Frequently Asked Questions

Yes – Once you sign up, your account comes with a 30 day free trial period.

Every time a user starts watching a video, we count one video view. If a user resumes a video, we don’t count any views.

You will be charged for the additional views at the end of your billing period.

You can upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time. Select the plan that best meets your needs. Upgrades and downgrades will be activated at the end of your billing period.

We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

There are no long-term commitments and you can cancel your subscription at any time.

Every time a video will be watched, we are counting one video impression. Refreshing the page and playing the video counts as one video impression. Pressing the play button after pressing the pause won’t be counted as an impression.

Who uses Bitmovin?

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes – Once you sign up (which does not require a credit card), your account comes with a 30 day free trial period. During this period you can use the entire feature set of our encoder, but usage is limited to a) one video at a time, b) only the first 5 seconds of your input file will be encoded and c) a watermark will be added on top of your encoded content.

Charges are based on a simple fee per output minute, calculated for each content/input minute. For example, if your input video duration is 2 minutes, and you encode 2 SD renditions, you end up with 4 (2 + 2) generated output minutes. See examples for further explanation.

Yes, the output resolution is different depending on the size, as the computational effort increases with larger frame sizes. While one SD content minute (defined as < 1280×720) equals 1 output minute, an HD content minute (defined as >= 1280×720 and <= 2048×1080) equals 2 output minutes, and an UHD content minute (defined as >= 2048×1080 and <= 4096×2160) equals 4 output minutes. The resolution of the input video does not impact pricing.

Yes, different codecs are priced differently as they differ in terms of computational effort. Codecs are mapped as factors for the per minute prices. The codec factors are H.264: 1x, VP9: 2x, H.265: 2x and AV1: 50x. So, a VP9 or H.265 SD content minute (defined as < 1280x720) equals 2 output minutes, an HD content minute (defined as >= 1280×720 and <= 2048×1080) equals 4 output minute and so forth. The codec of the input file does not impat pricing. We are happy to help calculating your use-case. In order to do so, please get in contact with our team via [email protected]

The additional effort to analyze and create the optimal bitrate ladder for every given asset in Per-Title Encoding Mode is reflected by a factor of 1.1 (similar to codec factors).

Yes, due to the nature of multi-pass encoding, more resources are needed to perform the additional passes. Factors, similar to codec factors, are used to reflect that in the pricing. For 2-Pass a factor of 1.25 and for 3-Pass a factor of 1.5 is applied. Please note, that the 2-Pass Encoding Mode is enabled by default.

We offer different muxing options, like fMP4 (DASH and/or HLS), MPEG-2 TS (HLS), progressive MP4. The first muxing is free of charge, every additional muxing adds ¼ output minute per audio/video stream.

To reflect the additional computation effort for calculating PSNR values an additional factor (similar to codec factors) of 1.3 is applied.

To reflect the additional computational effort for performing the object detection, 1 additional output minute is added per encoding input minute.

No, input minutes do not impact pricing, as we calculate fees based on generated output minutes only.

In case you exceed the included volume of your plan, the exceeded amount of minutes will be charged based on the overage price of your plan as part of the renewal of your billing period.

Yes, livestreaming is enabled in the trial period, but it's limited to 1 concurrent livestream with a maximum runtime of 15 minutes.

Livestreams are charged the same way as we charge of VoD content. The only difference is that we charge based on virtual output minutes. As soon as you start a live stream (even without an ingest) the needed infrastructure is available, thus we calculate the output minutes that this livestream would produce based on your chosen encoding configuration.

You can upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time by selecting the plan that fits your requirements best. Upgrades, as well as downgrades, will take effect at the end of your billing period.

We accept credit card payment using Visa, Mastercard, or American Express.

Bitmovin Video Encoding

Massively distributed video encoding that runs on any hardware or cloud infrastructure

We believe that video encoding should be decoupled from the underlying hardware to enable agile media teams to deploy anywhere based on their needs. We developed Bitmovin Video Encoding to be the most flexible encoding in the market that does not lock you into a specific hardware or cloud.

The cloud encoding service can be integrated into your chosen Content Delivery Network through our API giving you complete control over your files.
