Be more efficient with transcoding

Effortlessly transcode

Transcoding is the process of converting a media file or object from one format to another, in order to gain compatibility with another program, application, or device. This is usually required in cases where a specific device does not support the source format or has limited storage capacity that requires a reduced file size or recognizable format.

Our Live Transcoding feature improves the viewer experience by allowing you to deliver a live stream in multiple bitrates, in order to match the viewer's connection speed. You can customize the player to detect the viewer's connection speed and select the appropriate stream.
