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.

Features in File Compressing

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

  • The /file/compress Robot Creates archives of files or file conversion results
  • The /file/decompress Robot Extracts entire archives of files to be consumed by other Robots or exported as individual files
