Master videos cannot be streamed directly on the Internet. They must be converted or
transcoded first into a streaming format. Use the Ooyala Transcoding Service (OTS) to convert your files from a source format to an output format.
Encoding Recommendations for Player V3 (Deprecated)
Different devices impose different restrictions on the type of encodes they can play, so the challenge of streaming video is to find the right balance between bitrate (amount of bits in one second of video) and resolution (number of pixels in a second of video) for each viewer's connection speed and playback device. These recommendations apply to Player V3.
