Mux Video is an API-first video streaming platform, powered by data and designed by video experts to make beautiful video possible for every development team.
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
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 adaptive encoding delivers an experience that’s measurably better than ABR alone.
We can ingest almost every available codec including those for broadcast and professional applications like H.264, H.265, VP9, and Apple ProRes.
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.
POST the URL of any video file using the Mux API. Mux will ingest the file, create a video asset, and prepare it for streaming.
Add the Playback ID to stream.mux.com. Mux instantly creates the right renditions for every device and bandwidth, resulting in lower costs and better viewer experiences.
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).
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.”
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.”
