Multimedia (audio, video, animation) content guidelines
The Society invites members to contribute multimedia content (audio, video, animation) to eG Forums discussions. In order to ensure the quality and long-term viability of such content, please follow these guidelines:
- Multimedia submissions must substantially further and contribute to our food discussions.
- For widest video compatibility we recommend the MPEG video format at a resolution of 352x240; however, any popular video format supported by Windows Media Player and Quicktime Player is sufficient. For audio we require the .mp3 format. For animation, please provide a Flash file.
- Please limit multimedia submissions to a maximum of 10 minutes and 100 megabytes unless the Society has solicited a longer or larger submission.
- You may link to external multimedia content from your eG Forums posts, so long as you follow the Society's external linking guidelines, specifically:
External links are permitted and encouraged to the extent that they substantially further and contribute to the dialogue. We do not permit links posted primarily for the purpose of promoting a business or entity, links to "adult" or "mature content" media, links in lieu of making a substantive post on an eG Forums topic or links to websites that substantially violate our policies and principles.
Web pages and websites that exist today may not exist tomorrow, and online articles are often free only for a fixed period of time. Thus, links to external media should always include a brief summary and/or quotation that makes it possible for readers to understand the spirit of the linked material without the need to follow the link.
