Last Wednesday (on August 17, 2011), encoding.com, the leading provider of online encoding services, announced
the production release of its Vid.ly Pro version. The Company had launched the vid.ly solution
this February, which would allow the users to have free encoding and hosting of their videos, without the need to worry about format of the upload content.
While the original vid.ly automatically encodes the content in 25-odd formats to deliver on different devices and software, the Pro version also allows the users to increase the bit rates and even remove the unneeded formats. Apart from this, the solution also supports adaptive bit streaming and allows the customers to use a Content Delivery Network of their choice from a wide variety. The solution still allows CDN only through the vid.ly accounts, but will allow users to use their own accounts in the future. Apart from this, various analytics and customizable HTML5 video player will also be added to the system.
Encoding.com mentioned that the pricing for this new system is usage based and the variables include various parameters like number of videos uploaded, bandwidth used and storage size.
