Content Partner Transcoding Recommendations

If you’re a large video producer, Wurl provides an option for you to provide your own transcoding and deliver your videos through your own CDN. Contact Wurl to make arrange­ments for this.

If you plan to do your own transcoding, you will need to provide Wurl with HLS version 3 transcoded videos. When you transcode to HLS, you should should include at least four rendi­tions with different bitrates. The table below provides an example of acceptable rendi­tions (contact us for more details). When you transcode, these guide­lines are important:

  1. Set max bitrate to 1.5x target bitrate.
  2. Set buffer size to 6x target bitrate.
  3. We prefer 2 second segments, but 10 second segments are acceptable.
