Allow easy integration with Zencoder transcoding service to make HTML5 compatible
video files. At the moment it generates up to 4 different formats:
- mp4 (h.264)
- low-resolution (640×480) mp4.
These formats are based on Zencoder’s HTML5 video job template. If there’s
enough request for additional formats, they could be added in later versions.
Just didn’t want to overcomplicate this initial release.
This plugin strictly sends jobs and receives notifications from Zencoder. It
does not try to do anything else but it should intergrate nicely with other
plugins such as Video.js – HTML5 Video Player for WordPress.
