Encoding Videos with Bits on the Run
account. A free account will give you up to one hour of video storage and 20
hours of streaming time per month. This should be just enough for this topic. If
you require more, you can always upgrade to a pro account.
After you have created your account, you will want to create templates for your
Templates allow you to create custom encoding templates for your videos and
audio. You can create a template once, and use it for all of your video and audio
NOTE: Unfortunately, if you create a template, you must manually re-
encode any videos with the new template. There is a way around this
by using the Bits on the Run API.
