Our Video API was built to scale. You’ll never have to worry about spikes in usage or spinning up additional servers. Plus, there are no caps on the size or number of video files you can run through Mux.
Mux uses Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) streaming with HLS, which allows a video player to automatically choose the right video size for a viewer's device and connection speed. Our per-title and audience adaptive encoding delivers an experience that’s measurably better than ABR alone.
We can ingest almost every available codec including those for broadcast and professional applications like H.264, H.265, VP9, and Apple ProRes.
New devices, new formats, no problem. We’ll worry about building video infrastructure that stays ahead of the curve so you don’t have to.
POST a video to the Mux Video API.
Add the Playback ID to stream.mux.com and you’re ready to integrate with your video player.
Rather than require you to use a proprietary player, we made it easy to integrate with any video player you prefer. Don’t have a video player yet? Having built the leading open source web player, we can help you pick the right player for your app (web or native).
Need live video streaming? Our API also works for live streaming. Our infrastructure scales to handle thousands of concurrent live streamers and millions of viewers. Plus, adaptive bitrate delivery with live cloud video encoding so they get the best possible quality.
"We got it working for both the web and iOS Mammalz platforms and it’s like night and day compared to our previous build. I can jump between videos of any size and length with less than a second of loading time and no buffering in almost any bandwidth environment."
“A fitness product is incredibly sophisticated to make. Out of all the technologies we use, Mux was the easiest for us to implement. We actually over-budgeted our resources for it. And because we delivered the Mux integration ahead of schedule, it enabled us to deliver on future functionality earlier.”
