The Transcoder plugin allows you to transcode any video or animated gif (local or remote) to any size, bitrate, framerate, and save it out as a web-ready video in a variety of file formats.

It can also transcode audio files to any bitrate & sample rate, to a variety of file formats. It can even extract audio tracks from video files.

Transcoder also allows you to get a thumbnail of a video in any size and at any timecode, and can extract information about audio/video files such. It also automatically adds video thumbnails in the Assets index in the AdminCP.

Finally, it lets you download an arbitrary file (such as the transcoded video) via a special download link.

If the source file has changed since the last time the video/audio was transcoded, it will re-encode the file and replace it.


Price includes 1 year of updates.
$29/year per site for updates after that.
