Default Flight App Settings
How to check your default settings in the latakoo Flight app
After you upgrade your latakoo Flight desktop app, it’s good to check your default settings. It’s good to check these periodically, in any case! Mobile app settings are covered below.
Desktop Flight App
There are five settings: Default Bitrate, Default Networks, Default Upload, Metadata Defaults, and Default Folder.
To get started, click on the Options button from the Flight application window (lower left.) That opens a new window.
Make sure you’re on the General Options tab.
This is the default compression setting that will be used for your uploads unless another is selected before starting the upload.
This is the default used in the watch folder workflow as well.
Make sure you consult with your organization’s guidelines when setting this default rate. Moving the slider further to the left means your files have a lower bit rate and more compression and further to the right means less compression or no compression. Read more about bit rates and compression.
This setting determines which network will receive your uploaded files on latakoo.com. These settings can be changed before you start the upload. Multiple networks can be selected.
This setting allows you to choose a default upload type. Individual is what we would recommend. If you need to upload a group or a group stitch, that’s a setting that’s easy to change during the upload process.
This determines what kind of metadata form you want to set as a default. We recommend you choose individual form, especially if you selected individual uploads as your default upload setting. This setting can easily be overridden during the upload process. For example, while uploading a group of files, you will be prompted to select individual or group metadata form.
This setting controls where latakoo saves your encoded downloads. There are two ways to download files with latakoo. This option sets the location where any files you encode with the latakoo Flight application are saved. For downloads with your browser, those default locations are set in your browser settings.
Mobile Flight App
Use the menu bar at the bottom of the screen to locate Settings. Similar to the desktop app, you have a choice of default network and default upload quality.
In the mobile applications, you can set default home networks, which restrict your Pilot feed to selected networks in the app. You can also set SMS notifications for networks in this menu. In the latest mobile app, version 2.5, the app will allow you to set a capture preference, to force a horizontal shot or allow you to record video vertically.
