What is Media Transcoding?

Last Updated: Jan 03, 2018

Alibaba Cloud Media Transcoding is a transcoding computing service provided for multimedia data. It provides an economic, easy-to-use, elastic, and highly scalable method for the conversion of audio and video stored on the OSS into formats suitable for being played on PCs, TVs, or mobile devices.

Media Transcoding (MTS) is constructed based on the Alibaba Cloud computing platform. In the past, users had to invest large amounts of funds to purchase, build, and manage transcoding software and hardware, as well as perform complex configuration optimization, transcoding parameter adaptation, and other operations. MTS has changed all this. Meanwhile, on the basis of the elasticity of cloud computing services, it provides transcoding capabilities as needed to satisfy business transcoding demands to the maximum extent possible and avoid the waste of resources.

MTS provides the followig functions: the Web management console, service APIs, and SDKs. These functions allow you to use and manage transcoding service, and integrate transcoding functions into your own apps and services.
