About Transcoder

Even though WordPress powers more than 34% of all the websites on the internet, we couldn’t find an easy way to transcode media files uploaded to our WordPress websites. That’s why we developed Transcoder for WordPress – with an idea of providing transcoding services to all WordPress sites for free.

Before Transcoder for WordPress was born, people had to convert media files from one format to another using an audio or video transcoding software before uploading them to their website. But now, with the help of Transcoder for WordPress, you can transcode media files automatically right from your website – essentially reducing one major step which consumed the most of your time. You can now concentrate on other business activities.

By using our transcoding service, you needn’t worry about setting up your own transcoder server or copying files manually. Everything will be taken care of by the plugin itself. All you need to do is install and activate the plugin on your website with a valid API key.

This is simply the best and easiest way to implement a web transcoder service to your WordPress site.

NOTE: We require the free plan users also to generate a valid license key from us to prevent misuse of our transcoder service and provide everyone with better user experience.
