Async HTML Embed Code

We Process The Videos For You

You are NOT a film editor?

+

The final .mp4 video files we encode contain the right audio and video codecs and are encoded at the right level to play natively across browsers, desktop players and devices.

We also extract a snapshot, place a keyframe at the beginning + the MOOV atom before that and add a watermark to any corner if needed.

Good To Go MP4
All incoming videos (.mov, .flv, .3gp, .webm, etc.) are transcoded to a fine tuned .mp4 file which plays across browsers, devices and desktop players.
Watermarks
With the Pipe PRO account you can easily add a PNG watermark to any corner of your videos. Not available with personal or trial accounts.
Snapshots
A snapshot is extracted from each video to make it easy to identify and embed the video later on.
Mobile Video Rotation
The device rotation is taken into account to make sure the resulting .mp4 and .jpg snapshot play in the correct orientation across devices.
MOOV Atom
Pipe places the famed MOOV atom at the beginning of the .mp4 file to ensure immediate playback over the web.
1st Keyframe Position
Pipe tries as much as possible to place a keyframe at the beginning of the video to ensure playback does not start with a black frame.
