File Compressing

File compression allows users create single, often smaller files, or many original input files. Supporting a wide variety of compression algorithms and formats, Transloadit is able to both archive and extract entire media libraries. Combine this with our encoding and exporting capabilities, and you get a very powerful file processing pipeline.


At Transloadit we call our features Robots because you can put them to work together to create encoding pipelines unique to your use case.
