Encoding video with

Encoding can be a hard job. Why not outsource it? takes your video, encodes it and sends it back to you. For small consumers and testing purposes there is a free package available. 
There are different methods to send your video. 
Desktop Application — An Adobe Air application available on both Windows and OSX platforms enables complete upload and management of your encoding projects directly from your desktop. 
Web Interface — The client interface has a section entitled Add Media. This tool will allow you to quickly and easily encode individual videos in to one or more formats through your browser (via upload from hard drive, FTP, SFTP, S3, CloudFiles).
Watch Folder — Also in the client interface, the Watch Folder allows you to specify an FTP/SFTP/S3/CloudFiles directory for to "watch" at any frequency for new videos. After each watch interval all new videos added to this folder will be processed using the encoding setting you selected. You can have as many watch folders as you like, making it possible to encode a large video library with little or no setup or integration work. Please see our collection of articles about the Watch Folder for more details. 
XML API is the most flexible method. Custom file naming, multiple output formats and real time encoding status updates are important features available via our API.
