NOTE
In case the AEM Screens video renditions do not play optimally on your device, contact the hardware vendor for the specifications of the video. This helps to get the best performance on the device and hence creates your own custom video profile where you provide the appropriate parameters for FFMPEG to generate your rendition. Then, use the steps below to add your custom video profile to the list of profiles.
Also, see Troubleshooting Videos to debug and troubleshoot video playing in your channel.
