Hello Limelight Connect members.
Q: I only have MP4 files for my video library. How can I use MMD On Demand to power my VOD service for adaptive bitrate HLS and DASH delivery?
A: MMD OD (On Demand) has a powerful feature for VOD service providers who have MP4 versions of their video assets and do not want to encode them into various formats with separate manifests. Through a simple URL formation consisting of the various bitrate versions of the MP4s, you can have MMD OD dynamically create HLS, DASH, HDS and MSS manifests and ABR (Adaptive Bit Rate) streaming. This saves you the hassle of encoding your files to different bitrates and storage costs for the encodings and manifests you would have to create. Contact your Account Representative to find out more.
