From now on, we will be using JPGs instead of PNGs for our poster frame images. We’ve converted all of the old poster frames to JPGs as well.

What does this mean for you? Overall, we cut down on the file size of the poster frames across all accounts by roughly 80%. That means you’ll be using less of your storage quota to store poster frames and will have more room for your videos. Also, the smaller file sizes mean that poster frame will load considerably more quickly and in some cases up to 93x faster! All of this was done with almost no decrease in image quality.
