The more encodings you have, the more options the player has to optimize the content for the available device and bandwidth. But, more encodings can result in increased billing charges.
The processing profile you choose affects two billing metrics:
- Transcoded Minutes—determined by the following formula: (Length of Source Video in Minutes) * (Number of encodes), more encodes in your processing profile results in more transcoded minutes per video uploaded.
- Delivery—the higher the bitrate, the higher the delivery usage.
