibility issues with your device. It will also stop subtitles being embedded and/or burnt into your videos.

    There are two ways to turn off transcoding in Mezzmo:
