FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
We require you to first register for a test account. Once you are registered, you will be able to upgrade to a paid subscription.
Transcoding is the conversion of video- and audio files from one format into another video- or audio format. This makes content available on many different platforms and devices and accessible to more users.
Use Webgate as your transcoding engine and render your video content. You can choose to render your video files automatically or manually. Select your resolutions and decide whether you would like to render an optional watermark into your files.
We distinguish streaming and download versions. A streaming version cannot be downloaded. If you would like to provide a downloadable version of your content, you will have to render an additional download version. The first download version you render for your video file is included. Additional rendering of download versions is deducted from your transcoding credit.
Re-rendering is included in your package. So there is no need to worry if you forgot to render a resolution, you can re-render it anytime without any additional cost. This is valid for download and streaming versions.
By distinguishing streaming and download formats your costs are kept transparent and you always know what you pay for.
We charge you depending on how much you use our transcoding engine. This is done via transcoding minutes. A transcoding minute equals the length of your video file.
To better visualize and explain this, we have included an exemplary calculation for a video of a length of one minute.
A video file with a length of one minute results in the following transcoding minutes (rendering refers to either streaming or download):
Render your file in all available formats (180p, 270p, 540p, 720p, 1080p): One transcoding minute
Render your file with a watermark in all available resolutions: One transcoding minute
Render an additional watermark in all available resolutions: One additional transcoding minute
Special watermark (set up individually for each person): One additional transcoding minute per watermark
