The Mac app transcodes all media as audio proxies (i.e. without video) by default. Uploading and transcoding audio only is much faster than including video proxies, but there are some situations where video is necessary.

To turn on videos proxies, follow these directions.

Before adding your media, click on the purple + icon in the Drag and Drop box three times


Once clicked, a video emoji will appear before the words Drag and Drop.

To turn off video proxies, click + three times and the the video emoji will disappear.
