Effortlessly transcode

Transcoding, is the process of converting a media file or object from one format to a different format of similar or like quality to gain compatibility with another program or application or device. This is usually done in cases where a target playback device does not support the source format or has limited storage capacity that necessitates a reduced file size or a format that the end user's device recognizes. 5centsCDN offer VOD transcoding and Live transcoding.
