Should I MP4 or WebM?
Videos are one of the fastest growing categories of user generated content, with upwards of 85% of internet users in the United States streaming online videos every week!
MediaMachine simplifies the process of encoding your video assets into different formats. If you're running a platform that serves videos to users, and not supporting multiple formats and resolutions, you are missing out. For example, YouTube makes their videos available in more than 5 resolutions and formats.
Let MediaMachine focus on handling your video transcoding needs while you focus on your business.
Your users are very likely consuming video content from various devices with various form factors. Having videos available in multiple sizes lets you support all those devices and lets your users choose the best video size based for their bandwidth and devices. You can also adaptively switch between stream sizes to give your users an uninterrupted streaming experience.
Multiple streaming devices means multiple decoder implementations. MediaMachine lets you convert between various encodings and container formats so that you can reach a wider audience.
