D104 - HOW TO: Choosing the Best Streaming Player for the Right Device

sponsored by

With so many devices, browsers and operating systems in the market, companies are often left with confusing choices when it comes to their video players. Do you use open source technologies, or are you better off with a proprietary player? Should you build your own, or use one from a third party? Can you use the same player stack across all the devices you need to support, or will you need multiple solutions? Is it viable to still stream to the desktop with Flash and Silverlight, or can you build a streaming solution without any plug-ins? These and other questions are answered in this how-to session that outlines your options and explores the code necessary to build a modern streaming player.

D105 - Real World Comparisons of H.265 and H.264 Compression

As momentum behind HEVC/H.265 grows, questions around the readiness of the new technology surface daily. The hype is compelling: better compression and faster/cheaper delivery over lower bitrates. For content distributors distributing content to mobile devices over congested 3G/4G/LTE networks, these traits are highly desirable. In this session, learn if and how H.265 compression and deployment options can be utilized in typical online streaming workflows, and, more importantly, if your target audiences can benefit. Up-to-date examples using FFmpeg with x264 and x265 output are compared for bitrate, compression time, and file size.
