The picdrop video function: Video streaming, quick preview and thumbnail - the most important at a glance

Our picdrop video function with streaming, quick preview & preview image is included in the Pro and Business plans, as well as in the Test month and the (old) Studio plan. Lite and Free users can upload and download videos to their account. 

Here you can find an overview of all supported video formats.

Furthermore, you can find more information about the different limits of the video function in our plans here.

Video streaming allows you and your clients to play video files directly in picdrop. Each video must be processed first to be playable. Once uploaded and processed, your videos can be played as many times as you and your clients want. Processing your video file into a playable video in picdrop takes about one minute per minute of video. So have a little patience please.

Your video files also display a preview thumbnail that we create directly from the file. 

And that's not all: we also show a quick preview for your video files when you or your clients move the mouse over the file. From left to right, you can scroll through the quick preview by moving the mouse. The quick preview and the thumbnail give you and your clients a good impression of your files and make it easy for everyone to (re)find a desired video file quickly in the gallery.

If you have problems playing a video, we have compiled an article on possible causes here.
