Transform and optimize your videos for various devices and platforms


The Video compression service provides a way to modify input videos by changing their bitrate and resolution. With support for multiple input formats and the flexibility to specify target resolution and bitrate using either concrete numeric values or predefined strings for typical uses, customers can optimize their video content for various devices and use cases.

A wide range of input video formats are supported, enabling video compression regardless of the original format and ensuring utilization across different platforms, devices, and playback environments.

The ability to specify target resolution and bitrate in several ways offers great flexibility. Videos can be easily adapted for different devices, screen sizes and network conditions, optimizing the viewing experience for their audience.

By converting videos to target resolutions and bitrates suitable for specific types of devices (e.g., mobile, tablet, desktop), the service ensures optimal playback performance and user experience. The delivered videos are tailored to the capabilities and display characteristics of different devices.

Typical use cases

Video compression can be used in the following use cases:

  • Multi-device content delivery - If video content is distributed across different platforms and devices, the videos can be adapted to the specific resolutions and bitrates required, ensuring the content is optimally displayed and performs well regardless of the specific platform.

  • Video advertisements - Video ads can be converted and optimized for various advertising channels and ad placements, such as mobile ads, in-app ads, desktop ads, etc.

  • Responsive web design - Videos can be adjusted to match the breakpoints in a responsive design, which guarantees that they are appropriately displayed and offers a consistent user experience across different screen sizes.
