Need a way to convert media files from one format to another? Check out the Amazon Elastic Transcoder.
To use the Transcoder, you make a pipeline to two S3 buckets for input and output, then generate transcoding jobs. These jobs read the media file from the input, transcodes it into the format you want, then puts it into the output.
Now, you may transcode to the high-quality MPEG-DASH format, which is ideal for streaming from HTTP servers. It is versatile enough to adapt network throughput using adaptive streaming, letting it work well across different platforms and bitrates.
When first transcoded, the MPEG-DASH format divides the output file into parts, each part at different bitrates. A playlist with these parts is sent to the client, who can monitor then monitor the bandwidth performance. The player can then select the bitrate version to use, depending on the throughput.
Quick, scalable, cost-effective, and easy to use, AWS Elastic Transcoder is handy for media-intensive websites. You may start transcoding with MPEG-DASH today.
