DVR Streaming With Wowza Media Server is more common as a streaming delivery method for Live Streaming. Not only can you provide a Live Stream for your audience but you can also allow viewers to rewind the stream to watch the part that they missed. Since implementing Wowza with DVR provides a caching mechanism as it records, it makes for a great user experience for Live Streaming with DVR. If you’re interested in learning how to set up DVR attend our Wowza Advanced Topics Training – 201.

Convert multiple .MOD files with MPEG Streamclip

Posted by Derrick on December 2, 2013 under Video Streaming and Compression | Comments are off for this article

Convert multiple .MOD files with MPEG Streamclip to improve your video compression workflows. MPEG Streamclip created by SQUARED 5 has long been one of my favorite video compression and encoding tools for close to 10 years. It’s by far one of the best free video and audio encoding tools that I’ve seen around. In addition, it’s a wonderful tool for performing batch compression or converting of files from one format to another. If you need to convert multiple .MOD files from .MOV, H.264 or to other formats, then consider using MPEG Streamclip. Now, when I talk of multiple file conversion I’m talking about converting/encoding 100 or 200 files. You can convert even more files if you’d like.

To get a feel of some of the other tasks you can do with MPEG Streamclip review some of the previous blog write-ups below:

Converting hundreds of MOD video files to .MOV

Working with MPEG-1 Muxed Media Files

Making Video Adjustments Encoding with MPEG Streamclip

If you’d like to learn more hands-on tasks, you can attend one of our 2-Day Video Streaming and Compression Training classes. Give us a call to sign up to attend our 2-Day Video Streaming and Compression Trainings On-site, On-line, in Orlando, Florida or Columbus, Ohio.
