November 02 2016 by Sara Howard

A few of the highlights:

8.0 screenshot-1.png

Native HTML5 Player (H.264 TP & MP4)

Enjoy seamless playback with no browser plug-in needed for all your H.264 transport stream (TP) and MP4 recordings. "It just works" for anyone in your organization, and across all browsers and devices including:

  • Windows
  • Macs
  • iPads & iPhones
  • Google Chromebooks and
  • Android phones and tablets

FlatDevices - encoder-02.png

Using SnapStream without a browser plug-in is easy... you just need your recordings in H.264, which you get automatically with the SnapStream Encoder. If you are recording to MPEG-2 or MPEG-2 TP, learn how you can start recording in H.264.

Automatic MP4 Conversion

Access your transcode settings in the admin panel to toggle this feature. Once toggled on, all of your H.264 clips will automatically be converted to MP4.

Untitled Screencast - Edited - Edited (1).gif

MP4 file format offers maximum compatibility with video editors (like Avid and Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere), social websites (such as Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram, etc) & mobile devices. Export MP4s directly into your video editing software, or clip directly to MP4 for easy integration with iOS and Android.

Frame-accurate Clipping (H.264 MP4 Recordings)

We’re always working to improve our clipping performance, and we’re happy to announce frame-accurate clippings for MP4 recordings.

Lineup Based Permissions
