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