Whether you’re promoting a product or training a new user, video is a powerful platform for getting your message out. Delivering video at a scale that satisfies user demand, however, can be a challenge, and sites like Netflix set a high bar. Users expect videos to begin playing instantly on whatever device they use.
NGINX and NGINX Plus provide a complete application delivery platform with features specifically designed for streaming media on your site. NGINX can stream MP4 and Flash video on demand (VOD), as well as live video using the Real‑Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP), Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), and Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH).
NGINX Plus adds additional enterprise‑ready streaming media features, such as adaptive bitrate streaming for VOD, bandwidth controls for MP4 streaming, and enhanced session logging.
