Focus on building your product,
we'll handle the hard parts of video.

Icon

Scales automatically

Our Video API was built to scale. You’ll never have to worry about spikes in usage or spinning up additional servers. Plus, there are no caps on the size or number of video files you can run through us.

Icon

Reach every viewer

Mux uses Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) streaming with HLS, which allows a video player to automatically choose the right video size for a viewer’s device and connection speed. Our per-title and audience adaptive encoding delivers an experience that’s measurably better than ABR alone.

Icon

Throw any file at us

We can ingest almost every available codec including those for broadcast and professional applications like H.264, H.265, VP9, and Apple ProRes.

Future proof your video stack

New devices, new formats, no problem. We’ll worry about building video infrastructure that stays ahead of the curve so you don’t have to.

Works with all major web and
mobile video players.

Rather than require you to use a proprietary player, we made it easy to integrate with any video player you prefer. Don’t have a video player yet? Having built the leading open source web player, we can help you pick the right player for your app (web or native).

Live streaming

Need live video streaming? Our API also works for live streaming. Our infrastructure scales to handle thousands of concurrent live streamers and millions of viewers. Plus, adaptive bitrate delivery with live cloud video encoding so they get the best possible quality.

From our customers

“Of the 41 days of development it took to earning our first revenue with hosting our big event, I don’t think the Mux integration took more than a couple days of my attention – that includes live streaming, video hosting, automatic webhook integration for notifications, and the Mux Data integration.”

Paul Campbell, Co-Founder

“A fitness product is incredibly sophisticated to make. Out of all the technologies we use, Mux was the easiest for us to implement. We actually over-budgeted our resources for it. And because we delivered the Mux integration ahead of schedule, it enabled us to deliver on future functionality earlier.”
