Video Encoding

The way that digital files are encoded plays a big part in the quality of video, and the ability to get the crisp details across, while trying to keep file sizes down. In our video encoding services, Transloadit offers a variety of features to maximize file compatibility across platforms, as well as enrich video with effects, loops, watermarks, and more, to get the most out of your (user generated) video content.

Features in Video Encoding

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 /video/adaptive Robot encodes videos into HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and MPEG-Dash supported formats and generates the necessary manifest and playlist files
  • The /video/concat Robot concatenates several videos together
  • The /video/encode Robot encodes, resizes, applies watermarks to videos and animated GIFs
  • The /video/merge Robot composes a new video by adding an audio track to existing still image(s) or video
  • The /video/thumbs Robot extracts any number of images from videos for use as previews
