Darren McDonald posted a topic in NVivo for MacHello, At the moment the default setting for fully embedding an audio or video file is 20MG which can be changed to a limit of 40MB. I understand from the posts in the NVivo Wndows Forum that the 40MB limit is imposed because having data and the project size too large impairs the performance of NVivo - makes it slow and open to the opportunity of freezing/crashing. I was wondering if this limit can be revisited considering the changes and performance of the current lineup of Macs? Nearly all Mac laptops/notebooks have SSD drives, high CPU performance, dedicated graphic memory and so on. For instance, my customized MacBook Pro 15" is an extremely fast machine. Even my iMac, which is a number of years old, was the first to have the "fusion drive" and is performs very well. I understand that there maybe users who need to export projects to a Windows Nvivo format that may be used on a PC with less power. So keeping the default at 20MB makes sense in this scenario. Thus my suggestion is to keep the default at 20MB. BUT, if at all technically possible, take the limit completely off what for what the user can set at their decision. I have video and even many audio files that go beyond the 40MB limit. I want to embed these files entirely in the project. Not being able to fully embed means that I actually face MORE issues with NVivo - like having having to re-link the externally stored files and other issues. I hope the current limit can be reconsidered and lifted as I described above. Looking forward to some feedback. Cheers! Darren
