An Encoding Profile has the information for the encoder about the number of renditions that will be created for a video and audio file in multiple formats such as mp4 (480p, 360p, 240p), HLS, Smooth Streaming, mp3 (128p, 256p), etc. VIDIZMO allows you to define encoding profiles against any transcoder of your choice. These are primarily the output format profiles for any media file.

To learn more about Encoding Profiles, see: Understanding Encoding in VIDIZMO.
