Transcoding Video Through Dynamic Cloud Allocation
On the fly, transcoding of video content or streams is becoming an increasing requirement for the media industry. This is mainly due to the increase in the number of different devices and platforms that can be used to play the video content as well as the numerous numbers of available codecs. Cloud computing is a natural way to do on the fly transcoding of these streams as it is possible to create a temporary computer farm needed to run these transcoding jobs without having to configure them manually. Therefore, depending on the size of these video files, the content can be delivered to any type of device, seamlessly.
