Make the switch from Windows Media Streaming to Wowza Streaming Engine if you’re still using Windows Media Streaming Services. Windows Media Streaming was very popular with many at Universities and in the Enterprise. Around 2007 and prior, it seemed like many of my client had the server. That has changed and for today, the streaming server of choice is Wowza Streaming Engine. Whether it’s RTMP, HLS, MPEG-DASH, Adaptive Streaming, Transcoding Live Streams, DRM, or DVR it has you covered.

Utilizing Compression System Load in Squeeze

Posted by Derrick217 on October 28, 2017 under Video Streaming and Compression | Comments are off for this article

Utilizing Compression System Load in Squeeze Desktop is helpful when you want to take advantage of all of the CPU resources during encoding or if you don’t have the benefit of having a dedicated encoding workstation.

If you have an encoding workstation that does  nothing but encode videos (which I highly recommend), you can set your Compression System Load setting to Heavy. This means that Squeeze Desktop will use as much of your computer’s resources  as possible during your encoding job. Overall, this helps the video/videos to encode much quicker.

Setting Default Output Location for Watch Folder Encoding

Posted by Derrick217 on October 21, 2017 under Video Streaming and Compression | Comments are off for this article

Setting Default output location for Watch Folder encoding is key for file to end up in the right location. The default output location can be found in Squeeze Preferences and should be set to Same as Source. What I love about Squeeze Desktop is the software places source and output files in an intuitive location.

Here’s the breakdown of where source and output files appear after encoding:

  • CompletedSource
  • CompressedOutput

Notes: The files will appear in the created Watch Folder.
