Video Key Frame Interval

Before uploading videos, do I need to set a specific key frame interval or does Cloudflare Stream optimize automatically?

As far as I’m aware, all uploaded videos are re-encoded by Cloudflare Stream anyway, so my general approach has been to focus on quality, not optimisation.

Yes I know Cloudflare re-encodes, but what I’d still like to know is whether that includes the key frame interval.

Hey! Even though Stream supports videos with much higher keyframe intervals, please use a key frame interval of less than 10 seconds ideally between 2 to 5 seconds when uploading videos.

Keeping the key frame interval on the shorter side will speed up processing significantly.
