Subject: SMTV IMPORTANT GUIDELINES for your Scenery BRoll Recording
Dear Noble Saints,
A special request from Master that host/cameraman/contact person please help to record sceneries/videos from your country to use as Brolls, so we would have our own unique footages rather than borrowing footages from the Internet.
Guidelines for broll recording. FYI, those brolls would be uploaded to the new FTP. Each center would upload to their own folder and make an ID. Then visuals will drag the files to the correct folders.
When uploading the brolls to your country folder in the FTP, when connecting to the new FTP, remote saints must select the option – “Use explicit FTP over TLS if available” – at Encryption, when setting up FTP connection. (This is to protect our connection security) If they select “Only use plain FTP”, then they will not be able to connect the new FTP.
GUIDELINES for your Scenery BRoll recording:
FILE NAMING format:
Country code City Nature Scenery Name Keywords @
(the @ sign is for us to know it’s free footage and won’t need to have a “courtesy of”)
You can also mention if it’s drone shot or time lapse as well.
Here are a few examples:
* TW Taipei Drone city buildings streets people @
* PAR Iguazu Falls UNESCO World Heritage Site waterfalls @
* FR Pyrenees National Park Time lapse mountain lake forest @
Only upload the best shots recorded
One shot = one file
Reminder of the upload format
* Only For High Quality BRoll

As a household that has several TV’s and a couple of Android boxes, we can tell you that they are superior to almost any other box or stick out there on the market. Whereas other name brand products will have limitations on what kinds of videos they can play, this Dolamee D3 box runs pure Android so there is full access to all of the apps on the Google Play store. This model also has an upgraded 2GB of RAM which definitely comes in handy when you have multiple apps open.
A lot of our videos are stored on a central NAS and this box is able to connect to it and play back every single video we have on there, ranging from different encoding formats like mp3 and mkv, with no issues at all. And since we have the box hard wired to our router, even things like fast forwarding through 4K videos works with minimal lag (something we were not able to do with some other sticks we have tried in the past). Another plus is that it has two USB ports to plug in an external USB drive, or even a wireless keyboard/mouse which makes web browsing a lot easier. Also included in the package is an HDMI cable, power adapter, and remote control so everything is there to get it up and running (installation is straight forward and takes less than 5 minutes).
Overall, we are very pleased with this box as the 2GB of memory makes it open and switch between apps buttery smooth.
Change DNS servers to improve name resolution
Domain name servers (DNS) are distributed databases used to translate the domain name (URL) into the server’s true IP address. Some DNS services are better than others depending on your location and the domains being accessed. The two DNS services below are free that can be used in your router setting.
