How To: Encoding Video for iDevices

At the Streaming Media East show, on May 10th and 11th, we've got Jan Ozer doing a hands-on presentation on "How To: Encoding Video for iDevices" as part of our HTML5 track. This session starts by detailing the playback specs for all iDevices, old and new. Then, you'll learn the strategies used by prominent iTunes publishers to serve the complete range of installed iDevices. Next, the session switches to cellular wireless delivery, with a technical description of Apple's HTTP Live Streaming, including recommendations for the number of streams and Apple's encoding parameters. The session concludes with a review of encoding options for HTTP Live Streaming and techniques for serving multiple target platforms like Flash and iDevices with one set of encoded H.264 files.
