Don’t make your users wait for encoding. With Mux, videos are encoded while the first viewers watch them. This just-in-time transcoding gives you the fastest video publishing possible. Whether it’s a 5-minute video or a 2-hour movie, you can watch it in just a few seconds after upload.

Never re-encode again

Devices change and new codecs are introduced, but with Mux you can future-proof your videos. Mux will automatically update codecs and renditions over the life of a video with no extra work or cost on your part.

Improved quality through machine learning

Mux Video uses machine learning to instantly choose the right resolutions and bitrates for each video (the "adaptive bitrate ladder"). The result: measurably better quality vs. encoding every video to the same static ladder.
