Works with all major web and mobile video players.

Rather than require you to use a proprietary player, we made it easy to integrate with any video player you prefer. Don’t have a video player yet? Having built the leading open source web player, we can help you pick the right player for your app (web or native).


Thumbnails were never supposed to be difficult

Thumbnails are entry level when it comes to video, yet implementing them is far from simple. With a single request through Mux Video, get a thumbnail or an entire storyboard to use in your player to scrub preview images.

The API is such a joy to work with. Webhooks, thumbnail generation, and killer streaming performance–all from the start. Not to mention, the encoding speed has beaten all other providers we tested by a factor of 5.

Using the API is accelerating our development by a lot. It's the classic ‘they built exactly what developers need’ value proposition. The API is simple, and we know that the team has incredibly deep experience with transcoding pipelines and streaming optimization, so we don't have to worry about any of that. Instead, we can just focus on what's unique about our application.
