Related Terms :  

The process of converting digital video files from one format to another is known as Video Encoding.  As different browsers and devices support different video formats, all the videos must go through an encoding process to convert the original source video to be viewable on different devices (Including set-top boxes, mobile phones, tablets, computers) and browsers. Alternatively, this process is known as “video conversion” or “transcoding”.
