From the official Web, the company explained that “We strive to maintain the highest possible video quality for all videos uploaded to our platform. However, we can modify or adapt your original video for distribution, syndication, publication or broadcast by us and our partners and/or make changes to adapt it to different media, including changing the resolution and bit rate of the original video during transmission based on the speed and stability of the viewer’s Internet connection.
