The ability to share files such as videos, documents and spreadsheets empowers your field officers with information in a variety of formats without being online.
Compatible File Types
The following are the compatible file types for TaroWorks versions 4.0 and above:
For TaroWorks versions below 4.0, View Resource tasks support are limited to video files in .MP4 and .3GP format. If your video file is in another format, there are numerous softwares (paid and free) available from the internet to convert it. (One place to find one compatible to your computer is at download.net, though some might install additional softwares as well: http://download.cnet.com/windows/video-converters/?tag=bc)
There are further restrictions on the resolution supported based on the device and which version of the Android OS is running on it. Current testing suggest the highest resolutions for videos are:
- Android 2.1 to 2.3: 240x320
- Android 4.0: 640x360
If in doubt, you can test first by downloading the file into the device and try to play it using the default media player.
We'd also recommend keeping video files under 5MB in size to be cautious about long downloading times.
