This topic describes the scenarios of ApsaraVideo Media Processing (MPS).

Video websites

MPS provides a one-stop audio and video solution that integrates audio and video uploading, automatic transcoding, media resource management, and CDN acceleration. MPS allows you to easily convert the format and definition of a media file to adapt to various terminal devices and network environments.

  • Adaption to different terminal devices and network environments

    You can produce video files of varied definitions, such as the standard definition, high definition, and ultra-high definition, to adapt the bitrates to different network bandwidths. You can also convert media formats to support the playback on multiple types of terminal devices, including PCs, TVs, and mobile devices.

  • Highly customizable media processing

    You can customize transcoding templates to convert media files into FLV, M3U8, and MP4 formats at different resolutions, bitrates, and frame rates.

  • Intelligent recommendation of video templates

    MPS recommends the intelligent transcoding template that provides the optimal output quality based on the intelligent analysis results of the video content.

  • Integration with MNS queues and notifications

    MPS is integrated with Message Service (MNS) so that you can keep track of the status of jobs.

Online education

MPS offers various features to provide optimal video experience, meet the needs of teachers to share course videos, and realize the unified management of educational resources. This helps you easily build your own teaching platform.

  • Video copyright protection

    MPS protects your video copyright in an all-around way by using media fingerprints and video encryption. MPS also provides highly reliable cloud storage services, the flexible and customizable hotlink protection feature, and the URL signing feature to ensure resource security.

  • Brand logo promotion

    A maximum of four static images in the PNG format can be added to an output video.

  • Lower costs and higher efficiency

    MPS uses efficient encoding algorithms to reduce the bitrate and stuttering in playback without compromising the video quality. Storage and traffic costs are saved.

TV media

MPS provides transcoding services that meet the requirements of traditional radio and television technical specifications on videos. The high-speed transcoding feature helps you achieve higher transcoding efficiency. MPS has extensive experience in optimizing blockbusters so as to provide higher image quality and a better playback experience.

  • Upload on multiple terminals and playback on all platforms

    MPS provides a variety of upload and playback methods. ApsaraVideo Player SDKs for web, iOS, and Android are provided to meet video upload and playback requirements in different scenarios.

  • Elastic transcoding

    High-speed transcoding can increase the transcoding speed by five times. MPS uses a high-speed and stable system for parallel transcoding, and implements seamless scale-out of transcoding jobs.

  • Video reproduction

    You can use MPS to upscale a low-quality video to a video with a higher definition based on smart reproduction technologies, such as video AI, super-resolution technology, and media processing technology.

Pan-entertainment videos

MPS provides complete video services for pan-entertainment portals. This helps you easily build a pan-entertainment video platform that has abundant features.

  • Easy integration

    You can use APIs to easily integrate MPS with existing media asset systems and content management systems.

  • Automated review for higher efficiency

    MPS intelligently detects pornographic content, terrorist content, ads, and undesirable content in a video. This feature can help you reduce manpower costs for manual review and lower the risks that may be brought by non-compliant content.

  • AI empowerment

    The video AI feature learns from image aesthetics and a large amount of user behavior data, and selects the optimal snapshot of a video as the thumbnail to improve the conversion rate (CVR) of the video.
