Infomaniak offers presets with numerous formats (HLS, DASH, MP4, etc.), or you can define your own encoding rules (codec, bitrate, etc.).
A scalable platform that adapts to your needs
Do you want to control the delivery of your media, customise and adapt the player to your website, change the delivery quality or monetise your video? Anything’s possible.
It’s possible to insert an ad at the beginning (pre-roll), middle (mid-roll) or end (post-roll) of a video or playlist. It’s also possible to insert an ad over video content (overlay / toaster / non-linear). Everything is, of course, compatible with the IAB specifications (VAST 3, VAST 4 and VPAID)
Designed to integrate seamlessly with your services
Encodings can be optimised for webcasting or archiving.
Management from your FTP

Do you have any questions or doubts?
We’ve compiled the questions we’re often asked – see below.
What qualities can VOD support?
Infomaniak’s VOD platform manages all the current formats (HLS, DASH, MP4...) and qualities (720p, 1080p, 4K...), and you can freely customise your encoding rules if necessary. By default, videos are encoded to support multi-bitrate to provide the best possible experience for your viewers, regardless of their internet connection speed.
What are the advantages of the HLS or DASH format?
The HLS and DASH formats are more reliable, more secure and faster than the mp4 format. Also known as multi-bitrate or adaptive throughput, this technology segments the media into a sequence of small files:
- The quality automatically adjusts to the bandwidth or resolution of your viewers.
- Reading is much less likely to be interrupted when network quality deteriorates, such as on public transport.
- It’s much more complicated to download your content by retrieving the mp4 link directly.
If downloading a single mp4 file is something you want to offer your visitors, it’s entirely possible to combine the two.
Finally, these formats are natively supported by Safari and most players.
I want to store or encode audio, mp3 or m4a files
VOD / AOD is a platform for storing, encoding and webcasting video and audio. You can also archive and classify your media with a tree structure, as you would on your computer.
How is consumption calculated in the various plans?
The consumption corresponds to the storage used and the bandwidth consumed for webcasting your media.
Example with the 5 TB Pro plan:
If you have 100 GB of video on your space, then 4.9 TB are allocated to the webcasting (or downloading) of these videos by your users.
At the end of each billing month, the counter resets to 0, which unlocks another 5 TB (storage used + bandwidth consumption).
What sources are supported?
All common formats are natively supported. Feel free to try the platform and contact us if you encounter a problem with a specific format.
Does infomaniak provide a player? Can I use an external player?
Both solutions are possible.
We offer a complete player that can be integrated via an iframe code for each video. If you’ve kept the encoding parameters by default, the player will automatically adapt the quality of the media to your viewers’ circumstances. Infomaniak’s player can be customised and incorporates numerous functions: watermark, segmentation, playlist, ads, Chromecast, Picture-in-Picture...)
If you want to develop your own player or use a third-party solution, we provide all the necessary integration links (thumbnail, poster, multi-bitrate link, single bitrate, etc...).
Is it possible to monetise my videos or podcasts?
Yes, our player allows you to integrate the VAST / VPAID tags provided by advertising agencies so you can display PRE / MID / POST-ROLL according to your needs.
What’s the point of paying for a VOD / AOD service when some providers provide it for free?
- You have little or no control over the advertising on your media. If you are paid (which you may not be), you receive only a small percentage of the revenue.
- The player imposes a logo that’s not adapted to your brand image.
- Your content often becomes the property of these providers. You don’t control the use of your content or the data that’s analysed.
- Your content may be analysed for legal and advertising purposes.
- It’s impossible to get help or custom features in the event of problems or questions.
Infomaniak doesn’t analyse your media and offers advanced video management:
- Filing by tree structure for more practical storage
- Storage and bandwidth management
- Sending media online or via FTP or API
- Independent monetisation of your media
- Protection of your content
- Customization of player
- Protection of your content
Can I use this platform as a storage or archiving service?
Yes. You can store your sources and offer e.g. sharing links for submission to third parties. Automatic encoding rules dedicated for doing this have been provided.
Is it possible to store and share recordings of my live content?
Yes, Infomaniak’s VOD / AOD platform integrates perfectly with our video and radio streaming solution! You can schedule the recording of your live content from your stream. You can even automate this via our API and callback systems.
My videos are in 360°; is this compatible?
Infomaniak’s encoding and player are perfectly compatible with 360° videos. It means you can use this format in conjunction with the classic formats.
