Processing Speed

Processing speed in VOD encoding refers to the time required to complete the encoding job. By determining resource allocation, you can specify the desired speed level. This process involves compressing video and audio data to reduce file size without compromising quality.

Specifying Processing Speed Level

To specify the processing speed level for your VOD encoding jobs, configure the associate API request body during creation:

POST /bv/cms/v1/vods

Configure the queue in the request body with the following options:

Query ParametersDescription
QUEUE_STANDARDStandard processing speed with a queue for available resources.
QUEUE_PRIORITYFaster processing speed to minimize encoding lead time by guaranteeing available parallel resources for processing.
"queue":"QUEUE_PRIORITY"

Factors Affecting VOD Encoding Time

The time required to complete VOD encoding depends on specific conditions:

  • Video Length: Longer videos take more time to encode.

  • ProfileSet: Encoding with higher quality profiles, such as 4K resolution, may extend encoding time.

  • Frames Per Second (fps): Higher fps options result in longer encoding times due to the additional data processing.
