HTTP Live Streaming (HLS)

Video Preview API

2-pass Video Encoding
Video quality depends on video bitrate. Unfortunately, a high bitrate also means a very large video file. 2-pass video encoding allows you to get the best balance between quality and size.
Auto Video Rotation
Sometimes, when you capture a video with your smartphone, the video might portrait or landscape mode, which is not ideal. Fortunately, this is no problem at all, as HeyWatch's mobile video encoder handles it automatically.
H264 Advanced Settings
For video experts who need very specific H264 parameters, we offer the complete range of settings. Thanks to this, you'll get the perfect video quality playback every time.
Multiple Output Formats
With HeyWatch, you can automatically encode a video in several output formats from a single input file. This is ideal for users who need to create multiple versions of the same original video file.
Video Format Creation
For video experts, we offer advanced options to create your own video format with unique settings (video bitrates, codec, etc). That way, you'll get their perfect video format for your needs. And, of course, we propose the most popular video formats: HTML5, iOS, Android, WebM, MP4, H.264, FLV. And soon VP9, x265, H265 and HEVC.
