“By working with Onlinelib, we were able to integrate Encoding and HTTP Streaming into our application and are excited to be using this technology, which provides bit-rate switching and skip ahead." A. Custer, Slot3.com
Luenen (PRWEB) April 22, 2010
Onlinelib.de (http://onlinelib.de/en/home), the leading global technology company for streaming and encoding, today announced a ready to go solution for Adobe´s [R] HTTP Streaming technology.
The HTTP Streaming and Encoding solution allows publishers, webmaster and CDN (Content Delivery Networks) to provide users with a better video experience by continuously adapting the video stream in real-time to match the user's available bandwidth, all over a simply webserver technology.
These features are designed to allow publishers and content owners to deliver significantly higher quality video experiences and embrace long-form content distribution, as more consumers are watching online video offered in higher quality on PC Windows, MAC OSX, Unix, Android, Palm, Symbian and all other devices that will support the Flashplayer 10.1.
Onlinelib.de is excited to bring Adobe's [R] new streaming capability (http://onlinelib.de/demos/fhttp3) to millions of customers.
The Dynamic HTTP streaming solution for flash [R] is a new feature that seamlessly switches between different quality versions of a single video stream to deliver the optimal viewing experience for the consumer.
HTTP streaming has come into fashion because it is especially good at dealing with fluctuations in bandwidth conditions and demand. Using standard web servers, an HTTP video stream can change between different quality chunks of the same content, to deliver the best video that can be received at the time.
Content owners won’t have to re-encode their videos to use the HTTP protocols (though they will have to go through the additional step of chunking files into versions at different bitrates).
For Packing and Encoding Onlinelib offers a CPU Multicore H.264 Encoder and in the next half of 2010 a Nvidia CUDA H.264 Encoder Plugin for Harmonic (Rhozet – http://rhozet.com) Carbon Coder or Server Trancoding engine. Other Plugins for other plattforms are under heavy development.
Today some companies have found a way to work around Adobe’s lack of HTTP streaming support by using the Flash Player’s progressive download API. But Onlinelib´s support will make Flash HTTP better for content owners because it will enable free file segment encryption and dynamic ad insertion.
