Zencoder is a cloud service for video encoding that let you convert to HTML5 and WebM. Through a simple API, you can have high-performance, high-quality video encoding for web and mobile.
“At Zencoder, we encourage our content publishers to support HTML5 video. Though HTML5 video is relatively new, it’s now playable by more than 50% of Internet users, and that number is growing quickly.
We’re committed to open technology and believe that WebM is the way forward for open video. Our open-source HTML 5 video player, VideoJS, makes it easy to play WebM content in web browsers and mobile devices–but WebM encoding is needed too,” noted Zencoder
Starting today, the company is offering promotional pricing on WebM encoding. Until June 5th, 2011, all WebM encoding will be billed at 50% off of their published prices ($0.02-$0.05 per minute of video).
Also, to make it easy for publishers to convert large content collections to WebM, the comapny launched a new batch video encoder. This service makes it easy to transcode entire content libraries to WebM, but also to HD or for HTTP adaptive streaming.
