About a year ago, we released audio-only support for on-demand video files. We’re excited to announce that we now support live audio! If you have a live radio station, podcast, or any sort of live broadcasting, Mux can be the single platform for both your live video and audio streaming.
In addition to improving the video experience for your users, we also want to improve your experience using Mux and hope this helps simplify your workflow. The same API call works whether it’s audio or video, just set the flag for audio-only, so you can send us either with no changes to workflow on your side.

This feature is currently available for all Mux Video customers. Audio-only support costs 1/10th of video encoding, storage, and streaming. Check out our pricing page for details.
