FFmpeg, codecs, bitrates...?!
You shouldn't have to be a video engineer to build compelling video experiences into your product. We take care of all the complexity around transcoding, transmuxing, and compressing your content into formats optimized for Adaptative Bitrate Streaming (ABR) and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) so that your videos look their best, no matter what sort of connection your viewers are on.
From 240p to 4K
Classic or 360 video
Instant video encoding
We run all our own infrastructure in order to squeeze the best performance out of each stage of the video pipeline. Our encoding times are the fastest in the industry, so you'll never be waiting around for your videos to encode.
Formats & Codecs
