Transcoder

Description

Transcoder easily converts all audio and video files uploaded to your website to a web-friendly format.

Transcoder eliminates the need for a dedicated media node- no fiddling with installation, managing dependancies or renting servers! Transcoder also works on shared hosting- just install, subscribe and go!

All transcoding services are available via a subscription plan through this plugin.
Subscribe to our free plan from the plugin’s settings or from our product page. Note that Transcoder will not provide any services without a subscription plan.

Supported input media types:

  • Audio: mp3, m4a, wav, ogg, wma
  • Video: 3g2, 3gp, avi, flv, m4v, mp4, mpg, ogv, webm, wmv

Supported output media types:

  • Audio: mp3
  • Video: mp4

Create the ultimate niche community by combining Transcoder with our rtMedia plugin. Transcoder works perfectly with rtMedia to create a social experience that is accessible across all desktop and mobile devices.

Transcoder Features

  1. Works with ANY WordPress website – Transcoder plugs into your current website seamlessly, instantly improving user audio/video experience.
  2. rtMedia integration – Works perfectly with our own rtMedia, for a complete social media platform.
  3. Thumbnail generation – Automatically generate up to 10 thumbnails for every video, from which your users can choose one.
  4. [rt_media] shortcode – Use our shortcode to display transcoded audio/video file on any post or page. For example, [rt_media attachment_id=xx] the attachment_id parameter specifies the file to be displayed.

Privacy Warning

In order for us to transcode your media files, we need to copy it over to our server.
After transcoding is completed, the media can reside on our server for a maximum of 24 hours, before it is permanently and irreversibly removed by a Cron job.

Future Roadmap

  • Additional output formats for video- ogg, webm
  • Downsampling capabilities for output video resolution
  • RESTful API
