Encoding.com has changed the video encoding landscape yet again by bringing all of the power and functionality of our API to the browser and launching a web interface that rivals any desktop video encoding experience. It is easy to throw a lot of features into a browser, but much more difficult to make those features intuitive without sacrificing flexibility or power. Log in, tour the new UI, and let us know what you think.
Our UI allows you to quickly configure your encoding workflow. Ingest your files from any location and set your encoding parameters to your liking in just a few quick steps.

NOTE: We offer the option to use our Aspera powered desktop uploader for high-speed ingest using simple drag and drop. For more information on how to use this method for larger, bulk files or any other Encoding.com questions, we offer free consultation to better assist you. We also offer full support and assistance on all uploading options.
You can select as many output formats as you’d like for your video.
Once you select your parameters, we process your video and deliver to your specified FTP, SFTP, Amazon S3, RackSpace Cloud Files, or Microsoft Azure storage locations.

Through our UI, you can monitor your account and encoding queue both historically and in real-time. You can check your stats on encoding bandwidth and processor consumption. In addition, we offer live encoding metrics, such as encoding success rate, average queue time, average processing time, connection speed (between source location and chosen processing center).
To keep an eye on the processing time of your encoding jobs, we have created an encoding queue to monitor progress. With the queue feature, you can track your % job completion, details on all output tasks, number of processing threads per output task, queue/encoding time, the job created/started/finished timestamps, and info on your source media. Through this feature, we also allow you to restart, edit, retry, delete or stop your job.TEST OUR SPEED FOR FREE
Through our UI you can also configure a watch folder. The watch folder enables you specify a storage location to load videos to be batch processed on demand based on your specified check frequency. No code required! Once you set up the watch folder, you and other team members can add your assets, and, on a regular interval (once every 5 seconds to once every 24 hours), we will check the watch folder and automatically start transcoding your assets.
Our billing management feature assists with detailed lists of all current and historic invoices. It also enables you to update payment methods at any time. This feature helps you to track and audit your spending with Encoding.com over any time frame.

We also offer access to Vid.ly tracking through our UI. Vid.ly is our cutting edge solution to delivering your video anywhere to any device. With vid.ly, Encoding.com manages all the heavy lifting required to host video including transcoding, device detection, content delivery, security and analytics. Our UI enables you to monitor your vid.ly projects and check their status looking at several variables.
We offer you the option to select and look at very specific details of your Vid.ly account:
You can get an overall snapshot of your Vid.ly videos – storage, thumbnails, duration, etc. This tab gives you a big picture look at your videos with Vid.ly.
You can easily customize the look and feel of the Vid.ly player. Simply download our CSS documentation, tailor to fit your needs, and then re-upload to seal the deal. Files ending in .css are required for upload.
You can secure your vid.ly in many ways with the UI. Lets look at the following fields:
- Start Date: Please state the time stamp in which you want your Vid.ly to become available. This is helpful for upcoming campaigns. Please format as YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS. Please note that the HH:MM:SS is optional.
- Expire Date: Please state the time stamp in which you want your Vid.ly to become unavailable. This is helpful for upcoming campaigns. Please format as YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS. Please note that the HH:MM:SS is optional.
Customization is key these days! Need your URL to reflect a product, event or milestone? Enter in a new URL and we will customize your Vid.ly URL. Please note that this service costs $5.00 a month per custom URL.
Here you can view the embed code and its variations. By default, we include our suggested embed code for Vid.ly. Please use this as a baseline for all embeds.
If you are well versed in how to control the behavior of embeds, please go ahead and customize this simple embed. Enable HTTPS on your embed; the embed code will switch to the secure version. Combine this with your organization’s CSS and you have a custom look and feel to your embed.
This speaks for itself. Play / Preview your Vid.ly directly from this UI.
For anyone looking to change the default thumbnail for a Vid.ly, this is the tool of choice. We generate three thumbnails, from the 33%, 66%, 99% mark in your video. You can also upload a local still image to serve as a thumbnail for your Vid.ly.
Now available via the Vid.ly API and the Encoding.com web UI, existing FreeWheel customers can easily and seamlessly integrate video advertisements into an individual Vid.ly URL or globally across all active Vid.ly URLs associated with the account.

When a visitor views a Vid.ly URL with FreeWheel enabled, Vid.ly will pass their user information to the FreeWheel ad server and they will receive a targeted video advertisement (pre/mid/post roll or banner overlays).
Vid.ly currently supports video player advertisements for both HTML5 and Flash players.
