Transcoding

Adaptive bitrate streaming (Transcoding) is available only in the higher-end versions of Livebox.

   If you are streaming and you want to carry out the same streaming across your other channel, then you can take through your video to the other channel by using Transcoding. Transcoding also helps to achieve yourself in adjusting your stream with your viewer’s video quality. To start off with transcoding,
  • Create both output and input server channels in Livebox.
  • Go to Manage Channels from the navigation menu. Under manage channels, click Transcoding.
