No format, protocol, or encoding expertise required
Stream works with all of the most widely used video players, and provides an integrated web player, allowing you to create your ideal viewer experience, without having to start from scratch.
Stream uses industry standard protocols with wide compatibility, allowing you to stream video to websites, native iOS and Android apps, and media streaming devices like Apple TV and Roku.
Stream automatically encodes and delivers the ideal quality for each individual viewer, whether they’re on 4G on their phone or watching on the big screen at home.
Stream provides simple APIs that every engineer on your team already knows. You never need to learn about new protocols, video formats or encoding pipelines — we optimize all of this for you.

Pay only for minutes of video delivered and minutes of video stored. We never charge for encoding, bandwidth or any other metric, and you pay only one provider for all video needs.
Reliable, highly performant on-demand video experience for users across the globe — regardless of connection speed, device, or video formatting.
The features you need to deliver an exceptional live streaming experience for any number of global users, across a huge variety of connections, devices, and concurrent platforms.
