permalink What incoming video formats are compatible with Zencoder?

Nearly everything. We know that it’s difficult to predict what types of formats might be uploaded to your application, especially with user-generated content, so our goal is to accept every video format possible. So we support hundreds of codecs and formats, including all of the most common ones.

It’s actually probably more helpful to talk about the formats we don’t support, since that’s a manageable list. At the moment, there are only a few:

  • Apple Intermediate
  • HDV 720p60
  • Go2Meeting3 (G2M3)
  • Avid Meridien Uncompressed

Other than these codecs, which we hope to support soon, we can handle just about anything. And if you find something we don’t support, let us know – chances are we can figure out a way to make it work.
